Stretching across three centuries, from the start of the Civil War through two World Wars and Prohibition to today, Bitter Brew tells the astonishing story of how five generations of men-fathers, sons, and brothers - took a small, bankrupt brewery on the banks of the Mississippi and built it into an international colossus. It is the story of America's past and present-a tale of promise and fulfillment for immigrants like Adolphus Busch, determined to strike it rich; and of a modern generation who squandered that dream. It is a story of breathtaking wealth, political power, and public acclaim-and of heartbreak, scandal, tragedy, and death. In chronicling the rise and fall of the Busch family and its business, veteran journalist William Knoedelseder tells a broader story of American progress and decline over the last 150 years.
