It might be hard to believe, but Anheuser-Busch roots date all the way back into the mid-1800s.

According to the beer company, it got its start with Immigrant brewers who settled in St. Lewis. They introduced a new type of beer to the U.S. It was a lighter, crisper lager that was more difficult to brew.  

In 1843 Edward Anheuser took over a Bavarian brewery and changed the name to E. Anheuser & Co.

I know, you're asking, where's the Busch in that new name.  Well, that's a little later in our story.

Adolphus Busch met Edward Anheuser. Eventually, he was introduced to Anheuser's daughter Lily.  Adolphus eventually started working for his father-in-law... and well, the rest, as they say is history.
