Located just south of down town St. Louis City, Anheuser Busch Brewery is an iconic landmark in the St. Louis area, most easily seen by the smoke stacks that can be seen all over the city and the red glowing sign on the building. The brewery was opened in 1852 and is famous for its lager style beers using beechwood to age the beer in. The brewery is a national landmark and free public tours are available almost every day of the year.
The brewery keeps its iconic Clydesdales houses at its headquarters as the historic horses were originally used to pull the wagons to distribute the beer across the region. The brewery also has its historical Brew House, which opened in 1891-1892, and is notable for its chandeliers and intricate iron work.
Anheuser-Busch was sold to InBev in October 2015 and the merger was complete and the new business is called AB InBev. The new company became the largest brewer in the world. AB InBev is a major employer in the St. Louis area.
The Anheuser-Busch Brewery in St. Louis is mostly unchanged due to the merger with InBev, and it still makes Bud Light, Budweiser, and Michelob products everyday, along with the other beers and drinks that the brewery makes.
