St. Louis landmark gets a makeover

St Louis, MO (KFVS) - A well-known St. Louis landmark is getting a makeover beginning today.

The 150-foot-long Budweiser sign at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery is coming down today to be restored.

This will be the first time the sign has been taken down since it was first installed in 1979.

The brewery is reportedly spending half a million dollars to upgrade the sign so it will shine brighter with new LED light technology.

The process of replacing the sign is estimated to take about five weeks.
