The story of Budweiser is truly the story of one man’s ambition and genuine American ingenuity. Adolphus Busch was the son of a well-to-do German and it was he who introduced Amercians to the taste of Bohemian lager and forver changed the way we think about, brew and enjoy beer. Adolphus believed there were three ways to do things – the wrong way, the right way and the better way. When it came to brewing his lager, he did it right. When it came to keeping it fresh, he did it better, ushering in a host of innovations that helped him realize his dream of making Budweiser America’s national beer. Adolphus Busch’s vision for the Great American Lager went well beyond the bottle, projecting Budweiser into society’s lifestyle and culture. He knew that getting it there would take marketing effort as tasteful and fresh as his beer. In other words, it would take a stroke of marketing genius.
In honor of Adolphus Busch, for an extremely limited time, we are offering an amazing price on some of our Budweiser neon signs. Budweiser neon signs for sale is truly the “King of Beers” …

History of Budweiser neon
The word neon comes from the Greek "neos," meaning "the new gas." Neon gas was discovered by William Ramsey and M. W. Travers in 1898 in London. The French engineer, chemist, and inventor Georges Claude (b. Sept. 24, 1870, d. May 23, 1960), was the first person to apply an electrical discharge to a sealed tube of neon gas (circa 1902) to create a lamp. Georges Claude displayed the first neon lamp to the public on December 11, 1910, in Paris.
In 1923, Georges Claude and his French company Claude Neon, introduced neon signs to the United States, by selling two to a Packard car dealership in Los Angeles. Earle C. Anthony purchased the two neon signs reading "Packard" for $24,000. Neon sign lighting quickly became a popular fixture in outdoor advertising. Visible even in daylight, people would stop and stare at the first neon signs dubbed "liquid fire."
Hollow glass tubes used to make neon signs come in 4, 5 and 8 ft lengths. To shape the tubes, the glass is heated by lit gas and forced air. Depending on the glass composition, the working range of glass is from 1600' F to over 2200'F. The tubes are scored (partial cut) while cold with a file and then snapped apart while hot. Then the artisan creates the angle and curve combinations. When the tubing is finished, the tube most be processed. This process varies depending on country; the procedure is called "bombarding" in the US. The tube is partially evacuated of air. Next, it is short circuited with high voltage current until the tube reaches a temperature of 550 F. Then the tube is evacuated again until it reaches a vacuum of 10-3 torr. Argon or neon is back filled to a specific pressure depending on the diameter of the tube and sealed off.
Red is the color neon gas produces, neon gas glows with its characteristic red light even at atmospheric pressure. There are now more than 150 colors possible; almost every color other than red is produced using argon, mercury and phosphor.
