How old is your beer?

Anheuser-BuschSt. Louis (Est. 1852)
Like so many major beer corps, Anheuser-Busch traces its roots back to a soap manufacturer named Eberhard. In this case, we’re talking Eberhard Anheuser, who teamed up with his son-in-law Adolphus Busch to conquer the St. Louis beer market in the mid-1800s. Busch’s kid would steer the company through Prohibition by marketing a non-alcoholic “cereal beverage” called Bevo, and then the next Busch would make it through the Great Depression with the fancy new metal can. They went on to become the biggest brewer in Missouri, and, you know, the world.
