Michelob was developed by Adolphus Busch in 1896 as a “draught beer for connoisseurs”. It was named after Michelob Michelob, a Bohemian brewmaster from Saaz, in the region famous for its Saaz hops. In 1961, Anheuser-Busch produced a pasteurized version of Michelob which allowed legal shipment of the beer across state lines. Bottled beer began to be shipped soon after, and the brand was introduced in cans in 1966.
Just as they take pride in their family of beers, they also take pride in each other. Their shared passion, commitment and accomplishments all aim toward one goal: crafting a better beer for you to enjoy. Michelob Brewing Co. is rooted in tradition which is why their brewing archives let them see every recipe, some of them handwritten, from every one of their past brewmasters. That way, they can remain faithful to their traditional brewing methods, and try out new versions of old classics as well.
