Anheuser Busch Tour

St Louis is the HQ for this huge company founded in 1850.

Social distancing was non-existent but masks were required and their proper use nicely enforced. Just about the first we’ve seen since leaving in early April.

Clydesdales:

The Beechwood Aging Cellars. Each big tank held 1.2 million 12-ounce servings of beer. And there were MANY tanks.

The bottling/labeling/packaging process:

The final step in the process is … consumption. As we left the bottling area, we were given a bottle of Bud Light that had come off the line this morning. Then, you got to choose a 16-oz beverage of your choice. Alas, no Stella Artois, which has been a part of the A-B family since 2008. Then you entered this pavilion/bar/restaurant.

The lunch menu looked pretty good. The appetizers were excellent. Salted Bavarian pretzels with cheese sauce and spicy mustard:

Toasted ravioli:

Another really fun day. Planned at the last minute because the weather made bike riding a poor choice.
