      MANITOWOC - A Manitowoc landmark has new owners.

      Briess Industries of Chilton purchased the Riverland Ag Corp. grain storage facility in Manitowoc.

      For many years the building was Anheuser-Busch's malting plant.

      The Washington Street facility is perhaps best known for its iconic Budweiser murals.

      Briess Industries says the deal will allow it expand malting operations in Chilton and Waterloo, Wisconsin.

      The terms of the sale were not disclosed.
