Budweiser Celebrates America’s Greatest Treasures with National Park Foundation, Brings Partnership to Life with Patriotic Packaging


America’s Macro Beer Provides Macro Support to the National Park Foundation, Commissions 13th Witness to Unveil New Summer Packaging Featuring Statue of Liberty

ST. LOUIS (April 22, 2015) – Today, on Earth Day, Budweiser announced its continued support and commitment to the environment through a partnership with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official charity of America’s national parks, for the Find Your Park movement. The multi-million dollar partnership raises awareness about national parks and the centennial milestone of the National Park Service in 2016. In celebration, Budweiser is rolling out limited-edition patriotic packaging featuring the iconic silhouette of Lady Liberty.

Budweiser commissioned famed city streetscape and mobile photographer 13th Witness to unveil this packaging with compelling visual content that captures Budweiser’s spirit for the summer.

“We want to encourage a new generation of beer drinkers to get out there and see what America is made of,” said Brian Perkins, vice president, Budweiser. “And where better than in America’s national parks? It’s fitting for Budweiser—a big, bold brand—to team up with a pioneering partner like NPF. We are looking to draw attention to these parks with our eye-catching packaging … as well as a pretty epic surprise concert this summer.”

Budweiser will bring monumental and surprising moments to the national parks through a summer music program that celebrates the brand’s pledge to safeguard these breathtaking landscapes and places of cultural and historical importance, and inspire generations of national parks enthusiasts. To kick off the partnership, Budweiser launched a day of service in various parks throughout New York City on April 21 to unite a sense of duty and responsibility for a new America – made better.

“Budweiser is an American brand with a steadfast commitment to our nation,” said Dan Wenk, interim president of the National Park Foundation. “With their generous, multi-faceted support of our Find Your Park movement, we will ensure that these special places are loved and protected well beyond the next 100 years.”

Budweiser’s new Statue of Liberty summer packaging highlights the partnership with NPF and marks its commitment to protect our country’s beloved historical, cultural, natural and urban parks. The Lady Liberty packs will be available in 8-, 12-, 16- and 25-ounce cans and in a 16-ounce aluminum bottle.

“America’s national parks are some of the most beautiful places on earth,” said Perkins. “We want to recognize that sense of scenery. That’s why we’ve brought one of the most iconic, inspiring visuals in the world to beer drinkers. That’s why we’ve commissioned an exciting Instagrammer to help unveil the partnership. And, most importantly, that’s why we’ve joined NPF to drive more young adults to see these sights for themselves.”

Denim Made Of Beer Bottles

To celebrate Earth Day — which, hey, Happy Earth Day — the clever folks at Bonobos have launched denim that's not just recycled, but recycled from... beer bottles. We've covered the brand's great denim before, and this time, they've worked with the craftsman down at Cone Denim in North Carolina to create new jeans that are, technically speaking, comprised of 23 percent synthetic, recycled, beer-bottle yarn. The rest is cotton yarn, and there's no need to worry about Heineken's green glass rubbing against your knees. Instead, they sourced plastic beer bottles — those terrible things you get at concerts, sports venues, and other outdoor events where sandals may be involved — to create this new material. The result: A way to help the environment, look nice, and actually not feel lame while doing so.

Organic Cocktails for a Boozy Earth Day

Earth Day is overdue for rebranding. As tornadoes make junk drawers out of our heartland cities, hydraulic fracking imports earthquakes to faultless places like Youngstown and Little Rock, and the rising oceans swallow island nations whole and threaten to make my beloved peninsular metropolis a densely-packed archipelago, a day for saving the world is more essential than ever. Yet many Americans know April 22 only as the day the little animated peacock turns green at the bottom of our HDTV screens.
