Overland Journal visits the Anheuser-Busch Brewery

On many of my adventures in the American Southwest, I have come across innumerable shiny, small, cylindrical artifacts.  Some are inscribed with the words ‘Bud Light,’ while others are simply emblazoned ‘Budweiser.’  So I took it upon myself to make a journey in hopes to find the source of these most peculiar relics.

Seeing the word ‘packaging’ was a great clue to unraveling this mystery.  Perhaps these relics are merely vessels to contain some sort of liquid…  Then I turned the corner and hit the jackpot.  A sign boasting an output of 1,950 12oz cans per minute!!

After making this great discovery, I noticed that they had some fine specimens on display:

This diesel powered overlanding super-bus is great for those long-distance journeys.  It has 3 living rooms, 27 fridges, and 5 bathrooms:

This rig is known as the Sportsmobeer:
