ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The departure of August Busch the Fourth from A-B is no signal that Anheuser-Busch may leave St. Louis.  That from Mayor Francis Slay.

“I have not had any indication at all that they have intent or that they are even considering moving out of the city. They certainly have a large investment here and everything I’m seeing so far seems to indicate they are committed to St. Louis.” said Mayor Slay.

“If you look on their bottles it will say ‘made in St. Louis’ which indicates, I think they understand the importance of the brand image” said Slay.

The mayor talked with our correspondents in Jefferson Ctiy.

A statement from AB/InBev said August Busch the Fourth is leaving for “personal and health reasons.” 

In December Busch’s girlfriend was found dead in his St. Louis mansion.  The Medical Examiner ruled she died of a a drug overdose.

    If you look back, the City created an adversarial position with the InBev people from the get-go. That’s different from creating an adversarial position with Larry Rice.
    Well may be not so different. Both have been harmful to St. Louis. They have already moved out in many ways.
