A brewery that is a National Historic Landmark – you gotta love it.
Yes, you get samples at the end of the tour, but pay attention anyway and you might learn something like, what that beechwood aging is all about.
You’ll get to hang out with the Clydesdales and wonder if they really appreciate all of that beautiful polished brass and stained glass.
There’s the cellars, the packaging plant, the gift shop, and then yes, you can have a beer, if you’re 21!
Take it a step further and sign up for Beer School, a 30 minute class that also includes samples but provides a lesson in food pairings, pouring techniques and nutrition. Yes, just like we learned in college – beer is a food group, at least in St. Louis it is.
FYI – You can also have free samples of beer at Grant’s Farm.
