The cost of admission is free, so what a deal. Good tour, just tons of mass produced same-same beer rolling off the lines. Great place to see where it all started, and where all the íriceí beer comes from.

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.

Tour is awesome. As is the tasting at the end. The beer-to-go selection is crap and way too expensive.

The Anheuser-Busch Campus is amazing and is a must see for anyone passing through St. Louis. The tour is one of the best that I have been on. The guides are very knowledgeable and provide an educational experience. The tasting at the end is a great closure to the tour.

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.

Its all about the huge enterprise of AB beer. Staff are nice, place is fine, but its AB beer. A nice tour for a family on vaction, but not a great place to hang out.

My first brewery tour in the summer of 08. Free which was nice and all the free samples you want in the end. Then again of course, it is Budweiser. It was nice to learn how the classic lager and its brethren are brewed though.

The tour is free and there is a lot to learn about beer and A-B history here. The trip to see the Clydesdales and their stable (they live better than I do) is really cool. Pictures are permitted most places. Two full pints are proved free at the end. I tried Bud Select and Bare Knuckle. The gift shop has a ton of stuff and it is pretty low-priced. I bought some nice glassware for $3 each. I would come back here anytime even if I have moved onto better beer. You still have to give these guys credit for the consumer base they have established. Now that they are owed by INBEV I would recommend a trip here before something changes and a piece of post-prohibition history is lost.

i like to visit the a-b brewery whenever i find myself in st. louis. you see the legendary clydesdyles, get an idea of the ginormity of the brewing operation, and see copper and stainless steel tanks that tower 30 feet or more. whatever your opinion of the a-b products, brewing on this scale is well worth a visit or two. also, there is a ígiftí shop so you can buy all kinds of cheap goo-gaws to bring home to your friends and family to prove that you were íthinkingí about them while you were in st. louis, not just running around drinking beer.

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...
