New Budweiser campaign targets under-30 crowd

NEW YORK Anheuser-Busch reportedly is revitalizing its Budweiser brand by offering free beer with a "Budweiser National Happy Hour" on Sept. 29.

Targeting trendy bars and eateries, the brewer will offer free 6-oz. to 12-oz. samples for those ages 21 years and older. The event is part of Anheuser-Busch's new campaign, "Grab Some Buds." Its goal is to increase brand loyalty for Budweiser, which has ignored the under-30 demographic that it should be targeting, according to published reports.

Budweiser made its debut in 1876.
