A famous beer is changing its name. The company Anheuser-Busch (AB) will change the name Budweiser to 'America' for six months. Budweiser was the USA's most popular beer, but sales are down. The word 'America' will be in the same font that AB uses for Budweiser. Also, the initials "US" will replace "AB".

The new name is part of a new Budweiser campaign. This starts on May 23 and ends with the U.S. elections in November. AB wants people to feel proud of America – both the company and its beer. AB said it always tries hard to show the good things about the USA. Budweiser has been in the USA for 140 years.
