It is being called the largest blackout in U.S. history and though it didn’t spread to the Midwest, companies in Missouri were affected as the lights went out in New York, New Jersey, Ohio, and Michigan among others. Among the Missouri companies affected Anheuser Busch which has breweries in Newark, New Jersey and one in Baldwinsville, New York. The Newark brewery, in fact, is the company’s biggest producer of Budweiser at more than 10-Million barrels per year. American Airlines canceled eight flights at Lambert Field in St. Louis on Thursday because of the blackout. Two other flights have been delayed until today.
