Since 1860, the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Soulard has been a bastion of St. Louis’ business and manufacturing clout. Having previously earned the nickname of “World’s Largest Brewer” the local business was acquired by Belgian-Brazilian giant, InBev, in an aggressive acquisition completed in 2008. Even so, the Brewery continues to be a favorite attraction for residents and visitors alike (an attachment solidified by generations of the Busch family, passionate beer barons and city boosters).
