Budweiser's Statue of Liberty packaging will be available in the US for a limited time

The US arm of Anheuser-Busch InBev has announced a "multi-million dollar" partnership with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official charity of national parks in the country, and its Budweiser brand.

The new agreement focuses on raising awareness about national parks in the US, leading up to the centenary celebrations of the NPF in 2016. To mark the new initiative, Anheuser-Busch plans to roll out limited edition packaging for Budweiser in the country, featuring the silhouette of the Statue of Liberty, designed in partnership with photographer 13(th) Witness.

The company is also planning a programme of summer music events in national parks, launching the partnership with a day of service in various parks throughout New York City on Tuesday (21 April).

"We want to encourage a new generation of beer drinkers to get out there and see what America is made of," said Brian Perkins, vice-president, Budweiser.

The Lady Liberty Budweiser packs will be available in 8-, 12-, 16- and 25-oz cans, and in a 16oz aluminium bottle.
