On another light hearted note, Boulevard now is claiming to be the "largest Missouri-based brewery." They always used to say (proudly, I might add) that they were the second largest brewery in Missouri. It didn't take long for smaller companies to take advantage of the marketing aspect.

Adolphus Busch, the founder of AB was European. Budweiser is named after the European town of Budweis, where Adolphus stole/garnered his recipes.

Sure AB was started here, but with the founder, name of several of it's biggest sellers, and recipes all of European heritage, isn't this really more of a homecoming?
