Budweiser is a German adjective describing something or someone from the city of České Budějovice (German: Budweis) in Southern Bohemia, Czech Republic.
Beer brewing in České Budějovice (or Budweis) dates back to the 13th century.[1] A few hundred years later, two breweries were founded in the city that made beer which they called "Budweiser," both being beers from the city of České Budějovice (Budweis), Czech Republic. In 1876, the US brewer Anheuser-Busch began making a beer which it also called "Budweiser". This led in 1907 to the "Budweiser trademark dispute" between beer companies claiming trademarks rights to the name "Budweiser".[2]
The three companies are:
* Budweiser Bier Bürgerbräu, founded 1795 by German-speaking citizens of České Budějovice, which began exporting Budweiser Bier to the US in 1875. The company was expropriated by the state in 1945, when they changed the name of the company. However, the company reacquired the old naming rights in the 1990s after the fall of communism in Czechoslovakia.
* Budweiser (Anheuser-Busch), made by Anheuser-Busch in the United States, was first marketed in 1876 as "Budweiser" in the United States and Canada.
* Budweiser Budvar, a brewery founded in 1895 by Czech-speaking citizens of České Budějovice.
[edit]Dispute over right to use the name
Anheuser-Busch cites prior registration of the trademark in the US and battles for the right to use it worldwide in many legal disputes against the Europe-based companies in several countries.[2] The Europeans wish to maintain or regain their right to market their beer under their traditional trademark. Bürgerbräu has marketed its beer as Budweiser Biersince 1876, while Budvar has marketed its product this way since 1895. The two companies in České Budějovice point out that Budweiser is not a generic name, but refers to a beer actually made in the city.

... negotiations and go to court on a country-by-country basis to assert its rights to the Budweiser name? Anheuser-Busch’s decision was correct because they already succeeded in European market by selling Budweiser beer under the brand name “Bud”. But after failure in Czech, they decided to do on country-by-country basis and won cases in Ireland, Portugal, Sweden and six other countries. They were also able to pull out $145 million from a joint venture in Vietnam because they registered the Budweiser name before Budvar. 3.

Budweiser

...1. Assess Anheuser-Busch’s effort to reach an agreement with the Czechs to invest in Budvar. What, if anything, should the American company have done differently? Anheuser – Busch, the world’s largest brewing company, has had difficulty in using its Budweiser brand name while marketing beer in every country of the world. The underlying reason is its brand name – “Budweiser” and the history rooted within that name. First of all, Budweiser represents the person from the Bohemian town of Budweis of the 14th century Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1911, it signed an agreement with Budvar – the brewery company established in Budweis, producing its beer under the same Budweiser name. According to it, Budvar would market its beer in continental Europe, whereas Anheuser – Busch would market in United States and in Latin America. Anheuser – Busch began to market its beer in European countries under the “Bud” brand name. Also it won the case which allowed it to sell its beer in Britain under the same “Budweiser” name alongside the Czech brew. In Czechoslovakia, the communist rule ended in 1989, resulting in privatization of many breweries and other government-owned enterprises. Anheuser-Busch wanted to get the opportunity in 1993 by investing in the Budvar and resolving the trademark issue. The Czech response was negative. Because Czechs consider Budweiser as something more than a brand name, a source of their own national pride with its geographic name. Also they...

Marketing Plan for Budweiser

...Marketing Plan for Budweiser 2012 Submitted by: Submitted to: August 17, 2012 Budweiser Executive Summary The current business environment for a piece of the beer industry market is very competitive. Breweries must compete against other breweries, both large and small to remain a viable player in the sale of their beer. Budweiser is a product produced by Anheuser-Busch, an American brewery founded in St. Louis in the mid 1800’s. The intention of the following marketing plan is to not only continue to add to the legacy of Budweiser, but to re-energize the consumer’s appetite for Budweiser and increase the market share of the product. The formula for Budweiser is over 130 years old. The recipe has a unique blend of barley malt, brewer’s rice, yeast, water, and hops. These same five ingredients are what still goes into Budweiser today. We will promote how after 130 years the tried and true tradition of these five ingredients are the building blocks that give Budweiser its uncompromised flavor. In addition to the five ingredients, the seven steps in brewing Budweiser remain the same today. The seven steps are milling, mashing, straining, the brewkettle, primary fermentation, beechwood aging, and finishing (Budweiser Anheuser-Busch). Using the beechwood aging process allows more interaction between the beer and the yeast. This is the unique formulation that has propelled Budweiser into the staple beer...

...DEFINITION -Installation art sits right on that curious border between architecture, art and interior design – part physical experiment, part personal expression and part designed space. These works of installation artists show the untapped potential of spatial experience not often seen in more purely functional (or purely artistic) works of design. -Installation art describes an artistic genre of three-dimensional works that are often site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space. Generally, the term is applied to interior spaces, whereas exterior interventions are often called Land art; however, the boundaries between these terms overlap. - Type of modern art in which the artist uses, as part of the composition, the specific setting (such as walls, floor, lights, and fittings) along with various materials. Typically the chosen materials more or less fill the space, and the viewer is often able to move around or otherwise interact with the work, so that they become part of that work in that specific moment in time.  BRIEF AND HISTORY Installation art can be either temporary or permanent. Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces. The genre incorporates a broad range of everyday and natural materials, which are often chosen for their "evocative" qualities, as well as new media such as video, sound, performance, immersive virtual reality and the internet...

