The story of one dad’s love of beer starts with his first visit to a local watering hole.
It was 1983, and the family was enjoying a family weekend at their home in southern Wisconsin, where beer was being brewed in the backyard and there was no bar to share.
Dad, a salesman, got in line for a Budweiser.
“I thought it was good, because I like to be part of the beer culture,” he says.
But when the barman, who had no idea how popular the drink was, pulled out a pint of Budweis, he took it by surprise.
He told his dad, “That’s the best beer in the world.
It’s like drinking a gold medal in the Olympics.”
Dad’s dad was in for a surprise when he walked into the Budweisers bar and saw the man behind the bar was his dad.
So, that’s what Dad did.
When his dad asked for the Bud we had been waiting for, the barkeeper handed him a pint.
After the drink, the guy behind the counter said to Dad, “You’re a genius, man.
You invented a world-class beer.
You’re the man.”
A couple of years later, in the same bar, the BudWeiser was the national drink of choice for the United States.
This is how the Bud’s first world-wide success story began.
The drink had become a worldwide phenomenon, with beer parlors in dozens of countries across the globe.
And it was all thanks to a dad in a bar in Southern California, who decided to make his son one of the first to make a BudWeis.
In 1984, he created a “Bud” for the world to enjoy, and it was a real hit.
Nowadays, Budweise is brewed in many countries, from Britain to India to Japan to France to Belgium and the Netherlands to Portugal and Austria.
Even though this drink is still considered one of America’s greatest beer, its success is due in large part to Dad’s persistence.
Today, beer is a global phenomenon, and we all know that a great beer can bring out the best in anyone.
As a result, it’s become a symbol of American success and diversity.
Beer Ball is the annual Beer Ball, where dads take a shot at creating their favorite Budweiss and share it with the world via the Internet.
Each year, Dad and his son are asked to brew one of their favorite beers, and this year’s recipe is based on a recipe he found on BeerBall.com.
To help Dad get the most out of the idea, Dad’s son created a website for the BeerBall contest and a video of him making a beer for Dad’s beer.
A few weeks later, the video of Dad’s BeerBall victory went viral and was featured on every national beer TV show.
Then, in late May, Dad was invited to join the Beer Ball in Atlanta, Georgia.
From the comfort of his own home, Dad shared his recipe and made his own version of the Bud Weiser.
