Anheuser-Busch created the world famous Budweiser and Michelob beer brands and are one of the most colorful, enduring and wealthiest family dynasties in American commerce history. In Bitter Brew ($19) William Knoedelseder, a journalist who has won much critical acclaim tells the riveting and often scandalous tale of the rise and the fall of the highly dysfunctional family called Busch. This is an epic tale involving prosperity, hubris, profligacy and the subsequent dark consequences that come from success spanning three centuries. Their story stretches from the Civil War’s opening salvos up to the present day.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
