Following the announcement that Budweiser is changing its name to "America" this summer, a West Michigan brewery has an announcement of its own.

Saugatuck Brewing Company shared via Facebook the company's new name and packaging: " 'Murica. Celebrating our freedom to taste."

Poking fun at the Belgian multinational corporation A-B InBev that owns Budweiser, Saugatuck Brewing writes,

Fear not, America. We're here to make beer named after America great again.

We're very proud to introduce our brand new name and packaging, along with the assurance that all of our beer is brewed under the careful watch of 1,776 Bald Eagles. This ensures that every drop of our beer is as true and honest as our fore fathers before us. Unlike other "America" beers, our brewery is completely American owned.

What does it taste like, you ask? Freedom. It tastes like Freedom.

Drink American, drink Saugatuck Brewing Company.


The company responded to the Facebook post Thursday,  to "clear the air".

This beer, ‘Murica, was and is a piece of satire meant to bring a few laughs, have a little fun and express a little creativity.

So, to clear the air and explain a few things:
- We do not intend on ever making this an actual beer.
- We do not have 1,776 Bald Eagles at the brewery (but how cool would that be?)
- We love America, we love all beer, we love to have a good time.

We hope you all got a good laugh out of it, we know we did. I can promise you that even though we are not creating a beer called ‘Murica, we do have a lot of really great beer that you should give a try. Though they might not all taste like freedom, they all certainly taste delicious.
