Budweiser Debuts Glorious 2021 Holiday Cans

by Matthew Memrick

Budweiser lovers can pick up a special memorable holiday can series that’s so cool, you won’t be telling your friend to hold your beer.

I mean, it’s OK if you do, but chances are you won’t be getting that beer can back. 

But in the spirit of Christmas and giving, you might as well give a friend a 12-pack. Or maybe you want to swap out somebody’s Christmas stocking coal with a can or two.

For only the second year, the brewer is making cans based on its traditional Budweiser Holiday Steins.

The limited-edition cans come in four classic designs. Three come with the famous Budweiser Clydesdales, which were introduced in 1933 to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition. The return of the fan-favorite Dalmatian and last year’s” Pupweiser” contest winner round out the particular cans.

To top it off, they come in a unique Christmas plaid box design.

Want more Budweiser swag to go along with the particular cans? The brewer’s website sells more holiday stuff like Budweiser x Shinesty Holiday Pajamas. There’s also a Budweiser Can Repeat Sweater and a 2020 Budweiser Clydesdale Holiday Stein.

‘Pupweiser’ Contest Now Open

This year’s 2020 Pupweiser Contest winner named Wilson, a Saint Bernard from Ohio. What a good boy to feature!

St. Louis TV station WKRC reported that Wilson and his owner, Kelsey Dempsey, recently accepted an invite to St. Louis for a special tour of Anheuser-Busch. They also got to meet the famous Clydesdales. Wilson won from a pool of 100,000 doggies.

Weeks earlier, Dempsey told the TV station that she didn’t think they’d win, but then she got the call.

“I jumped up on the couch,” she said before yelling,” ‘It’s really happening! We won!’”

Think your pooch can best Wilson for next year’s can? Next year’s “Pupweiser” contest starts on Nov. 16 and goes until Dec. 15. You can enter your good boy by commenting on Budweiser’s Facebook post. Don’t forget to send a picture of your dog. The #PupweiserContest contest has an appropriate hashtag, too. There you go.

Want another good reason to buy these particular holiday cans and enter the contest? The beermaker will donate a buck for every entry up to $25,000 to the ASPCA. That nonprofit organization works to prevent animal cruelty.

Want to put your pup on a can, win or lose anyway? The Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot-Ledger reported that you can.

If you scan the QR code on Wilson’s can or go here, you can upload your dog’s photo. 

The website ShopBeerGear will make the beer can labels available for purchase later this week for $15. But, of course, supplies are limited.
