Offsite Happy Hour at Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Brewery

Since its founding in 1852, Anheuser-Busch has honored its historic brewing methods, maintaining the tradition of brewing the finest beers, one batch at a time.

Nestled in the historic Soulard neighborhood of St. Louis, our largest and oldest brewery site was selected based on its access to the Mississippi River, the large presence of German immigrants in the 1800’s, and the natural cave formations that were used to store beer prior to artificial refrigeration.

Regardless of the experience you choose, as you walk through the halls of the historic St. Louis brewery, you are transported in time.

You will realize the vision that became one of the largest and oldest breweries in the nation. From the history-rich architecture - including three National Historic Landmarks - to cutting-edge brewing technology, you will witness first-hand the heritage and timeless tradition Anheuser-Busch employs to brew beer.

Join us for a tour of the Beechwood Aging Cellars & Historic Brewhouse, Visit the stables to see the Clydesdales, and a dinner buffet.
