AB might have trademarked the name first, but there's no denying what came first! Go give this one a try!
again... sounds like a small time brewery trying to capitalize on the hugeness that is anheiser bush and their budweiser... ok... i can claim that i first came up with the name microsoft well before bill gates started his company, and i may be right, but if i never went and trademarked the name until after bill did, then i have no argument.

i'm not saying the beer isn't good, and i'm not saying budweiser is a luxary item that i adore... i drink it, but i'm a guinness person, myself.

i'm just sayin' their argument sounds pretty thin

OK fair enough. I just think its a bit crap to start a dispute over a brand name when the place is called "Budweis" and beer brewed there is thus called "Budweiser" and they've been brewing since the 13th Century!

It's just something I find annoying - i.e. when someone tries to copyright something thats historical and been made/happening for years and then completely bastardizes it. AB Budweiser may technically be beer but there's just nothing to it, no flavour, body, character, etc......

Ever try the Light McSorelys there? I did once and I think the dark blows the light out of the water.
