The three-hour tour, listed as the Sunday Funday Brewery Hop on the merchant's website, kicks off at noon on Sundays. Groups board a 20-passenger bus and then travel to two local microbreweries. Here, tour participants sample one of the brewery's creations. Guides, meanwhile, speak about the history and methods during a behind-the-scenes tour of each location. Each tour participant gets a take-home STL Brewery Hop tasting glass and a 5- to 7-ounce pour at each stop.
STL Brewery Hop
When Lindsey Schaefer moved back to St. Louis, she noticed that something had changed. Microbreweries were popping up everywhere, and she pleasantly found more and more craft beers inside local stores. So, Lindsey created the STL Brewery Hop as a celebration of the city's best brews.
On weekends, a tour bus takes up to 20 passengers to local breweries, where guides speak to the history and operations of each business. They hand out samples, too, of course. A typical hop might sample the Cast Iron Oatmeal Brown of the 4 Hands Brewing Company or Urban Chestnut beer.
