This is the story of the famous Budweiser name from the brewers of the "Original Czech Premium Lager":
"The name of the brewery and the beer relates to the place of its origin – the town of České Budějovice. Since the 14th century the official name of this city was Budweis. Only in 1918 was the name changed into the Czech name of České Budějovice. However, the indication Budweis is today the official translation of the name of the city into many foreign languages. The tradition of the production of beer in České Budějovice began in 1265 when the Czech King, Přemysl Otakar II. chartered the brewing rights for the town. Over the following centuries, České Budějovice produced high quality beer which, due to it being distinguished from similar products from other areas, was indicated as “Budweiser Bier” (i.e. beer from České Budějovice). In 1895 the Czech Share Brewery – the legal predecessor of the current brewery Budweiser Budvar officially adopted the indication of the product by the location of its origin and continued in the long term tradition of the production of beer in České Budějovice. From the very beginning of its production activities, the brewery has used in its products the word “Budweiser” and during its trading activity started to register this name as a registered trademark."
