Hey Beer Man!

.
Budweiser rules this town, as illustrated by these shots at Busch (as in Anheuser-Busch) Stadium during a Cardinals baseball game. Like the sign on the bottom says, Genuine St. Louis Since 1876. Except it's not anymore, not since AB sold out to the Belgian-Brazilian megabrewer Inbev, resulting in hundreds of local layoffs. Budweiser is pretty bland, anyway, IMHO.

Very good beer photos. Stuttgart is characterised by two breweries - Stuttgarter Hofbräu and Dinkelacker-Schwabenbräu. Sometimes it smells of mash. Do you know the Czech Budweiser?

I think Budweiser rules more than one city, probably numerous homes throughout the country!

I wouldn't know, I don't like beer. I do like the cardinals though. The birds I mean.

Love the clock, don't love sitting through a baseball game however. Maybe that's why beer was invented?

There is a large Budweiser plant near us, in Cartersville, Georgia, which opened in 1993. It is pretty big, 1700 acres, 900,000 sq feet. They serve the Southeast and advertise the Bud Light Golden Wheat which is brewed here. I prefer India Pale Ale beers, when I drink one, which is not very often though. I like the cardinals on your sign. I don’t know what type of sign they have over here.
