Brewing a beer is like a successful marriage—it requires patience, some chemistry, and at least 10 tries to get it right. Spark sudsy passion with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get four Beer School admissions at Anheuser-Busch brewery (a $40 value) on 12th and Lynch.
Designed for pint-probing neophytes of the 21-plus persuasion, Beer School opens an interactive window to the world of brewski connoisseury at the historic Anheuser-Busch brewery. A flight master begins your session with a beerscape rundown, including the effects of individual ingredients on the final product, as well as the secret reason behind each draft-filled flagon’s frothy top. The half-hour class also includes ample taste testing in order to differentiate the elemental baseline of Budweiser from other Anheuser-Busch elixirs. Following the class, pupils receive certificates of tasting completion and hop on a complimentary hops tour.
Pegged by TripAdvisor as America's Top Brewery Tour, the breathtaking Anheuser-Busch facility boasts pastoral surrounding grounds as well as intricate architecture and brew history dating back to the company’s founding in 1852. In addition to trekking through the Lager Cellar and Brew House, saucy safari-goers can observe the majestic clan of clydesdale horses.
