History of Budweiser

The company, E. Anheuser & Company had its origins in a small brewery opened in St. Louis by George Schneider in 1852. Eberhard Anheuser began with soap and candle production but decided to start a brewery business in 1852 despite a total lack of experience. He soon took control of this faltering Bavarian brewery in 1860. And the following year Anheuser’s daughter married Adolphus Busch, a brewery supplier who became the driving force behind the brewery’s future success.

Adolphus Busch emigrated to St. Louis, Missouri from Germany in the 1850s. He immediately got into the brewing supply business and started collaborating with the Anheuser brewery.

In 1876, Adolphus Busch and his friend, local restaurant owner Carl Conrad developed a "Bohemian-style" lager in the United States, inspired after a trip to Bohemia, and produced it in their brewery in St. Louis, Missouri.

To help the creation of this brand Adolphus’s newly married wife Lilly Anheuser, assisted him in getting a job at her father Eberhard Anheuser’s Brewery, where in Adolphus used his uniquely focused mindset and amazing ability for business to help propagate the brand abroad and in the states.

In 1876 the company introduced a new, light-colored beer called Budweiser. In 1879 the company was incorporated, and the name E. Anheuser & Company was changed to Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association. By 1880, Busch was the president of the company.

In 2008, Anheuser-Busch sold outside the family for the first time. It was acquired by a Belgian group to create Anheuser-Busch InBev.
