So after a fun morning at City Museum, we decided to head over to the Anheuser Busch Factory for some tours and fun!
And look another cake!
Also decked out for the specific place. Six Flags has some work to do.
We’ll be eating here later. Yum.
The ceiling of the guest lobby area.
The story of Anheuser Busch, enjoy your visit!
All the different kinds of beer they make.
Factory locations around the country.
There’s one in Columbus right by us! Sadly no tours there though. 😦
Beers of the world!
Photo op under the A.
Let’s start off with some beer school shall we?
First lesson, a quick run down of the brewing process.
Then the proper glassware to use.
A sample of the malt used in chocolate beers.
Hops! Don’t try tasting those though.
Explaining that beer should only be drank out of a glass, preferably not a bottle or can. In a glass the flavoring should distribute the right way to get the intended taste.
And the proper way to pour a beer.
Holly just had to grab some pictures of me drinking.
The Lemon Shandy Shock Top was the best! That’s the one on the far left. Plus fun fact the pretzels clear your taste palate between beers.
Yay! I graduated. 😛
John is so happy about his new diploma. 😛
And Holly well she already knew all this stuff. 😛
The walls in this room were pretty neat.
St Louis, MO!
So who’s ready for a factory tour?
Our ticket in and for free beer!
First up the World Famous Clydesdales!
Time to move on.
Outside of the factory.
Oh look another horse. 😛
Inside the stable house, they have pictures of their Clydesdale’s.
Hey there’s one with my name.
The domed ceiling of the stable house.
Our tour guide telling us a little bit about the stable house.
More of the factory.
The A again!
Eagles are also spotted everywhere.
One last look at the outside of the factory before heading inside.
A 7 step look at the Budweiser brewing process.
Our tour guide explains the process and shows us some of the malts used.
Next we step into an elevator that was a mild 94 degrees.
Hurry quick let’s get out of here.
Old style sink?
A closer look at the tanks.
Uh oh can’t go in there.
Bye bye Brew kettles.
Back outside another A!
Back inside in the cool in the Beechwood Aging Cellars room.
These tanks were very cold. Hence it was very cold in the room, but a nice refreshing on a hot day like today.
Levers and pipes.
This is what the beechwood chips that are used in the tanks look like.
And that concludes our tour folks. Go get your free beer now!
The size of the free samples we got! Plus there were so many choices!
Time for some food, not bad prices either.
Pretzel bun hot dog. Yum yum!
Thanks for a great afternoon Anheuser Busch!
The Anheuser Busch factory was a great time, and I’m not even that big a fan of beer! There’s enough interesting stuff here to spend an afternoon at this place. While not as fun as the Busch theme parks, still a can’t be missed spot in St. Louis. Come see the original on you way through St. Louis!
Special thanks to Holly Finley for contributing pictures to this post, mainly of me drinking. haha 😛
