Salty Nut Team,

As the former President of Anheuser-Busch, I appreciate the fine craftsmanship that embodies a full flavored beer. As a company we are always generating ideas to expand our brand presence in new markets. Most importantly, we have developed an initiative to identify local brewers that we can help support in early stage development. We understand the struggles it takes to build a brand, access quality ingredients and develop the marketing prowess to be successful in this dynamic industry. Please let me know if your team would be interested in engaging in a brief dialogue to discuss new business opportunities.

Best Brews,
August A. Busch III

It has to be something fake, I just set up my brewery website/email last night, and haven't published it. So I have no idea how anyone knew it

You could copy the entire full header and send it to me and I'll see where it came from.
