2014: Anheuser-Busch Tour
During our Spring Break trip to the St Louis area I wanted to do something that I had never done before – visit the Anheuser-Busch Factory Tour. I should be clear that I don’t drink alcohol and am not endorsing drinking alcohol. But Luca, being from Germany, I knew would be interested in this tour, and I wanted to see the Clydesdales.
- Arrive early as tours can fill up quickly, and later tours tend to be much larger, and it is harder to hear the tour guide.
- Be aware that at two points in the tour they will provide alcohol to the tour members. During the tour a sample is offered, and at the end of the tour drink cards are given for people to make their own selection. The drink cards can also be exchanged for a soda drink for the kids, or for teetotalers like me :).
For this spread I had to use red to match the colors of the Ahneuser-Busch company! I mounted the photos that I took on a black background, as well as the framed picture that was taken of us on the tour. I also included on the page: a coaster from the sampling room, bottle bookmark bought in the gift store, a promotional brochure, the Budweiser logo from the store bag (mounted on black cardstock), and a piece of Beechwood that my son picked up off the floor of the brewing rooms which is used to increase the action of the yeast in the brewing process. I used the black stripes to help break up the single tone red of the page, and to make the page more visually appealing.
