Budweiser is a pale lager produced by Anheuser–Busch since 1876 in St. Louis, Missouri. It has grown to become one of the highest selling beers in the US, and is available in over 80 markets worldwide—though, due to a trademark dispute, cannot necessarily do so under the Budweiser name. It’s made with up to 30% rice in addition to hops and barley malt. Produced in breweries around the world, it’s a filtered beer available in draught or packaged forms. Adolphus Busch left Germany for the US in 1857. He settled in St. Louis, MO, where he established his own brewing supply house. There he met and married Lilly Anheuser. Lilly’s father, Eberhard Anheuser – another German – owned a small brewery that had been making lager beer for some time. In 1864, he partnered with his father in-law to form what would eventually become the Anheuser-Busch Company.
