indoor and outdoor bar and grill at the AB brewery, south of downtown St. Louis. The tour of the historical brewery starts and ends here. The tour is actually pretty cool even if you're not an AB fan. beer selection is a rundown of the AB lineup. But they also had a special pilot brew of a black lager that was pretty good. Didn't have any food.

It's a joy to visit the number of small breweries that continue to pop up, but I had never visited a brewery that brews at a massive large scale that even New Belgium Brewing can't match. Anheuser Busch is an American landmark, and being in St. Louis, I had the opportunity to visit. The sights are numerous, however I did have a proper meal and drink at the Biergarten, which was in the Oktoberfest mood. Bavarian music playing overhead, light sky blue checkerboards, mugs of bright colored beer, long wooden benches for seating. A decent crowd on hand just before noon.

It's easy to think that their Biergarten will only serve similar light beers, but the beer menu does go a little deeper. A bona-fide beer menu with short descriptions and pouring sizes. While many of the beers you could seemingly get at a 7-Eleven, a few specialties/"rarities" like Budweiser Signature Draught and Michelob Golden Draft Light spot their way onto the menu. A few brews from the family of brands, such as Leffe and Blue Point, are also available. Even matching glassware come with the drafts!

Service was a little slower at the Biergarten than expected. But the return of what I got was acceptable. Beer Bratwurst with parmesan fries for lunch, plus potato pancakes as an appetizer put me in a drinking mood. Furthermore, after spending years digesting craft beers at premium prices, it felt light weight was liften when I spotted many drafts at $4, including Budweiser Premium Draft ('twas alright, thankyouverymuch).

Come to Anheuser Busch for a day and soak in the history and a Bud. And finally, don't forget to add your name to the Brewmaster Tour and enjoy multiple samples of beers on the tour!

This is the big tasting room/restaurant where tours of the St Louis AB plant end. It has a combination hospitality room/ chain restaurant vibe inside and the big tour groups dropping off every 15 min would really be disruptive if you were trying to have lunch inside. The outisde seating area was big and seemed nice, but it was way, way too hot to go out there they day we visited. The service was good, especially under the circumstances, but we didn't have any food. The selection is quite good, with maybe 40 different beers on tap, but the quality... Well, the best thing available was Goose Island IPA, then Stella, and rapidly downhill from there. It is worth visiting for the ornate, historic buildings on the tour, but aside from that, drink your free beer and move on to better breweries, which are very easy to find.
