Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tips (24)

Clydesdales and Free beer :)

My husband liked this better than I did .. as I'm not a beer lover but Clydesdales and Free beer is a good deal. When we entered we handed tickets for the tour. So the shorter tour was free. I gather there is a more detailed longer tour but this was long enough. Took around 40 minutes.
THEY GIVE YOU A FREE SAMPLE AND THEN YOU GET ONE DRINK OF ANYTHING THEY HAVE ON TAP. IN THE TOUR THERE IS AN AREA THAT IS REALLY COLD AND REALLY HOT.

BRING YOUR ID .. EVEN IF YOU ARE ELDERLY THEY DO CARD YOU.

The Reward at the End

At the end of the tour, you are delivered to the "Hospitality Room", where you are offered free pretzels and beer. The bar at the back had about 20 beers on tap, and you are allowed to sample two. (There were three guys there who each went back more than twice - I think as long as you aren't getting DRUNK, you will probably be allowed to sample more that the allotted two drinks). I had the Beach Bum - a blonde ale which I found to be very tasty. Being a light-weight beer drinker, it is the only one I had...

See the Budweiser Clydesdales & Stables

The Clydesdale stables are a highlight of the tour. According to the guide, Anheuser-Busch is the largest breeder of Clydesdale horses in the world. These magnificent animals (and HUGE) are famous world-wide as the draft horses pulling the red Budweiser wagon. The wagons are on display inside the stable, as well as the custom rigging used to attach the horse to the pulls. The brick stable itself is historic, and is listed as such with the National Register of Historic Places. Be sure to check out the antique chandelier inside - gorgeous!

Brewery Tours are COOL

I love factory tours. They are interesting, and usually FREE. This free tour is particularly good. Lasts about an hour, you get to see the famous Budweiser Clydesdales, and get free beer at the end - AWESOME! There is walking involved, as well as some stair climbing. Kids are allowed (although they will be restricted to soft drinks once you reach the Hospitality room). I really enjoyed the tour and recommend it to everyone!

A good place to wet the whistle

A tour through the plant to show how beer is made is quite worth while. It takes about 1 hour to go through, and shows each step to make behind glass windows of how beer is made and processed. The tour takes around 1 1/2 hours and not usually crowded since they control the inflow.

A Must See, No Charge, Experience!

I've taken this tour 4 times & like it for the thoroughness, historical buildings, horse stables & free beer! You get to taste several kinds. Under 21 get free Root Beer. This is the original Anheuser-Busch plant, where this world famous beer began. And it is very large. Bring your camera. Drive by around Christmas time for a special night time view - every red brick building is outlined is little white lights and so are all the many trees. Yes, trees at a beer brewery. The attractive landscaping here is a special feature, too.

Warnings: 1) Can be exhausting on a summer day, as you have to walk outside through the grounds. 2) On weekends & unpredictable, other days, the bottling area is not operating. I've only seen the bottling part once & that's one of the best parts of the tour, in my opinion.

Old-style Trolley buses for trip back up the hill are a fun bonus, at the end of the tour! You may enjoy the large gift shop, too. Everything from fancy beer steins for your collection to Bud bathing suits!

Beer Tour at Anheuser-Busch

If you're a beer lover then a visit to Anheuser-Busch is something not to be missed. Here, one can take a tour of the entire plant and learn a bit or two on how beer is being created from the fields to your hand on Superbowl Sunday. And don't worry...there's plenty of free beer at the end of the tour so if you got bored then it will all be a blur once you get out of the place. :)Just remember not to drink and drive after. *wink*

Take a Brewery Tour

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.

Find out how your favorite beer is brewed

Take the tour of the Anheuser Busch Brewery. They give you a good explanation on the ingredients and process, then show you the machines that make the beer (including a nice tour of the grounds) and then they ply you with free beer.

I went once, a few months before my 21st birthday and then about a year later. Both times I had a great time -- you do not need to drink to enjoy the tour. Bring the whole family to this free tour!

Anheuser-Busch Brewery

Even though American beer generally sucks. You can't turn down an opportunity to visit the world headquarters for Anheuser-Busch. It is the world's third largest brewing company in volume. This brewery, the largest of the Anheuser-Busch breweries, was opened in 1852 and includes three buildings that are on the register of National Historic Landmarks. The tour of the place is free and it takes visitors through the complex. Those of the legal age get to enjoy two free glasses of beer at the end of the tour.

The company keeps a rotation of its famous Clydesdale horses at its headquarters, and visitors to the brewery can observe the Clydesdales in their exercise field and see their places in the carriage house.

Anheuser-Busch brews 35 different beers and malt liquors. Its best known beers include brands such as Budweiser, the Busch and Michelob families, and Natural Light. The company also produces a number of smaller-volume and specialty beers, nonalcoholic brews, malt liquors (King Cobra and the Hurricane family), and flavored malt beverages (e.g. the Bacardi family and Tequiza).

Anheuser-Busch Brewery

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.

Anheuser-Busch Brewery

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.
