WILLIAMSBURG — The Anheuser-Busch Williamsburg brewery celebrated 50 years of brewing last weekend as more than 800 people, including company leadership, elected officials, employees and their families gathered to mark the occasion.
Anheuser-Busch’s Budweiser Clydesdales and Dalmatians greeted attendees and guests were able to participate in guided tours of the brewery to learn more about the latest brewing innovations.
Last week, Anheuser-Busch announced a $20 million investment to enable the brewery to continue to modernize, innovate and spur job creation and timed to coincide with the anniversary.
The company’s investment into the facility is part of the brewer’s 2021 announcement to “invest $1 billion over two years in the company’s facilities to accelerate the nation’s recovery and drive economic prosperity in the communities where it operates.”
The investment is part of a larger company-wide initiative that spans 26 states. The $20 million investment into the Williamsburg facility includes expanding the facility’s brewing capabilities, enhancing brewery process technologies, and facility renovations.
The company said it has created over 30 new jobs year-to-date in James City County. The new positions bring the total number of employees at the brewery to 600.
