Three generations in the brewery

January 6th, 2006 | Posted by Real Beer

Three generations of the Owens family have worked at the Anheuser-Busch plant in Los Angeles.

A lot has changed. For starters, the first had a 15-minute beer break every two hours, the second free beer after a shift, the third gets two cases a month – but must wait until he gets home to drink the beer.

“Today, everything’s automated and high-speed,” said Dennis Owens, the second generation employee. “Those kind of beer privileges would make it impossible for anyone to run the equipment safely.”

    One thing hasn’t changed in 3 generations, though. They still produce crap. They’re just are better now at producing crap faster and more consistently.
