Almost brings a happy tear to your eye.
Budweiser is hoping to regain market share by offering free beer. Apparently sales were down 9% last year and are down the same amount this year. To turn things around, Bud will host the “Budweiser National Happy Hour” offering free brews to customers at trendy bars and eateries TODAY.
The campaign began Monday, with the slogan “Grab Some Buds.” The hype culminates TODAY, with the “Happy Hour,” a bid by Bud to nudge folks to at least TRY a FREE BEER. The samples are for those 21 and up and range from 6 ounces to 12 ounces, depending on the state and local rules.
Bud also has plans to host a Facebook page that will offer people turning age 22 and up a free beer on their birthday.
