Global brewing company Anheuser-Busch announced plans to invest $50 million in its St. Louis campus, including a new, dedicated seltzer building. The new building will be the first addition to the St. Louis campus in more than 15 years.
The new investment will focus specifically on increasing and enhancing the company’s brewing and packaging capabilities to meet consumer demand. The project includes upgrading one of the can lines and providing the new seltzer building with systems and equipment necessary for brewing products that have been increasing in popularity.
The investment is part of Anheuser-Busch’s broader $1 billion investment in its facilities across 26 states to accelerate the nation’s recovery and drive economic prosperity in the communities across the U.S.

Companies like Boulevard Brewing Co., Urban Chestnut, and Mother’s Brewing Company are producing hundreds of thousands of barrels of craft beer in Missouri each year.
