4/21 Clydesdale Camera Day

Come visit the headquarters of the world's largest brewer of beer. On one of the daily tours, you will get a history of the brewery, glimse at the bottling process, and a taste of their product in the hospitality room. Definately worth visiting if you have ever wondered how beer was made, or if you just want a couple free drinks.
I enjoyed this tour, even though I'm not much of a drinker. It was fascinating to see the moving machinery and the whole process, but the highlight was definitely the Clydesdale horses!
This isn't exactly family-friendly--it is a beer factory, after all.
One of the bigger brewery tours I've been to. Most of the other ones don't let you see the packaging of the beer in progress which this one does. A trade off is you don't get to look inside the drums which some of the smaller tours let you do. You get also to see lheAnheuser-Busch Clydesdales paddock and stable. At the end of the tour you go to the Hospitality Room where you get the 2 free glasses of beer with a choice of different types. The 2 free glasses may not be enforced at some times so you may be able to get more. We also got a free bag of prestles with our beer.
There is a problem with the last tour of the day, when it gets busy the tickets they give our for the last tour may be finished at 3PM. Calling to find out does not help as I was told that the tours are until 4PM, when I got there tickets were finished and I had to come the next day which was not busy.
This is the world headquarters for Anheuser-Busch Brewery so they give free tours of the plant along with 2 glasses of beer afterwards. It was interesting . I especially liked the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales paddock and stable. You will see their historic brew house, packaging plant. But the best part is the end in the Hospitality Room where you get the 2 free glasses of beer with a choice of different types.
While you take the tour, be sure to look for the little flourishes, the subtle references, the little things which reflect the history, culture, and image of Anheuser-Busch. Here are just a few...
You can take the official Budweiser tour. It doesn't take that long and they give your a rapid fire history of Bud with tours of the horses and vats. We didn't see the bottling.
The price is right for this tour-FREE. You start out in the lobby which also has a gift shop and a mini-museum. You see the clydedales, the brewery and then get to sample beer at the end of the tour.
