Good Luck.
One of the word's most famous beer companies [is / are] changing the name of its best-selling beer. The company is Anheuser-Busch (AB), which is the USA's largest maker [for / of] beer. It is going to change [a / the] name of its Budweiser beer to 'America'. The name change will be only [from / for] six months, between May 23 and November. A [company / companies] spokesperson said the name change is to [try / trial] and increase sales. Budweiser [used / uses] to be the USA's most popular beer but it has been losing market [share / sharing] for over 25 years. The word 'America' will replace the word 'Budweiser' on its [cans / canned] . It will also use the same font that AB uses for Budweiser. In addition, the [initial / initials] "AB" will be replaced by "US".

The new name and labeling is [party / part] of Budweiser’s summer-long campaign called "America is in Your Hands". There are [most / many] important national days [daring / during] the campaign period, starting with the Memorial Day weekend [in / on] May 30 and ending with the [presidential / president] elections in November. In [between / among] are the summer Olympics and Labor Day. The company wants Americans to feel [pride / proud] of America – both the company and the beer. Budweiser's vice president Ricardo Marques said: "Budweiser has always [strived / starved] to embody America in a bottle, and we're honoured to [salute / state] this great nation, where our beer has been passionately [brewing / brewed] for the past 140 years."
