Anheuser Busch was founded in Saint Louis, MO in the 1860's by Eberhard Anheuser. The brewery was run by the Busch family for generations until 2008, when it was sold to, Belgium-based InBev. The company is now known as Anheuser-Busch InBev. It is the largest brewer in the world. It combined the producer of Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, Leffe and Beck's, Bass, Labatt and Brahma with Anheuser Busch's lineup of Budweiser and Michelob.
Anheuser Busch has 12 breweries in the U.S. and 18 in other countries. The U.S. headquarters of Anheuser Busch is in Saint Louis, MO. The brewing facility in Colorado is located northeast of Fort Collins near I-25.
Anheuser Busch was the first brewery to use pasteurization to keep beer fresh, as well as refrigerated railroad cars. They also were the first to bottle beers extensively.
Must try Beers!
Budweiser - The original and self-proclaimed king of beers. It was introduced in 1876, after Adolphus Busch toured Europe looking for new brewing methods. He came across a popular Bohemian lager brewed in Budweis in the Czech Republic.
Beer Style: American Lager
Budweiser American Ale - Budweiser's take on an amber ale, American Ale combines caramel malted barley from America's heartland and Cascade hopes from the Pacific Northwest. The malt gives it a rich, amber color and sweet malt character. The hops gives it a citrus aroma.
Beer style: Amber Ale
Chelada - Many countries have their custom drink creations. In Mexico and Central/South America, some folks mix light beer with Clamato. Pre-mixing the two is what Budweiser is doing here.
It's a mix of Budweiser and Clamato, known as the Chelada. If you like tomato juice, clams and beer, give this one a shot, otherwise steer clear. Try mixing up your own batch sometime.
