St. Louis Weekend-Outdoor Wednesday-3

Yum
After the shopping trip to St. Charles, we had lunch at a darling restaurant in Benton Park called McLoos Deli. I had the Gobbler and Bob had an Italian sub.





We headed to the Anheuser Busch Brewing Plant to do the tour. I wanted to see the horses, Bob wanted the free beer at the end of the tour! I was not disappointed! The gardens were lovely! They are my Outdoor Wednesday post.





The horses were amazing. I loved seeing Jake, the largest horse in the world at 60 hands and 2,250 pounds! He was gentle, you could tell by his eyes!

This horse was outside the entrance into the museum.





The main office was once the school house in St. Louis. The Busch children went to school there. Once the city decided to give up the school, the company bought it for their administrative offices which were there until 1991.



This horse actually let me pet him!



We saw lots of equipment used to brew the beer, and learned about the process and the history of beer, and then ended the tour at the hospitality center, where we got to try free beer! It was a great tour!
