Love how all of the major American breweries depend on marketing gimmicks to divert attention from the fact that their product is terrible.

I guess when you are producing tasteless swill, you have to resort to gimmicks like this. If Budweiser didn't have established relationships with major league sports, they would go out of business. Given a choice, does anyone actually voluntarily choose this beer?

People drink it because it's relatively cheap in price - quantity over quality. The key here is that Budweiser has found a way to charge the same amount for less beer (11.3 oz. instead of 12). The "commemorative design" rhetoric they are using is just noise to distract folks from this obvious money grab.

And funny that craft beers that taste good still come in regular cans and bottles. They don't need cans that turn blue, or have larger openings, or cyclone necks, or aluminum bottles, or bowtie-shaped cans. Just put a good product into a traditional container and will sell just fine.

@detached - I agree on it's poor quality, but would chose it in a heartbeat over Miller.

@hasbro, why don'yt you try a real beer, instead iof this mass produced swill coming from all of the big brewerieas in the states. Next time out at the restaurant or bar, try a Surly, or a Summit, or any of the other craft beers that are made here in our great state. I will never go back to drinking anything made by Miller, or Budweiser, or Coors, etc. It is just domestic swill

@nkpguy, sorry Primo is brewed in Hawaii, and is owned by Pabst. Although the front office is located in Honolulu and the main Pabst headquarters are in Chicago, Illinois, the Primo Lager sold in state is produced on the island of on Kauai at the Keoki Brewing Company, which still adds sugar cane to each batch.[5]

I prefer Mendota Springs to Budweiser. I get the lime flavored as it saves me a step of adding it in like for a Corona.
