ST. LOUIS - In addition to the free tour, Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Tour Center will now be offering two new tours and a new class to patrons.
Unlike the complimentary tour, which has been free for more than 125 years, these new developments will cost a fee. But they will include free samples at the end.
The Day Fresh Tour will take customers to everything that would be seen on the free tour, which includes the Brew House and Budweiser Clydesdale stables, but also the BEVO packaging facility. The tour costs $10 for visitors over the age of 21 and $3 for ages 3-20. Kids under 3 are free. The tour will last 75 minutes and, at the conclusion, adults will receive a bottle of beer brewed that day.
For the Beermaster Tour, guests will gain a better perspective on the brewing of Budweiser. Patrons will visit the historic Brew House, Fermentation Cellars, BEVO Packaging Facility and Finishing Cellars, as well as the Finishing Tank, the Budweiser Clydesdale stable, and the Beermaster Suite. This tour will cost $25 for those 21 and older and $10 for those 13-20.
Lastly, Beer School is a class that will highlight the steps for "ultimate beer appreciation." This tour is 45 minutes and guests will gain a better understanding of beer styles, ingredients, proper pouring techniques and food-pairing suggestions.
Visitors will also participate in a taste panel to discover their new favorite beer. The class will cost $10 per person and is only for patrons 21 and older.
All tours end in The Biergarten, which has a new indoor extension that will be opening this month.
