We passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane Forest, through the Sea of Swirly Twirly Gum Drops, and then walked through the Brewery Lights at Anheuser-Busch St. Louis!
Ok maybe I am a little too excited, and little too into the Christmas movies and music this time of year. We are full swing Christmas Cheer around here after visiting the Brewery Lights last weekend. I have to say this is hands down our family’s number one St. Louis Christmas tradition. We met our best friends and our goddaughter on a Friday night to get the weekend started right!
As always, the Brewery Lights are magical! The historic property is already beautiful, but add some lights and Christmas decor… gorgeous!
New this year, which we loved, is a kid themed area! They had a giant light bright, mini train rides, and big movie screen playing some holiday classics! Hot chocolates for the littles, and some Budweiser for the adults and we were set!
There are multiple options for individuals or groups visiting the Brewery Lights. We had a Fire Pit Fun package that included a buffet for our group inside the Old School House Museum, a private fire pit for s’mores, complimentary beer and soft drinks, and two parking spots. It is definitely the way to go if you have a group of eight!
But there are other options for individuals that include one food and drink item or an individual package for the buffet! Of course inside the Tour Center they also have food and drinks available for purchase! Check their website for all the details and prices!
After some exploring we cozied up to our fire pit to warm up and enjoy some s’mores! There are also fire pits all over for everyone to enjoy! BTR also wanted me to point out that you could grab a pour of Bourbon County Brand Stout while you say hi to the Clydesdales. And I wanted to remind you that the Clydesdales are my favorite. :)
Ok I told BTR I will try to keep our number of trips to the Brewery Lights under 3 this year, but really I think I can sneak in at least 5!
“Buddy the Elf, what your favorite color? Um Brewery Lights, duh!”
This year The Brewery Lights at the Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Brewery are open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday from 5-10 PM.
