Nestled in the historic Soulard neighborhood of St. Louis, Anheuser-Busch's largest and oldest brewery site was selected based on its access to the Mississippi River, the large presence of German immigrants in the 1800’s, and the natural cave formations that were used to store beer prior to artificial refrigeration. 

The Beer Museum Tour will take us down the long and colorful history of Anheuser-Busch as well as experience the impressive architecture of three National Historic Landmarks. We will also visit the historic Old Lyon Schoolhouse building on the St. Louis campus, which is home to a modern museum housing nearly 400 unique historical items from the vast Anheuser-Busch archives.
