I never added this place because it didnít meet the websiteís "Only serves craft beer" criteria, but yes it is a must visit for any beer lover (and Bud haters). Iíve gone about 6 times in STL. If nothing else, you can gain an appreciation for the ginormous operation of this type of brewery ... the lagering tanks are bigger than most microís produce in a year. Listen to the perfectly scripted and rehearsed tour repeated over and over by the attractive and bubbly post-teen guides as they with a straight face exalt the properties of rice in their beer. Sample some of the crappy adjunct-laden beers at the end of the hour-long indoctrination, and amaze yourself that they come out the same every single time, even in 5 billion gallon batches! And the horses and dalmations are cool.

Despite the fact that most of their products are swill, it is still nice to tour one of the oldest American breweries and walk among the history of such a landmark. Two free beers at the end of the tour definitely help to erase your memory of the heat and humidity you have just been exposed to in St. Louis.

Itís interesting. Clydesdales. Lots of history. Short notes on brewing. Big, clean facility. Free beer. Who cares? Well now they are serving Budweiser American Ale. Itís worth going through the tour for a couple of those. The brewery is like the beer. Great technically. Very clean. Good tour guides. Really nice stable. Good rating cause of the above, but partly at my joy in discovering a new and decent ale.

The place and the buildings are awesome. I didnít take the tour. Unbelievable amount of Budweiser merchandise available. Very limited selection of brews to buy. Still I found 6 to take with me.

Iíve probably done this tour at least two dozen times. Itís essential for those visiting St. Louis and it takes a little under an hour. A few of the buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places, so the grounds do have a special feel to them. A slight knock to the ambience because it has gotten increasingly corporate and touristy over the years (and, I know, itís always been a far cry from small breweries). The tasting room obviously has primarily A-B products, but a few others they distribute in North America (occasionally Stella, Beckís, and others will appear). You can also get drafts of things before they come out en masse; I was among the first to try Bare Knuckle Stout and Shock Top on tours in recent years. The smell of the brewery wafts all the way across South City on clear, warm nights and thatís a good thing. The buildings, the story, the clydesdales, and the pageantry are unique, even if most of the beer isnít. This place is important to St. Louis and I hope InBev doesnít strip away even more of what makes it special.

I used to live in Soulard, where the beautiful smell of wort would waft over the neighborhood every day. Smells like money, as they say. Went on the tour 14 times, partly in an effort to memorize the tour guidesí lame jokes. Thereís also a sick fascination with the enormity of this impressive old place. Some free beer at the end of course. They say two beers, but theyíre not really counting as long as you donít make an ass of yourself. They did have Bass in there, so thatís someting.

So what if itís a mass-produced beer factory? Itís an interesting tour of a cool building. Very informative and lively. The beer, however, is disappointing. At least at the Coors plant one can sample some different offerings on occasion.

Okay, this is pretty much an awesome piece of history and definitely worth the trip. While it’s certainly not the place to go for beer, it’s definitely a tourist attraction that is worth hitting. Very interesting and I wish that I could have seen more. oh, and the fact that it is free with samples is pretty damn cool. Though the gift shop will sell you a $7 sixer...

I have been on a Budweiser tour at the Fort Collins Budweiser facility before. This tour was more fun. The tour is nice because you get to see the historic buildings on the Budweiser property. At the end of the tour you get a few free samples. I was hoping to get a chance to try some lesser available AB beers, but the choices were pretty limited.

The A-B tour is a must for anyone visiting (or living) in STL. The grounds and facilities are amazing, and pristinely kept up. Tasting at the end is great, since the whole thing is free. Selection is hit or miss - obviously A-B beers, but the quality varies. Most recently it was very poor - mostly just your basics of Bud, Bud Light, Bud Select and the spin offs of those (Lime, etc). The only halfway decent was Stella. I have been there many times before, though, where the selection was much better.
