Opened in 1970, the Merrimack Brewery is vital to the distribution of fresh beers to locations in the Northeast including Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island and more.
Embedded in the scenic New England countryside, the New Hampshire brewery is one of our most stunning Tour Center locations.
Regardless of the experience you choose, from The Biergarten to our Beermaster Tours, our ambassadors will educate visitors from "Seed to Sip." From the finest ingredients to the finished product, visitors of all ages will immerse themselves in our history and observe how we brew and package Budweiser.
You will also experience a rare, up-close meeting with the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales when you visit the Clydesdale Hamlet. Given to August Busch, Sr. as a gift to celebrate the end of prohibition, sons Adolphus III and August Busch, Jr. presented the first Clydesdale hitch to their father. Since that time, the Clydesdales have become an American symbol of tradition and quality.
We went here over the Holidays last winter. My granddaughter who had just turned 4 loved it. They did a wonderful job decorating the trees & setting out furniture & fire pits for a cozy feel. She wasn't thrilled with the Clydesdale but my husband & I thought they were impressive. The BIGGEST thing that impressed me about this company was their compassion during the recent hurricane season. They stopped production of beer. & began bottling water to be distributed free of charge to the victims.. They are ABSOLUTELY AWESOME.
Place is awesome for everyone. Lots to see. Lot of functions held on the property.
It is a fun place to stop at if you're in the area! Though it is kid-friendly, I don't think the kids on my tour truly appreciated or enjoyed it. I do not recommend bringing kids unless they are interested in beer brewing.
I've lived in Stl most my life, and would list the brewery in the top 10 stl attractions. I just did a tour today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Free beer, and a drink of your choice are provided on the complimentary tour, go check it out!
Very cool! It's awesome to taste new beers here and also see how this historic beer is made! If touring, the stables where they train the Clydesdales is a walk away and definitely cool to see!
