Does Busch own Budweiser?

With a 45 percent market share in 2016, Anheuser-Busch, a wholly owned subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV, is the largest brewing corporation in the United States. It also operates under the names Budweiser, Stella Artois, Shock Top, and Leinenkugel's.

In August 2013, it was announced that SAB Miller would be taking over as a new parent company after InBev agreed to sell its 46 percent stake for $20 billion. The deal was completed on January 1, 2015.

Anheuser-Busch was founded by Louis Brandt and Eberhard Anheuser. They both came from Germany together with about 10 other people who wanted to bring American-style beer making back home. They all had money to invest but no experience so they hired a man named Adolphus "Ad" Joseph Busch who had worked at another German brewery before coming over to America to help set up this new business. He eventually became one of the five co-owners of the company along with Brandt, Anheuser, and two others.

After spending a year traveling around Europe looking at different breweries and drinking their beer, they decided that what they needed most was a machine to mass-produce bottles.

Who owns the Budweiser beer company now?

InBev Anheuser-Busch agreed to be bought by InBev for roughly $52 billion in July 2008. The newly created Anheuser-Busch InBev became the world's largest brewer once the takeover was completed in November.

The new ownership will be responsible for deciding what role, if any, Budweiser will play in the future marketing campaigns of InBev. Anheuser-Busch has maintained a strong presence in the craft brewing market with brands such as Bud Light and Shock Top.

Anheuser-Busch was founded in St. Louis in 1876 by Eberhard Anheuser and Carl Busch. They began selling beer out of the back of a wagon until they could build them a brewery. By 1904, the company had become one of the leading breweries in the country. Over time, it started making its own beer instead of buying it from other companies which led to it becoming known as the "Brewer of Many Beer Styles." In 1987, Anheuser-Busch opened a research center in Cambridge called the Institute for Brewing and Distilling. This center is now known as the Harvard University School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS).
