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.
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!
The tour is great, even if you'd never buy a bud (like me) at the bar/store. The scale of everything there is very impressive. If you've played factorio you'd enjoy this tour. I'd only ever toured craft (admittedly some fairly large craft) breweries, but seeing the other macro side was fun. Plus, you get to go see the Clydesdale horses, and if you're lucky, you'll get to meet a sweet old man and his dalmatian that's wearing a winter jacket. Disclaimer we didn't actually talk to the old man or his dog but we're assuming they're both great.
I would highly recommend this even if you don't like been. The guide ( I think Jeff was his name) was funny and informative. I would suggest adding some bi-lingual guides as well!
