Photo of the future home of Anheuser-Busch, Inc. in Van Nuys, taken during the ground-breaking ceremony in 1954. A billboard reads: "Western Home of Budweiser - Lager Beer - Anheuser-Busch, Inc. - St. Louis. Los Angeles. Newark". A crowd of people can be seen standing next to a 'grand stand' in the background. Founded in 1852, and incorporated in 1875, Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc. is the largest brewing company in the United States, and the world's largest brewing company based on revenue. The then-small St. Louis, Missouri brewery was owned and operated by Eberhard Anheuser, who brought in his son-in-law Adolphus Busch as a partner in 1869. In 1876, Busch introduced America's first national beer brand: Budweiser, followed (years later) by several other brands, such as Busch, Michelob, and Bud Light to name a few. With the death of Anheuser in 1880, Busch became president of the company, subsequently becoming the first U.S.
