Budweiser is a pale lager produced by Anheuser–Busch InBev. Introduced in 1876 by Adolphus Busch from Saint Louis, MO it has grown to become one of the highest selling beers in the United States, and is available in over 80 markets worldwide.
The Miss Budweiser were 22 hydroplanes sponsored by Budweiser beer. They were owned by Bernie Little and his youngest son, Joe. Anheuser-Busch sponsorship began in 1963, thanks to the friendship of Bernie, and Anheuser-Busch President August Busch, III. Joe stopped racing after the 2004 season, when changes in Anheuser-Busch leadership resulted in them ending their 43 years of sponsorship.
