Description 

Representative of the influence of German immigrants on beer brewing industry in America, this company, begun in 1852 by Eberhard Anheuser who in 1865 was joined by his son-in-law, Adolphus Busch, pioneered the use of new methods of production and distribution, including the invention of the refrigerated railroad car. These buildings, dating from the last quarter of the 19th century, are of brick, ornamented on the exterior with gargoyles and other figures. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, November 13, 1966
