If you’re ordering a beer in the U.K., make sure to ask for the right Budweiser.
A British court has ruled that both the well-known American beer and the lesser-known Czech beer of the same name can use the name “Budweiser,” according to a Reuters report.
The ruling marks the latest chapter in a decades-long spat between Anheuser-Busch, now a part of Belgian beer giant InBev, and Czech brewer Budejovicky Budvar.
Despite the name confusion, the court ruled that customers know the difference.
"United Kingdom consumers are well aware of the difference between Budvar's beers and those of Anheuser-Busch, since their tastes, prices and get-ups have always been different," the court said, according to Reuters.
