Drink American was created by members of Brian's Belly, a beer and food website that has been proudly serving the internet frosty beverages since 1999.

Founding Father David Lauterbach was reading an old-timey print newspaper when he learned of the news that Belgian brewer InBev was planning an unsolicited bid for American icon Anheuser-Busch, brewer of Budweiser, Bud Light, Busch, the Michelob line of beverages, and countless other brands of beer (we'll forgive them for Tequiza, for now). The same article got him thinking about South African Brewery's purchase of Milwaukee, Wisconsin based Miller Brewing (now SABMiller) and Molson Canada's purchase of Golden, Colorado's Coors Brewing Company (now the Molson Coors Brewing Company).

This means Anheuser-Busch is the last large-scale American brewery to be majority owned and operated in the United States.

DrinkAmerican.US was purchased and created that weekend (coincidentally, on Memorial Day, 2008) primarily to help inform the American public of the possibility of the sale of a 150-year old brewing icon, and to do something about it.
