    (September 27, 1806-May 2, 1880)
    Purchased The Bavarian Brewery (St. Louis, Missouri) and renamed it E. Anheuser & Company
    Partnered with his son-in-law, Adolphus Busch, to form Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association
    Brewer of Budweiser, which was named after the Bohemian town Ceske Budejovice (Budweis in German)
    Company expanded to own Budweiser, Busch, Michelob, O'Doul's, Natural, Bacardi Silver, Tequiza and Doc's Hard Lemon
    The name 'Eberhard' sounds dirty.
    His business partner, Adolphus Busch, was banging his daughter.
    Adolphus Busch and his brother married both of Eberhard Anheuser's daughters on the same day (March 7, 1861).
    His Budweiser product is the self-proclaimed 'King of Beers.'
    He went from making girly things like soap and candles, to manly things like beer.
    Fifteen years after he died, the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association almost lost the rights to use the name 'Budweiser.' A Czech company named Budweiser Burgerbrau took Anheuser-Busch to court for using the name and for slightly ripping off their slogan, 'The Beer of Kings.'
    He bought the failing Bavarian Brewery and posthumously turned it into a world famous corporation.
    Today, 100 million barrels of his beer is brewed annually.
    The leadership of the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association is still being passed down in the family.
