They do, but this is from an older logo. Looks a bit like Clarendon,but not, or it could be a Bookman Bold, which I don't have. :help:

No match in my database. I would imagine that it is an exclusively licensed font. Many foundries do a big business with large corporations supplying them with fonts no one else has.

Thanks, Bobby, I was affraid of that. This signs has to be hand lettered anyway, but I was hoping to make a plotter pattern. I could probably modify Clarendon to match it, or make a pattern the analog way. I don't even know if my projector still works.

Not only does Anheuser-Busch have their own in house advertising dept., many of their regional distribution centers have vinyl cutters and large format printers as well.

Prices will start in the ballpark of several grand. A complex type makeover with lots of testing (such as results on ink flow, dot gain, etc.) can run tens of thousands or even more. Some major newspapers spend a fortune for unique type families.

I have a friend who works in the signs department at the local distributor here. Ben E. Keith, That's how I snagged this job. He also does hand lettering, but is too busy, so refered them to me.

Sign Solutions: Thanks! send it over, I'll clean it up. Don't need the script.
