Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Brewery
What do horses, dogs and beer have in common? Find out while touring the grounds, brewery and stables, and while sampling the beer in the hospitality room. Since its founding in 1855, the brewery has developed into a major landmark and is home to the famous Budweiser Clydesdales. Daily tours leave about every 15 minutes. A souvenir shop offers a wide range of apparel and other items adorned with the Anheuser-Busch logo. This is a popular attraction but it is not overcrowded. Best of all, ample parking space is available and tours are free. Call ahead for more details.
I liked to visit there, becausing it is very interesting, and they take you on a tour, plus you get to sample the beer. I've also been to Jack Danielle's Distillory, but there was no whiskey tasting there. We just went on to of the hill and partied with the owners, and had an awesome time.
They love to throw a big party, especially during Apple City BBQ cook off, every year. They definitaley know how to party.
We were very disappointed. We thought we would get to see the entire process from start to finish. We thought we would see everthing from washing the bottles and cans to packaging the finally product. That was not the case. All we got to see was two tanks, a mashing tank and three old buildings. That took an hour. Thank goodness is was free.
I was born in St. Louis and live near the brewery and had never gone on the tour. We kept saving it for a rainy day activity. Well that rainy day never seemed to come and so one day we just went. We loved it. I was very proud and impressed with the whole operation, the history of the company and the ultra-cleanliness and orderliness of the system. I enjoyed the Clydesdales very much and learned from my friend who does the tours that the names on the placards above the horses arent really their names, so when you call them by the wrong names they just look at you and act so bored, lol I live here and closeby and look forward to seeing it all again. There is a lot of walking through the brewery, inside and outside, and so its hard on a hot day with little children or older people or people with any walking handicap like me. The real fun is seeing it all with people who come from all over the world to see this amazing brewery. At the end of the tour, there is a hospitality room where you can taste your choice of AB Products. (over 21) Fresh beer is so crisp. I am no beer fan but I enjoyed it. Its also a great date for couples because its free and fun. Tours every half hour. In the lobby there are worthwhile displays, among them beautiful beer steins and a piece of art by Leroy Nieman of the clydesdales on plain brown paper that is full of life and captures the majesty of these horses and is my favorite. Also for Nascar fans, a car owned by Dale Earnhardt, Sr.is displayed. There are also beer collections from the last one hundred years, and even a MINI-JET. The gift shop is great, you will definitely find something you want to take home. I bought the darts, and some clothes. You will be worn out so, take your friends and plan lunch afterwards at the haunted (for real) Lemp Mansion, my friend owns it and it's a one of a kind place!, and very close by. A morning tour is better as well. Enjoy! Michele
The tour is a unique attraction. It showcases the Busch family's legacy. You learn the history of the brewery as well as witness the brewing process. There is also a visit to the Clydesdale stable. This is a walking tour. You have to go from in and out of several buildings over several city blocks. There is a shuttle for the last leg of the tour. Visitors end their tour in the Hospitality Room for complimentary beers/soft drinks and snacks. It will be the most delicious domestic beer you've ever had - fresh and served by courteous staff at the perfect temperature1 Be sur to check out the architecture of the buildings. At Christmas time, the plaza is a popular site to check out Christmas lights. There is a gift shop which is on the pricey side. But hey, the tour is free!
Even though I've been there, it's always amazing to revisit the King of Beers and see all the tradition and history that they have. Well worth the free entry and 45 min tour to sample a couple of beers.
The tour is free, with usually only a short wait - and plenty of things to see and do while you're waiting. Free beer samples and snacks at the end - a great way to get ready for an evening on the town!
