A-B kicks off beer giveaway as US nears vaccination goal

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Anheuser-Busch is preparing to open its taps as the U.S. inches closer to a vaccine milestone.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Budweiser brewer promised last month that once 70% of American adults are at least partially vaccinated against COVID-19, it would buy a beer for anyone 21 or older.

But the company went ahead anyway and cracked open its online redemption portal at 11 a.m. Friday for the July 4 weekend.
