article imageOp-Ed: Who owns the Budweiser name?

By Joseph Boltrukiewicz     Oct 25, 2010 in Lifestyle
It's all weird to me now and I must admit that I haven't investigated this problem yet. It's all about beer that I like and I hope you do too.
Budweiser, as the name goes, comes from the name of Budvar that originates from the city of České Budějovice in Czech Republic as far as I have always known.
Now we have the event of the World Cup in soccer in South Africa and we learn that Budweiser beer is the main sponsor of the world class event. Moreover, the US Budweiser says that their product is "the king of beers".
Helloooo???, where's the Irish Guinness, by the way?
Now the question, do they advertise the "real", I mean the Czech Budweiser, beer to the world community?
Wikipedia website says that:
The American lager was originally brewed as an imitation of the famous Bohemian original, but over time has developed its own identity and attained remarkable commercial success. Anheuser-Busch has made offers to buy out the Czech brewing company in order to secure global rights to the name "Budweiser", but the Czech government has refused all such offers, regarding the Czech Budweiser name to be a matter of national pride.
OK, whatever the legal rights are, I have always maintained that the Czech beer is the only one true and original beer and the North-American version of it is pretty far and away from its original taste and tradition of making it.
Well, before I get any comments from you, I am going to show you the real beer, original Budweiser's bottle. I am really sorry that I can't transfer the original taste to all of you located anywhere in the world as the Czech Budweiser still preserves the taste and originality that's hard to be transferred online to all of you interested in the issue.
Anyway, cheers to originality and good taste!
Sad to say, the US Budweiser taste is not included! Sorry guys... but you're too young to come up with second to the real excellence!
Now you can ask me why it's excluded. The answer is unknown until you taste the real Budweiser, made in České Budějovice. To many of you, not familiar with the real beer that originates from another country than the US of A it can be a real surprise but its label says it all.
My recommendation is to read the label and learn where the real beer is made.
And remember it!
Cheers to all of you!
