The New Republic rag-mag probably wanted the beer to be renamed “Amerika.”

Via BizPac Review.

Trump is getting blamed from a far-left publication for something that’s really pretty awesome – patriotic beer.

Donald Trump was not the mastermind behind the new summer marketing campaign that proudly says “America” across the iconic cans, but he might get credit, or blame, for it either way….

The article tiresomely discusses the “psychology” behind such a rarely seen patriotic display. Taken from New Republic’s article:

This stupid Budweiser campaign is Donald Trump’s fault. If we think of the U.S. presidential election season not only as a grand exercise in democracy, but as a vast proving ground for how to sell a message to millions of Americans, then Trump’s campaign is surely being studied by every marketing agency in the country. The secret to his success, and the main rhetorical innovation he has brought to presidential politics, is to dispel subtlety altogether and make subtext text….

    It appears that this is a name change starting in the summer and running until the November election, according to this publication. Save those cans … they may become a collector’s item.

    Lastly, even though Anheuser-Busch is owned by the Belgian company InBev, Bud is still brewed in the US, and their beautiful Clydesdale horses are raised in the US as well. So the America name is still appropriate.

    Speaking of ‘collector’s item’ beer cans. Those of us old enough to remember ‘Billy Beer’ Those empties have the bidding start at 1.99 with 2.99 shipping on our favorite site.

    A related story: West Philadelphia’s Dock Street Brewery is coming out with:

    The first in the “Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote Drumpf” series will be Short-Fingered Stout, a bitter and delusional stout with an airy, light-colored head atop a so-so body. Don’t worry, its bark is worse than its bite; this big baby comes in at a somewhat conservative 4.5% ABV.
