"Bitter Brew: The Rise and Fall of Anheuser-Busch..."­ by William Knoedelseder

“Bitter Brew deftly chronicles the contentious succession of kings in a uniquely American dynasty. You’ll never crack open a six again without thinking of this book.”
—John Sayles, Director of Eight Men Out and author of A Moment in the Sun

The creators of Budweiser and Michelob beers, the Anheuser-Busch company is one of the wealthiest, most colorful and enduring family dynasties in the history of American commerce. In Bitter Brew, critically acclaimed journalist William Knoedelseder tells the riveting, often scandalous saga of the rise and fall of the dysfunctional Busch family—an epic tale of prosperity, profligacy, hubris, and the dark consequences of success that spans three centuries, from the open salvos of the Civil War to the present day.

    We had talked briefly about Kraftig and I ran across this article, so I thought I would share! http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/article_7707f472-a767-545e-89d6-47191845b6e9.html#.VFzUJ5gbBEE.twitter

    Interesting Plus depressing! Seems the family had too much power over st louis but in fact had no power at all with shareholders.
