ST. LOUIS, MO (SLFP.com), May 13, 2013 - Anheuser-Busch will be opening a new biergarten at its St. Louis Brewery. The biergarten will be adjacent to the brewery's tour center at 12th and Lynch Streets, and will be open to the public by mid-summer.
The new biergarten will be a celebration of beer and food, and will serve an exceptional variety of Anheuser-Busch beers, including 17 on draught. The facility will also feature special beer tastings, including a special Brewmaster's Tasting every day at 3 p.m. - the same time Anheuser-Busch brewmasters from around the country taste beer each day to make sure it is of the highest quality and consistency.
Guests will learn about beer styles, how to pour and present beer and how to properly pair beer with food. Food options will include a limited menu initially, with a full menu featuring grilled meats, small sandwiches and other light fare to be offered later this year. Adding to the educational experience, all beer will be served in appropriate glassware for its beer style, and other books and merchandise will be available to purchase.
"As a fifth generation brewmaster, I could not be more excited about this amazing new biergarten," said Peter Kraemer, Anheuser-Busch brewmaster. "St. Louis has a brewing tradition dating back more than 200 years, and we've been proud to be part of the city's great brewing tradition. The new biergarten will allow us to expand the education we offer our guests, all while giving them an amazing beer and food experience in a gorgeous setting reminiscent of the biergartens that were common in St. Louis in the 1800s."
Visitors will be welcomed to the biergarten by a familiar sight: the 18-foot bright red 'B' that once stood over the Anheuser-Busch brewery as part of the beloved neon Budweiser sign will now permanently reside in the biergarten. The previous sign was removed in February to make way for a new, energy-efficient LED sign.
Guests will be able to enjoy the biergarten before or after brewery tours or any time during operating hours. There will be no charge for admission, and the facility will be open until early evening. Specific hours of operation and other details will be announced soon.
"Enhancing our brewery experience with an outdoor biergarten adds another opportunity to expand our connection with our guests," said Julia Mize, vice president of experiential marketing for Anheuser-Busch. "St. Louis has a rich beer culture - something we've taken great pride in helping to build - and we're looking forward to elevating the brewery experience for guests to enjoy for years to come."
Anheuser-Busch brewery tours have been one of the most popular tourist attractions in St. Louis since tours began in 1887. Each year, the St. Louis Brewery welcomes guests from around the country to learn about the art and science of brewing beer, the company's heritage which dates to 1852 and the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales. The free tours are available every day and will be unaffected by the construction of the biergarten.
