Barons of Beer and Distilling Chapter II


We’re celebrating 175 years of St. Louis beer brewing and distilling history throughout the year, and “Beer Barons Chapter II – Suppliers to Brewers” continues the story of brewers and distillers by highlighting barons that bridge the gap between early pioneers of the industry and the time when St. Louis was recognized as a booming center for producing beer and spirits. Barons highlighted at this event are Anthony (Tony) Faust, Max & Frank Feuerbacher, Anton, Frank, & Henry Griesedieck, Tobias Spengler, and Gustavus Steinwender.

Step back in with time us as we celebrate our resident barons with walking tours though the Cemetery, great food, music, and samples of beer, spirits, and wine. Engage with experts from local breweries and distilleries about time honored techniques of their trades and gain a deeper appreciation of their time-honored craft.

Tickets are $30 per person. You can pay online now or at the event.
