Anheuser-Busch advertisement

May 19, 1892

Anheuser-Busch advertisement, May 19, 1892. The advertisement suggests that people generally preferred Anheuser-Busch bottled beer to wine. Interestingly, this did not actually hold true for company founder Adolphus Busch, who grew up in a wine-growing region in Germany and maintained a life-long preference for wine over beer when it came to his own personal consumption. From: Frank Leslie's Illustrated Weekly, Vol. LXXIV, No. 1914 (May 19, 1892): 273.
