Budweiser has posted one of their ads for the Super Bowl that speaks to the story of how the beer company was founded by immigrants. NPR's The Salt breaks down some of the truths and myths from the ad:
First, let's start with a little historical nitpicking with that ad. Historian Maureen Ogle, author of Ambitious Brew: The Story of American Beer, says that when Busch arrived in St. Louis, Mo., he didn't just run into Eberhard Anheuser — he married his daughter and took over the small brewery that Anheuser, a prosperous soap-maker, had acquired.
Also, neither Anheuser nor Busch was the source of the original Budweiser. Ogle says the Bud brand was started by one of Busch's friends, Carl Conrad. Busch eventually bought Budweiser from Conrad — but that happened in the 1880s, long after he'd already become a successful brewer.
Seems like decent embellishment for an ad. Hopefully this will make some sense to those who have decided in favor of Trump's recent immigration policies.
