I spent an hour studying in four different spaces on campus in the hopes of comparing study environments to find what works best for me (and maybe for you, too).
Busch Hall and its counterpart, Anheuser-Busch Hall, are seemingly designed to confuse incoming freshmen. Not only, it seems, are there two buildings named for the same brewery (yes, a brewery), but they are located almost as far apart as possible on the Danforth campus. These buildings mark the considerable contributions of the Busch family and the Anheuser-Busch company to Washington University. They’re also just the tip of the iceberg.
Local beer giant Anheuser-Busch is giving out free samples at bars, pubs and restaurants all over the country in its first Budweiser National Happy Hour this evening.
So, I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but St. Louis is kind of big on beer. Although Anheuser-Busch has the biggest name and the biggest hold on the town, there are plenty of smaller breweries with high-quality products worth checking out.
Let’s face it. St. Louis is really only known for three things: the Arch, the Cards and Bud. After living here for a while, you begin to take some of these things for granted, especially Anheuser-Busch products.
What if a Chinese company owned the New York Yankees? For many in the Washington University and St. Louis communities, the merger of Belgian brewer InBev and local giant Anheuser-Busch may seem like a similar takeover, according to Olin Business School Professor Glenn MacDonald.
