That same year Krug's 16-year-old nephew, August Uihlein, began working for the brewery.Over the next two decades the brewery grew to be one of the two or three biggest in Milwaukee.Many industries rely on railroads to transport the raw materials they need for manufacturing processes. Chemicals, petroleum products and other liquids are all shipped in special tank cars.The brewery prospered considerably under the Uihleins, springing back after Prohibition, and late in the 1940’s Schlitz became the best-selling brew in the United States – the Wisconsin brewer wrestling the title from Anheuser-Busch's Budweiser, the self-styled "King of Beers." The 1950’s saw a continuous assault from Anheuser-Busch to win back the crown of America's favorite.
