" The Bavarian Brewing Co. produced such horribly tasting beer that "people would spit it back across the bar at bartenders," Knoedelseder says."

And 150 years later, that proud Budweiser tradition continues!

tennessee.hillbilly: That's the catch-22 of success, isn't it?

If you start out poor but through your own internal drive and a little luck become a self-made millionaire, almost by default your children won't have your same drive and motivation as they will have most likely known a more provilidged life.

Wait wait, I thought being born to poor parents made you lazy and shiftless?

Mark Ratner: I know a woman who worked at the corporate office here in St. Louis before InBev took over. She said it was an unwritten rule that if you happen to walk past or be in the elevator with Busch IV, you're not to make eye contact or talk to him unless he speaks to you first. And she had a high paying job, too.

She should just be happy he didn't offer her a ride in his car
