Carl W. Conrad
Birth: Apr. 1, 1843, Germany
Death: Oct. 26, 1922
Saint Louis
St. Louis City
Missouri, USA

Conrad, a good friend of Adolphus Busch, is usually credited with helping to develop the recipe for Budweiser beer. The brand name was first registered in the U.S. by Conrad, an importer of wines, champagnes & liquors. The Anheuser brewery produced the brand for him under contract. C. Conrad & Company had offices in Germany & in St. Louis & Adolphus got the rights to Budweiser when Conrad's company went bankrupt in 1882. To pay off Conrad's debts to the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association, the brewery assumed control of Conrad's company & the brand name Budweiser. Conrad was given a lifetime job with Anheuser-Busch. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
