On the heels of the company’s announcement that the Budweiser logo will have a patriotic replacement this summer, fans are pointing out one glaring problem.

Budweiser cans and bottles will sport “America” in place of the brand’s name in a new marketing campaign announced Tuesday.

But, despite the patriotic changes, one aspect of the Missouri-born beer company cannot be ignored. Anheuser-Busch, based in St. Louis, merged in 2008 with another brewer and became Belgian-Brazilian company Anheuser-Busch InBev, based in… Belgium.

This fact was not lost on social media users, who reacted in posts ranging from humor to confusion.

An Anheuser-Busch spokesman told CNNMoney that Budweiser beer is still American. “All Budweiser served in the U.S. is brewed in the U.S.,” said the spokesman. “This includes the beer inside all of the ‘America’ cans and bottles. This ‘America’ packaging will not be available outside the U.S.”
