Bitter Brew

This is a history of the Anheiser Busch company, but really it's a history of the Busch family. Growing up in St. Louis, this is really interesting - but since I moved away at 18, I never really keyed into the long history of the Busch family. They were seriously city royalty, not-quite Carnegies but seriously rich and famous. I'm only halfway through, and the history is already up to the 70s - so I suspect the next 50 years will be about the fallout of the newest scion's management.
