It’s a magical time of year at this St. Louis Brewery. Free beer, festive lights, s’mores stations and mighty Clydesdales. Just stop. You had us at free beer!
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!
Make sure to stop in The Biergarten, a new addition to the brewery. In the summer it is an outdoor area, but enclosed and heated during the winter months. They feature 18 beers on draught and offer a full menu of pub food. Be sure to try the Bavarian Pretzel Sticks, Dave claims they are the best he has ever had!
