The Week contest: New beer name
Last week's question: Budweiser is renaming its beer "America" until Nov. 8, to capitalize on a surge of patriotism for the Summer Olympics, national holidays like July 4, and the presidential election. If you were running a rival beer company and wanted to choose an equally manipulative new name for your alcoholic beverage, what would it be?
