The Budweiser Brewery, also known as the Anheuser Busch Brewery, is located in St. Louis, Missouri, and is the world headquarters for the Anheuser Busch Brewing Company. The Budweiser Brewery St. Louis is the largest brewery the company has, and travelers often make their way to the Anheuser Busch Brewery for tours and samples. Open since the mid 1800's, the Anheuser Busch Brewery has remained an important part of the St. Louis economy and, in recent years, a popular place for visitors to tour.
To take a Budweiser brewery tour, travelers will want to check ahead for hours of operation. Budweiser brewery tours are given daily, but tours are subject to demand. So, you will actually want to plan your Anheuser Busch brewery tour during a busy time, which will generally be on the weekend or in the evening.
On your Budweiser brewery tour, you will see the brewing process, tour the Clydesdale stable, see the 1892 Brew House and end at the packaging plant. After the tour, two free drinks are available to tour guests who are at least 21 years old. The horses kept at the Clydesdale stable continue to be one of the most popular attractions at the brewery, and different groups of horses are kept in rotation for viewing. The horses can be viewed both in the carriage house and in the exercise field.
Trips to the Budweiser Brewery St. Louis can be part of a day trip through St. Louis. A tour will take about an hour and to two hours, and can easily be combined with a trip to the St. Louis Zoo, the Missouri Botanical Gardens or the Gateway Arch at Jefferson Park. A dinner cruise to see the Gateway Arch from below can be a nice way to finish out the day after spending the afternoon at the infamous Budweiser Brewery St. Louis.
