About the Brewery
In 1860, William D’Oench and Eberhard Anheuser purchased the Bavarian Brewery in St. Louis, Missouri. They would promptly change the name to E. Anheuser & Co. A year later, Adolphus Busch would marry Lilly Anheuser (who was Eberhard’s daughter) and in 1869, Adolphus Busch would purchase D’Oench’s share of the company. In 1879, the duo would change the name to Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association, and after Eberhard’s passing in 1880 Adolphus would become president.
Anheuser-Busch focused on pasteurizing their beer to prolong shelf life, and they began to ship their beer across the nation in refrigerated rail cars. Adolphus died in 1913 and his son August Anheuser Busch, Sr. would take over. During prohibition the company focused on selling brewer’s yeast, malt extract, ice cream and Bevo (their near beer brand.) August also built three upscale restaurants in the city.
The company successfully rode out prohibition and by 1957 they were the largest brewer in the United States. Anhesuer-Busch still controls a large majority of the US market and owns the following brands (Budweiser, Bud Light, Busch, Estrella Jalisco, Hoegaarden, Landshark, Michelob Ultra, Natural Light, Patagonia Cerveza, Presidente, Shock Top and Stella Artois.
They also have their Brewer’s Collective, which is their craft beer business unit. They represent the following brands (10 Barrel Brewing Co., Breckenridge Brewery, Blue Point Brewing, Devils Backbone, Elysian Brewing, Golden Road Brewing, Four Peaks Brewing Co., Goose Island, Karbach, Platform Beer Co., Wicked Weed Brewing, Veza Sur Brewing, Virtue Cider, maha organic hard seltzer and LQD.)
While the company is based in St. Louis, they also have breweries in the following cities- Baldwinsville, NY, Cartersville, GA, Columbus, OH, Los Angeles, CA, Newark, NJ, Williamsburg, VA, Fairfield, CA, Fort Collins, CO, Houston, TX, Jacksonville, FL and Merrimack, NH.
Tobin’s Review 4 out of 5
Budweiser Copper Lager really doesn’t have any head. The beer has sweet aromas with a light caramel smell. The beer tasted like a light Amber, with a light hint of sweetness. Overall this is a surprisingly good beer!
