The latest hot spot to open on Henderson Avenue is Eberhard, an interesting bar that is fused with a night club and a restaurant. The name Eberhard is an interesting one, and an homage to Eberhard Anheuser.

Anheuser was a German American soap and candle maker, as well as the father-in-law of Adolphus Busch, the founder of the Anheuser-Busch Company.He was a major creditor of the Bavarian Brewery Company, a struggling brewery founded in 1853. Eberhard Anheuser eventually became president and CEO and changed the company name to the Eberhard Anheuser and Company. His daughter Lilly married Adolphus Busch, a brewery supply salesman, in a double wedding with Anna Anheuser (Lilly’s older sister) and Ulrich Busch (Adolphus’ brother) in 1861. The company became Anheuser-Busch in 1879.  Continue reading
