Following the joyous arrival of their twins, Billy Busch Jr., the nature-loving heir of Anheuser-Busch and head of the hunting and outdoor gear brand Geist, along with his wife Kirra (Seale) Busch, a professional surfer, have listed their stylishly renovated 1960s Malibu home for sale at $4.45 million. The family has resided in this modernized contemporary home since 2020.
In August 2020, the property was technically purchased for just under $2.7 million through a family trust overseen by Billy Busch Sr., officially known as William K. Busch, the father of Busch Jr. Both father and son were featured in the 2020 MTV reality series titled The Busch Family Brewed.
Billy Busch Jr. is a member of the Busch family, known for their association with the Anheuser-Busch brewing company. The Busch family has a significant legacy in the beer industry.
Founded in the mid-19th century, Anheuser-Busch became one of the largest and most successful breweries in the United States, and it is particularly famous for its flagship beer brand, Budweiser. The most well-known figure in this dynasty is Adolphus Busch, who played a pivotal role in the success of the brewery. Adolphus Busch married into the Anheuser family, and together with his father-in-law, Eberhard Anheuser, they transformed the company into one of the largest and most successful breweries in the country.
The family’s influence and legacy in the beer industry have persisted through generations, and they have been involved in various philanthropic activities and business ventures. The family has also been known for its ownership of the St. Louis Cardinals, a Major League Baseball team. (Bill DeWitt Jr. purchased the team from Anheuser-Busch in 1996). Additionally, some family members have been involved in other entrepreneurial pursuits and charitable endeavors over the years.
Nestled on a quarter-acre slope overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this 1962 residence above County Line Beach recently underwent a stylish renovation. The single-story home now features high-end finishes, honey-toned oak floors, and sleek, dark-framed windows.
Through the gated courtyard and past the smooth stucco exterior, the front door of this 1,909-square-foot home opens into a spacious open-plan great room.
Glass sliders connect the living room to the backyard and pool at one end, while the dining area with a built-in banquette opens to an ocean view deck at the other end. In between, a large kitchen with a central island features an integrated snack bar and a waterfall marble countertop.
Among the three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the primary suite stands out. Here, two walls of glass sliders seamlessly connect the bright bedroom to a wraparound deck and the inviting swimming pool. The suite also boasts a well-appointed walk-in closet and a generously sized bathroom.
Situated at the westernmost edge of Malibu, the house is approximately 30 miles away and, in optimal conditions, a solid 45-minute drive from the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica.
A boycott against Bud Light emerged following the company’s recent collaboration with transgender star Dylan Mulvaney in April of this year. As the parent company of Bud Light, Anheuser-Busch received a ton of backlash for the collaboration.
In response to the criticism, an Anheuser-Busch representative released a statement to Fox News.
“Anheuser-Busch works with hundreds of influencers across our brands as one of many ways to authentically connect with audiences across various demographics. From time to time we produce unique commemorative cans for fans and for brand influencers, like Dylan Mulvaney. This commemorative can was a gift to celebrate a personal milestone and is not for sale to the general public.”
