Bud meets Bud (again)

I don't usually run for photos (I mostly snap buildings, after all), but I had to catch this Budweiser truck in front of the old brewery before the light turned. Why? Because for a period during the 1880s, the brewery was known as the "Budweiser Brewing Company." Of course, the St. Lunatics who run Anheuser-Busch brought suit (that's kind of their thing), and since they got their trademark in six years before the Brooklyn owner, he relented and renamed the place the Nassau Brewing Company (complete story here, courtesy of NY Food Museum).
