The Prince of Beers by Alex Berenson


Summary: August Busch IV had everything – or seemed to. In 2006, Busch became the chief executive of Anheuser-Busch, the sixth member of his family to control the legendary brewery. At age 42, Busch was handsome, wealthy, married to a beautiful woman, and running one of the biggest companies in America. Two years later, Busch lost control of Anheuser-Busch. Soon he was jobless, divorced, and struggling with alcohol and drugs. Then he woke to find his girlfriend, a waitress named Adrienne Martin, dead in his bed.

From prize-winning novelist and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson, The Prince of Beers is the true story of the secrets, lies, addiction, and family dysfunction behind Martin’s death and Busch’s shocking downfall.


My quick thoughts on this quick read: 

This was a very short read, only like 31 pages, but this short story packed a punch.

This story is about the Budweiser family essentially not sure why there isn’t a description.

Could you imagine waking up to your gf/bf dead of a drug overdose? Well that is how this book starts. This was a pretty interesting book and really the only thing I could find short and quick set in Missouri.
