Love where you live....the Brewery

We have lived like tourists in our hometown lately.

Visiting places like the Botanical Gardens, History Museum, and the Zoo.

This weekend we had a special celebration. happy birthday My not-so-baby-sister grew up recently.

I took it as my duty to take her out on the town.

One of the do-not-miss spots was St. Louis’ pride and joy. our pride and joy I think St. Louis is known for two things….
a rapper with a band-aid addiction and a King. the king What’s better than beer?  Free beer. a tour The tour is free and lasts about an hour.  It is chock full’o history and oh yea…BEER.

At the end of the tour you get two glasses of the freshest beer you’ll ever taste.
I assume that’s what my sister was there for.
I was there for the pretty buildings. the clock spacer one the little trolley There were about a million different buildings to see and they all served a different purpose, the first building was the large aging room where the beer gets all of its delicious flavor.  Want to hear the craziest part?  Those tanks were stacked six high.  To drink just one of those tanks you would have to drink a beer an hour everyday for over 130 years.  Then you would have quite a beer belly. i could drink that We also got to see where they jump in giant vats and mash all the hops up ala Lucille Ball.  Ok so maybe that doesn’t actually happen….but mashing does. like moonshine Big surprise, this building was huge as well.
If I had to guess I’d say twenty stories. a freaking huge building Then there were of course, more pretty buildings. spacer two One of the last stops was the factory.  It was…take a guess….huge.

This is where the magic happens, they bottle and can and keg all that tasty goodness.  I so wanted to sing the Laverne & Shirley theme song, if only I had a big glove.  Maybe a neck scarf and a cardigan. makin brewskies On the way out I decided I need a green door somewhere in my life.
I can’t imagine why… i want green doors Our trip would not have been complete with out a family photo.
Then this happened. a family of funny faces I wish I could thank that man personally.

Have you had any hometown fun lately?

    I don’t drink but I think I’d really enjoy that tour. I’ve mentioned before that I LOVE World of Coca Cola in Atlanta so I bet Bud would be right up my alley.

    Are you a lefty or do you just wear your watch on the right to confuse people? 😉

      Hahaha dang you got an eye for detail! I have a tattoo on my wrist that I have to cover for work. So I wear my watch on my right wrist for work and now it has just become a habit 🙂

      Tim is a lefty though!!! But he still wears his watch on the right-meaning correct arm 🙂
