ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Anheuser-Busch is set make one of the biggest investments in U.S. brewing history.
It’s so big Mayor Lyda Krewson will join Anheuser-Busch leadership tomorrow at 10 a.m. to proclaim Wednesday May 17 as “U.S. of Beer Day” in St. Louis.
The brewery is going to invest $500 million per year for the next four years in its US operations. That’s $2 billion total.
Nearly $13 million will go to the St. Louis location. Among the items being addressed are updates to the signature beech wood-aging tanks, increasing energy efficiency throughout the brewery and improving existing infrastructure, including a new fermenter visible from the tour center.
