The angle here is that it has fewer calories than Budweiser (though barely, at 137 per bottle to Bud's 145; Bud Light has 110) but higher alcohol (6%, compared to Bud's 5 and Bud Light's 4.2). I blind-tasted Bud Light Platinum and Bud Light, and I was surprised how easy it was to tell the difference.
- Anheuser-Busch. Notes / Commercial Description: Bud Light is brewed using a blend of premium aroma hop varieties, both American-grown and imported, and a combination of barley malts and rice. Its superior drinkability and refreshing flavor makes it the world's favorite light beer.

- Miller Lite, also known simply as Lite, is a 4.2% ABV American light pale lager sold by MillerCoors of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States. Miller Lite competes with Anheuser-Busch's Bud Light beer. The company also produces Miller Genuine Draft and Miller High Life.
The company operates 12 breweries in the United States and nearly 20 in other countries, which increased recently since Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV acquired SABMiller. Brands include Budweiser, Busch, Michelob, Bud Light, and Natural Light.
- All the beer you drink is owned by one company. If you like cheap beer, then this is the merger for you. Global megabrewer Anheuser-Busch InBev announced Tuesday that it had reached a tentative agreement to purchase its rival SABMiller for $104 billion.
- Busch Entertainment Corporation, now called SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, was created as a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch Companies to run the various parks in 1959. In 2009, InBev, the new owners of Anheuser-Busch, sold the amusement parks to the Blackstone Group.
- Guinness Brewery. St. James's Gate Brewery (Irish: Grúdlann Gheata Naomh Séamuis) is a brewery founded in 1759 in Dublin, Ireland, by Arthur Guinness. The company is now a part of Diageo, a British company formed from the merger of Guinness and Grand Metropolitan in 1997.
Budweiser, owned by the Belgium-based brewing company Anheuser-Busch InBev, believes passionately in commodifying national pride for election season. Their cans will boast other “American-born” terms as well, like “e pluribus unum” (in place of “King of Beers”) and “indivisible since 1776.”

The Busch family behind Budweiser beer sold the business in 2008, when a group of Brazilian and Belgian investors led InBev's takeover of Anheuser-Busch.
- Part of the beers' advertising hook — Black Crown is new, with a 2013 Super Bowl ad and all — is that they're 6 percent alcohol by volume. Budweiser is advertised and labeled at 5 percent AbV. Bud Light is said to have 4.2 percent AbV.
- The Budweiser saga began in 1876, when the E. Anheuser Brewing Association of St. Louis, Missouri, introduced Budweiser Lager Beer. Founded in 1860 by Eberhard Anheuser, the company was renamed the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association in 1879, recognizing the contribution and leadership of then president Adolphus Busch.
