Anheuser-Busch owns Busch Gardens, SeaWorld, and several other amusement parks and resorts, as well as production, transportation and packaging operations related to its beer business.



In November 2004 A-B sold its 20% participation in CCU (Compañía de Cervecerías Unidas) in Chile to a Chilean Bank, in a public bid.

The St. Louis Cardinals baseball team was owned by Anheuser-Busch from the mid 1950s until it was sold to a group of private investors in March 1996. Busch Stadium, paid for and built by the brewery in the early 1960s, still bears its name, although a new stadium is under construction and the current ballpark will be demolished by 2006. A-B has signed an agreement for the new ballpark to keep the "Busch Stadium" name.

The company is known in the United States for its huge advertising presence, including a sports marketing division which creates advertising material for the Super Bowl and many other sporting events.

Famous Busch television campaigns have included the "Gimme a light" spots, frogs and lizards saying 'bud-wei-ser', the annual Bud Bowl, the "Waazzzup" series, and others. Recently, Miller Brewing began a series of commercials which featured "referees" calling "penalties" on people for drinking Budweiser, and they would then take the Budweiser and replace it with Miller.

Anheuser-Busch responded with their own "referees" commericals in which referees were taking people's Budweiser and keeping it for themselves. One such commercial showed the "referees" being confronted by the police. The most successful radio advertisements are the "Real American Heroes" ads, which were then changed to "Real Men of Genius" after September 11, 2001 attacks.
