News: AB kicked off roof

Is it last call for the King of Beers?

That’s the question being asked near Wrigley Field as Anheuser-Busch and the owners of a building with a huge red and white Budweiser advertisement on the roof square off in a legal battle.

The new owner of the building covered the ad with a tarp, saying the beer maker didn’t pay its rent on time and defaulted on its lease. He wants to take legal possession of the part of the roof where the sign is.

Anheuser-Busch said it tried to pay but its check was sent back. The brewer contends it has exclusive rights to the roof through next February.

A Cook County Circuit Court judge Friday granted a temporary restraining order that means Anheuser-Busch can remove the tarp.
