MERRIMACK, N.H. -- In celebration of "The King of Beers" and the local communities where it's brewed, the Budweiser Brewery Experience will host Budweiser's Backyard on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., for the local community.

The event is complimentary, and guests of all ages are invited to celebrate with food trucks featuring the food America loves most, live music and freshly brewed Budweiser.

Guests must RSVP for a tour at, and those ages 21 and older can enjoy free beer and food-pairing sample demonstrations. At 3 p.m., they can also take part in an exclusive and timeless Budweiser tradition, with a brewmaster-led tasting of fresh Budweiser before it leaves the brewery.

Guests can also taste and participate in a special toast at 2 p.m., to honor veterans with the newest Budweiser brew, the Budweiser Freedom Reserve Red Lager, which was specially brewed by Budweiser's own veterans and builds on Budweiser's long-standing support of the military.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization providing educational scholarships to military families.
