The Anheuser-Busch Beer Depot is located at 1207-1215 Jones Street in downtown Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha architect Henry Voss designed the complex for the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association of St. Louis, Missouri in 1887.

Once covering more than a block, today the Anheuser-Busch Office Building is the only remaining structure of what was the original Krug Brewery, the largest brewery among Omaha's original "Big 4" brewers. Anheuser-Busch took over the facilities after buying Krug.[2] The office building is one of the most elaborate examples of the Romanesque Revival style in Omaha. The Depot once included a stable, beer vault/ice house, famous gold basement and cobblestone alley.[3]
