Forget 'America', how about ''Murica' beer?

Posted: Updated:
SAUGATUCK, MI (WNEM) -

A Michigan brewery taking a shot at Anheuser-Busch’s plan to temporarily re-name its Budweiser beer “America”.

Saugatuck Brewing announced they are rolling out a new drink called “’Murica” in a satirical post.

In a post on its Facebook page, Saugatuck Brewing says “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.”

It goes on to explain the taste of the new beer. Heady, hoppy? Nope. “What does it taste like, you ask? Freedom. It tastes like Freedom.”

But if you’re hoping to settle back with a bottle of “’Murica” this summer, we’re sorry to disappoint.

It was all a joke, and there will be no actual beer.
