It would be hard to imagine a beer that Americans have embraced more wholeheartedly than Budweiser. Bud Light and Budweiser are the number one and number three bestselling beers in America, respectively, and in September, the brewers of Bud will sponsor the “Budweiser Made In America” festival in Philadelphia, hosted by rapper Jay-Z.

Budweiser is owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev N.V., a Belgian and Brazilian company with headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. Its U.S. operations include managing 12 breweries plus hops farms, malt plants, barley elevators and a rice mill.