...Definitions A definition is a statement that gives the meaning of a concept. For simple and relatively concrete concepts such as ‘Table’ we can understand them without definitions by simply seeing them. But most concepts are abstract and complex and to understand them definitions are important tool of knowledge. A definition does the following functions: a. It clarifies the boundaries of a concept. b. It clarifies the relationships among concepts. c. It clarifies the referents of the concepts. Vagueness and Ambiguity A term is ‘vague’ means it is hazy obscure and imprecise for example the words love, happiness, rich or poor are vague. We can rarely tell whether they apply to a given situation or not. How rich one has to be in order to be called rich? An ‘ambiguous expression’ is one that can be interpreted as having more than one clearly distinct meaning in a given context for example: words such as proper, light, critical, bank can be used ambiguously. If one were to describe an action as proper, does this mean proper in moral sense or proper in the sense of being socially acceptable? The difference between ambiguity and vagueness is that vague terminology allows for a relatively continuous range of interpretations, where as ambiguous terminology allows for multiple discrete interpretations. A vague expression creates a blur of meaning where as ambiguous expression mixes up otherwise clear meanings. Definitions and their purposes Definition is a...

...Kayda Carpenter English 1121 Professor Herrin Definition Essay April 25th, 2013 A Trend Popular at Coon Rapids High School I grew up right here in Coon Rapids, Minnesota and attended Coon Rapids High School. At CRHS, starting out freshman year the right thing to do was dress to impress; it was especially exciting to dress up on game/competition days. Dressing up and looking cute was only fun for a little while, pretty soon it just got old. I came from a middle school where some of my friends went to high school with me but most of them went to a completely different high school. My friends I knew from middle school all started meeting new friends, and now I had to, too. These were the people I was going to spend the next four years with; I desperately wanted them to like me. As if this aspect isn’t bad enough, when you’re moving up from middle school to high school, you go from being the oldest in the school to being the youngest. The young girls obviously want to impress the older guys! In high school I started to wear more make-up, I started buying name brand clothing, I wanted to fit in and all the girls seemed like we were competing. On days that you didn’t look your best, people noticed, or they just didn’t notice you at all. Joining a sport or club was the next important thing; personally I joined the dance team, and remained on it all four years of high school. We danced at pep fests, basketball games, soccer games, football games, we attended dance shows...

Budweiser Commercial Reveiw

...This commercial is to promote Budweiser to people who drink beer and since everyone is watching the Super Bowl it is a good time to air it. The super bowl is known for its beer commercials and Budweiser did a good job at changing the mood and connecting with not only men, but women with the touching story. The heart-warming story and song that is being played gives a more intense/emotion view to the people who watch the commercial. This commercial is different because it portrays a different type of message. The message of "Brotherhood," nothing having to do with beer but the sole purpose was to raise a horse so that he could become a Budweiser Clydesdale. Therefore the audience is the drinkers of beer which are mainly men, and they like to drink with their guys. That is what this ad was intended for to make a connection with Brotherhood. It is being said this way because; everyone that drinks Budweiser knows that their mascot is the Clydesdale horse. That’s why the used the horse in the ad. The song Landslide by Fleetwood Mac was a good song because it talks about like the artist life and triumphs they've been through and in the ad the horse and trainer had been something together. The reasoning behind the Budweiser brotherhood super bowl commercial, is to show that Budweiser is a family style company and does have a heart. In the commercial you see a trainer raising a horse for the Budweiser company. Through the commercial the trainer and horse develop a close bond...

...-being. According to Sociology Lecturer Stefania Kalogeraki, an approach of defining and measuring children’s well-being can be done the objective or the subjective way. The former refers to the socio-economic objective realities (such as levels of poverty, health, and safety etc.) that indirectly measure children’s quality of life, whereas subjective well-being derives from direct measures of individuals’ self-reports about happiness, satisfaction, and fulfillment (49). When children experience problems that negatively impact their well-being, their health conditions along with their overall life satisfaction will diminish. Children dealing with issues that harm their well-being are more prone to potentially facing poverty as they reach adulthood. If children are not dealing with constant traumatic events that affect their well-being then they would undoubtedly be happier individuals throughout their lifetime. Children should grow up without having to worry about everything because that should be the main concern of their parents. The extent of a child’s worries should be finishing homework and chores, deciding upon close friendships and the considerations of the upcoming weekend events. Children should not have to go through the emotional and physical stresses regarding whether or not they will have a constant meal on the table or if they will survive due to declining health. A more pragmatic definition of the term was given by authors Tom Rath and Jim Harter...

Budweiser

...State of the Industry The beverage industry is a large part of the U.S. economy representing $354.2B in sales. Of this market, approximately 60% of sales come from alcoholic beverages, with beer making up 49% of this and the remainder going to liquor (37%), and wine (15%). Despite the strong market share for beer in the U.S., sales are sliding. Since 1999, the market share for beer has decreased from 56% to below 50%. Wine sales have been flat, so consumers are beginning to switch from drinking beer to drinking liquor. There appears to be a general shift in preference among consumers to prefer other types of alcoholic beverages to beer. In addition to losing sales to a different beverage option, Budweiser is losing market share in the U.S. beer market. At its peak in 1988, Budweiser sold 50 million barrels. In 2013, consumption was down to 16 million barrels and market share had decreased from 14.4% to 7.6% in ten years. Part of this is due to cannibalization of sales from other Budweiser products, such as Bud Light. This shows a macro change in consumer preferences, favoring options with fewer calories to help combat weight-gain. Another big reason for the decrease in sales is due to consumers switching to the craft beer market. In 2015 sales for craft breweries were estimated at 24.5 million barrels (a 13% increase since 2014) and dollar-sales were just over $22 billion (a 16% increase from 2014). These sales have given the craft brewery industry a 21% share of the...
