Budweiser heirs are given five drops of beer before they drink anything else after they are born

This is why I love the Freakonomics podcast. I almost always learn something new. In the excellent “Church of Scionology” episode (listen here), I learned that the heirs to the Budweiser brewing company are given five drops of beer when they are born. Before they even take their first sip of milk. This indoctrinates them immediately into the family business culture. It also leads to them hitting on the nurses. A lot.
