It’s a magical time of year at this St. Louis Brewery: free beer, festive lights, s’mores stations and mighty Clydesdales.

Free samples? Yes, please!

Situated in the historic Soulard neighborhood in St. Louis, Anheuser-Busch has been part of the city’s scenery for over 150 years. The King of Beers is the fifth oldest brewery in the United States and you get a sense of that nostalgia touring the facility. The brewery offers a stellar free tour throughout the year, but during the holidays they kick it up a notch.

They have been spreading holiday cheer for thirty years and counting. The entire grounds are decked out in lights, sampling booths are spread out throughout the area, the Clydesdale stable is open for visitors and you can warm up and roast s’mores over an open fire. Does it get much better than that? Yes, it does. It is free and kid-friendly!

Aren’t they cute?

Horseshoe is as big as his hand.

Make sure to stop in The Biergarten, an outdoor area in the summer but enclosed and heated during the winter months. It features 18 beers on draught and offers a buffet of pub food.  Be sure to try the Bavarian Pretzel Sticks, my husband claims they are the best he has ever had!

    Beautiful photographs of the festive lights at the brewery. I don’t really appreciate beer, but your pictures really “draw me in” anyway! Sounds like a great three day adventure…you guys really know your away around the St. Louis area and how to have a great time!

      St. Louis is an awesome city. Not only do they have great attractions, most of them are free!

      We always like to find Christmas activities like zoo lights or markets during the holidays. When we saw the brewery had something going on and it included free beer, we were in!

    Really don’t drink but my husband does and he loves going to breweries and distilleries. This place is wonderfully dressed up and Budweiser is a favorite brand of his!

      Even if you don’t drink it’s a fun tour plus you get to see the beautiful Clydesdales. So it could be a win-win for both of you!

    It all looks very festive, although there’s something sad about looking at lights once the holiday is over. I like brewery tours even though I don’t drink beer much and the horses look cute. Maybe next year.

      I think they should leave the lights up all year around, makes the area so festive. The brewery has been part of the landscape of St. Louis for over a 150 years so even if you don’t like beer it’s a fun way to experience a little history.

      You are right about that! It is a cool and festive place to be during the Christmas season for sure.
