History repeats itself each day at 3 p.m. in St. Louis. That's when guests gather at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery for a special Brewmaster’s Tasting. It's also the time that Anheuser-Busch's brewmasters around the country taste their beer to ensure it stays at the highest quality—and worthy of a legacy stretching back to the St. Louis brewery's founding in 1852. Complimentary tours of the 19th Century brewhouse touch on those and other historic details, including a photo op with the Budweiser Clydesdales, who have been the company's mascot ever since they stomped apart the piece of paper that Prohibition was written on. Guides delve further into the brewing process during beermaster tours, and Anheuser-Busch's signature Beer School teaches a 45-minute crash course in beer styles, pouring, and pairing techniques. Pairing skills are also on full, delicious display at The Biergarten, where chefs match beer with seasonal burgers, sandwiches, and other meals.

More than a century ago, the architects of The Lemp Brewery complex faced a problem: how should they keep their beer cold? Refrigerators weren't yet around, and it'd be too difficult to tow an iceberg down from the Arctic. Their solution: going 100 feet underground, where old caves were naturally cool... or so they thought. In fact, the chilly air here wasn't caused by lack of sunlight?it was the result of an ancient curse. Today, visitors can still tour the subterranean brewery, now appropriately known as the Abyss. It's hardly abandoned. Around every turn waits a new monster, none of whom are friendly enough to offer any complimentary growlers. The Abyss is just one of Scarefest's three chilling destinations. Creepyworld houses 12 attractions, including a series of mazes filled with everything from burning cars to ravenous zombies. In another part of town, a haunted house known as The Darkness plunges visitors into a world of terror. In its two-decade history, the haunted house has even shown up on national TV, which is not too bad a gig for a place infested by deranged clowns.

They also infuse wardrobes with a bit of attitude by custom airbrushing illustrations of their clients' favorite sports teams, animals, or Pantone swatches.
