ST. LOUIS - Budweiser, a partner of the St. Louis Cardinals for more than 50 years, is honoring its hometown team's 2006 World Series Championship victory with a limited-edition Budweiser magnum and aluminum bottle.
As further recognition, Budweiser is donating $100,000 to the St. Louis Cardinals Care Foundation to benefit area youth through outreach programs and financial grants.
"Budweiser is a proud supporter of the Cardinals," said Randall Blackford, director, Budweiser, Anheuser-Busch, Inc., in a statement. "These attractive and distinguished bottles recognize their momentous victory in the new Busch Stadium. They are the perfect holiday gift for adult fans, and will be enjoyed as keepsakes for years to come."
The commemorative 46.5-ounce magnum bottle features the Cardinals 2006 World Series Champions logo on the front, with a summary of the World Series on the back label. The World Series magnum is sold individually in a red and blue box featuring the Cardinals and World Series Champions logos. The 16-ounce Budweiser aluminum bottle features the Cardinals 2006 World Series Champions logo and lists the years of each of the Cardinals 10 titles. The aluminum bottle is sold in 15-packs of specially labeled Budweiser cases featuring images of the Cardinals World Series bottles.
Both will be available in liquor, grocery, and convenience stores in the greater St. Louis metro area. Both bottles will be reintroduced in March, when they will be more widely available as the city gears up for the 2007 Major League baseball season.
