August Busch IV to Leave AB InBev’s Board

According to Bloomberg, August Busch IV, the former CEO of Anheuser-Busch and current media-dodging playboy of a recently deceased girlfriend, will join the ranks of the unemployed after he leaves his seat on the AB InBev board of directors after a April 26th shareholder vote to bring in two new members. The news is not surprising, but it’s gotta be tough to give up that sweet gig, but it’s not clear if this means he will also be losing his 100k+/month salary from AB Inbev as a special consultant, product taster and official “makes sure the couch doesn’t float away” guy, which was negotiated during the buyout.

August Busch IV Bares Soul to Deb Peterson

So it’s come to this August Busch IV…now you’re waxing philosophical to STLToday’s Deb Peterson? Jesus dude, our number is pretty easy to remember: 314-266-TIPS We’re a great freaking shoulder to cry on! We’ll hit you with the highlights anyway. Regardless it appears that Busch isn’t dealing with the stress of losing his girlfriend, Adrienne Martin, well, especially after the takeover of his company. A takeover that was, and apparently still is, very difficult to deal with. [Read More]

CBS’s Russ Mitchell talks with the author of “Dethroning the King: The Hostile Takeover of Anheuser-Busch, An American Icon” Julie Macintosh about her thoughts on the mysterious death of Busch’s girlfriend, Adrienne Nicole Martin. (We would have embedded it here, but CBS sucks and disabled embedding…and probably touches new born puppies in bad places.) Interesting stuff about a case that so far, has netted very little int the way of details aside from a 911 tape that was as boring as they come despite all the media outlets trying to make it interesting.

August Busch IV’s Girlfriend Found Dead at His Home

August Busch IV, St. Louis’ bad boy playboy millionaire, who’s family beer-making business was sold to InBev a few years ago, had yet another run in with Johnny Law recently when a dead woman was found last Sunday in his South Lindbergh mansion. The woman, 27 year old Adrienne Nicole Martin, was a former girlfriend of Busch. Pretty suspicious that a woman was found dead in a mansion and the mansion was owned by her boyfriend, and the boyfriend has had a few issues with the law in his past right…and that all day Sunday my trick knee was aching which usually means there’s been a disturbance in the Hooters waitress force?
