The Busch Tour is, without a doubt, a must--come on, its FREE!
You walk in and there's all sorts of displays. Get your ticket from the front desk and then wait around until your tour starts.
When you begin, the first thing you see is the Clydesdales . . . they're so cute! They have one outside and others in a stable. If Scott and Luke are there they are quite camera-friendly and you can get some great shots . . . the other horses don't give you such a nice view . . . unless you desire to see a horse's rear!
Next you move on to the TOP SECRET part where you aren't allowed to take pictures put you do get to see huge containers of ice-cold beer . . . I think the guide said 500,000 6-packs' worth of the stuff was in there--everyone started drooling!
You see several short movies, all the ingredients that beer is made from, and also learn about what Anheiser had to do to stay afloat during Prohibition.
It's maybe a 45-minute downhill walk afterwards to see the production room where you board a trolley to the ever-popular "hospitality room," which has soda to the right and beer to the left. They do ID, but those of you over 21 can sample any two products you'd like. They give you a nice sized portion too--bigger than the soda cups that's for sure! They also have free postcards and pretzels.
After the tour, be sure to stop in the gift shop because they have great things--only the clothing is really overpriced.
Dad will definatly LOVE this tour, and the kids will like the horsies!
