In 1857, Adolphus Busch arrived in St. Louis with a belief: the most successful products in this new and growing nation would be made with unyielding commitment to quality.

He was my great-grandfather, and thanks to his vision and hard work, it’s been my family’s privilege to be part of the fine art of brewing for almost 150 years.

William K Busch Brewing Company represents a new chapter in American brewing. Our brands, Kräftig lager and light, are brewed according to Reinheitsgebot, the German Beer Purity Law, to deliver a superior product with an exceptional taste.

My father, Gussie, told me brewing good beer for people who appreciate it was the key to our family’s success. His words are the inspiration for our company and our beers, Kräftig and Kräftig light.
