For 13 years between 1920 – 1933 it was illegal to make alcohol in America. While over 1,000 breweries went out of business, several found ways to retool their facilities and keep making money.
Not content with slipping into bankruptcy, Anheuser-Busch switched from making beer to amphibious cars. While I have never seen them in any of John Wayne’s WWII movies, apparently they saw action with the army & navy in the second world war.
