Fact of the Day  


More Information  

The American heritage of Budweiser beings in St. Louis, Missouri. Eberhard Anheuser, who first made household products like soaps, helped out a local brewery of Bavarian beers. His help only aided the brewery for a period of time. When it was going under, Anheuser and a friend became the proprietors.
Adolphus Busch made it to the states from Germany in 1857. Busch married Eberhard Anheuser's daughter Lily in St. Louis. Four years after the marriage (1865), the Anheuser-Busch merger began; Busch was only 26 at the time.
Busch and a pal travelled to Bohemia (Czech Republic) and decided to introduce a beer similar to the local brews he'd tried. This was a pretty smart move, considering that when King Premys II Otakar founded the city of Budweis in 1245, it started brewing what became known as the Beer of Kings.
Since then, the rights to the Budweis name have been disputed. German beer regulations do not consider the American giant an actual Budweiser due to the rice content. Other brewers still call their beer Budweiser to this day.
