Bud banners removed from downtown Manitowoc


MANITOWOC (WKOW) – Sky-high Budweiser beer bottle banners on the side of three downtown grain silos are in the process of being removed in Manitowoc.

Anheuser-Busch sold the old malting plant last year to Riverland Ag Corp., which has until the end of the year to remove the banners that have been a highly-visible landmark for nearly 20 years.

Karen Suggitt snapped a photo of the Bud banners as crews worked to remove them.  Suggitt told WLUK-TV that she worked at the malting plant for 33 years and has a lot of memories.

Across the street from the plant is Bay Title and Abstract.  Terry Dimmick says his office will now be harder to find. Dimmick told people coming to his office to just aim for the beer bottles.
