Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery

Located inside a brick-hewn building reminiscent of a grand castle, the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery recounts the history of the company’s former brewery, which dates back to 1844. Visitors tour Pabst’s corporate offices, take photos with a statue of Captain Frederick Pabst, and drink tall pints of the brewery’s concoctions. The gift shop stocks vintage Pabst memorabilia, including steins, shirts, and artwork. Best Place’s halls and courtyards can also be rented for banquets, weddings, and other events.

Customer Reviews

The tour at the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery is a ton of fun! The tour guide also owns many of the remaining buildings from the old Pabst Brewery - his love of history and sharing it with the guests of the brewery makes the tour interesting and educational. Also, the gift shop has lots of great Pabst swagger! I'll definitely be going back!
