Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc.

  • Corporate body
  • 1852-

Anheuser-Busch began when Eberhard Anheuser, a German immigrant to St. Louis who trained as a soap manufacturer, became part owner of the Bavarian Brewery in 1852. He changed the name of the company to E. Anheuser & Co. in 1860 after buying out the other investors. Adolphus Busch joined the company around 1861, after he married Eberhard's daughter Lily. In 1876, Adolphus and a friend, Carl Conrad, created an American-style lager beer they coined "Budweiser." Budweiser was so successful that it became the company's flagship brand. The company was renamed the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association in 1879 in recognition of Adolphus' efforts.

The company survived the period of Prohibition in America (between January 16, 1920 and April 7, 1933) by diversifying and marketing more than 25 alcohol-free products including sodas, truck bodies, and ice cream. By 1957, Anheuser-Busch became the leading brewer in the United States. In 2008, Anheuser-Busch combined with InBev to become Anheuser-Busch InBev. Today, Anheuser-Busch InBev is the world's largest brewer and one of the top 5 consumer goods companies in the world. Condensed from:
