St. Louis Brewers Heritage Festival
This spring, several local breweries got together to celebrate the rich brewing heritage in St. Louis. As a birthplace of the modern brewing industry, we have quite a heritage to celebrate. Brewers of all types were there to enjoy beer and show off their skills. I spoke to a brewmaster from the giant brewery Anheuser-Busch (that’s a local macro-brewery here you might have heard of? They make a product called “Budweiser”) and a member of the local homebrew club. I also got to meet the brothers that founded the ultimate beer lovers Web site and Magazine, The Beer Advocate.
