CHAPTER III: Building Bigger | Beer Barons 2024

We’re celebrating 175 years of St. Louis beer brewing and distilling history throughout the year, and “Beer Barons Chapter III – Building Bigger” will pay tribute to barons who helped the brewing industry in St. Louis navigate a pivotal period and build a foundation for national and global leadership with their respective brands. Barons highlighted at this event are William J. Lemp, Ellis Wainwright, Eberhard Anheuser, William F. Nolker, Joseph Griesedieck, and David Grace Nicholson.

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 on sale now! We hope you join us for this unforgettable historic event at St. Louis’s only grand historic rural cemetery of the 19th century, and Missouri’s only Level III Arboretum.
