Bitter Brew

Anyone read this?  I've been listening to the audiobook.  Interesting.  Not as much about beer, more about how dysfunctional the Busch family was.

Yep, just finished it last weekend.  I thought it was pretty good.  Very interesting family.

yes, just finished reading.  It is both the good and bad about the business and family....there isn't a clear good guy and bad guy, just a whole lot of crazy, except maybe In Bev and the effects on St. Louis and employees of AB (the real losers in the end, imho).
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...
