I was graciously hosted as a guest and participated in the Anheuser-Busch Beermaster Tour, but all opinions are my own.
While I’ll admit to loving more bubbly than beer, there is something unique about touring a brewery. It’s fascinating to meet the brewers, see the passion they put into each bottle and learn about how beer is made. I’ve officially been on four brewery tours previously, but nothing tops the scale of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Beermaster Tour in Cartersville, Georgia.
Once a month, Anhesuer-Busch opens their brewery to guests for an official tour. I didn’t even know that they had a brewery in Cartersville before taking the tour. Over twenty of their beloved brands are brewed and bottled at this facility. It’s an hour north of Atlanta and a must-do Sunday afternoon activity for any beer lover.
The tour takes you through the art of brewing beer and breaks down the process. Our tour guide explained what makes the Anheuser-Busch brands unique from others – like starting with the purest of water. The two hour experience walks you through the brewing facility. The large scale brewing is incredible to witness behind-the-scenes.
Guests who are 21+ can sample directly from the finishing tank. It’s the freshest beer that you can only taste on the tour. After the sampling, guests can see the mass production of packaging. The bottling process is mesmerizing as thousands of bottles line up to be filled with product.
I loved learning that this facility is the only one to can water for emergency situations and natural disasters. They always have a supply of water ready for donation to the Red Cross. I remember hearing about that when Hurricane Irma hit – so it’s awesome to know that they are giving back to the community.
Each guest receives a commemorative Budweiser class baseball cap, with Cartersville embroidered on the back. Of course, the tour wouldn’t be complete without a cold one. Each 21+ guest gets a bottle of beer to enjoy at the end of the tour.
