Anheuser-Busch Displays Historic and Unusual Promotional Items
After an eight-month period, the former schoolhouse in Anheuser-Busch’s St. Louis brewery grounds is opening as a museum. The museum includes more than 400 items from the brewery’s past, including historic and unusual promotional items, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
In addition to old Budweiser bottles and cans, viewers can check out promotional items such as cufflinks, pocket knives and imprinted cork pulls. Some of the items were donated, while others were acquired from collectors.
The museum will be included as a stop on a new tour across the facilities, which also includes the brewery’s other National Historic Landmark buildings—the Brew House and the famous Budweister Clydesdale stables.
Tracy Lauer, Anheuser-Busch’s manager of archives, told the Post-Dispatch that many of the items in the exhibit have never been shown to the public and had been in storage at the brewery.
