NC Commission Rejects Bud Light Naming Rights Deal

Raleigh’s new outdoor amphitheater won’t be named after Bud Light.

The N.C. Alcohol and Beverage Control Commission on Thursday rejected an exemption to state law that would have allowed Raleigh to name its 5,000-seat concert venue after the beer, a proposal that would have brought the city $1.5 million over five years.
