Welcome to the Budweiser Gifts and Collectibles Website!
Did you know Budweiser is a German term referring to a person from the city of Budweis?
Or that beer from Budweis has been made for over 800 years?
Or that there are 3 different companies that make Budweiser beer?
Here is the 'Budweiser' sold in Europe.
The 'Budweiser' sold in the US is sold in Europe under the name 'Anheuser-Busch B'.
Americans are used to seeing Anheuser-Busch commercials and advertisements for Budweiser beer. But because other companies make Budweiser beer around the world, some have been in existence even longer than Anheuser-Busch, they have the rights to use the Budweiser name to sell beer.
In fact, Anheuser-Busch has no rights to the Budweiser name at all in many countries. The Budweiser beer found in stores and restaurants is made by other companies!
That interesting trivia can make collecting Budweiser collectibles surprisingly interesting.
In this website we are not just interested in Anheuser-Busch collectibles, but collectibles and products from any company using the name 'Budweiser'.
So although Budweiser is often associated with Anheuser-Busch in the US, the name and the beer predate the company by hundreds and hundreds of years.
Here you will find an ever evolving catalog and to products and merchandise called Budweider, made possible with our official affiliation with e*Bay, Amazon, and other merchants.
Everything from beer steins and mugs to posterss and shirts to signs and even golf bags.

Need a gift idea for your favorite Budweiser fan?
Consider these tempting and unique ideas:
- A Clydesdale light. These are a lot of fun, especially if you have a game room or man cave.A recent story said Anheuser-Busch was trying to flex its superior size and through lawsuits around the world try to take over the Budweiser name. However, Budvar from what is now the Czech Republic had won 88 times during the last decade, about 80 percent of all disputes, and now held exclusive rights to the Budweiser name in 68 countries.
Interestingly, in Britain both companies can use the Budweiser name. One consumer advocate said there is no confusion as drinkers know the difference: Budvar is "full bodied taste" and Anheuser-Busch is only "clean taste."
Prediction: Someday Anheuser-Busch will pony up enough money to buy out all the other Budweiser beers. Maybe they've tried and a ransom is being requested!
Another fun fact: Anheuser-Busch is no longer an American company. It was sold a few years ago to InBev from Belgium. Now the company is known as AB InBev. St. Louis based Anheuser-Busch is just a subsidiary.
Budweiser from Budweis has been called The Beer of Kings for hundreds of years. More recently America has seen a twist, with Anheuser-Busch calling its beer The King of Beers.
Either way, call it what you want, the Budweiser name has prompted the creation of a seemingly endless stream of products. Bottoms up!
