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.
