When it comes to craft breweries & wineries in St. Louis, we have it good (just this year St. Louis was ranked as the Best Beer Scene in America by USA Today). From the picturesque wineries just outside of the St. Louis in Augusta, Ste. Genevieve, Hermann, and Illinois to the trendy microbreweries you'll find scattered across town, there's a place to sip & savor for everyone.
Our local winery & brewery scene is so popular that it's become a favorite theme for our party bus rentals and limo excursions. BEST guests enjoy going on chauffeured winery and brewery tours with us, so they can fully relax, enjoy the scenery, and sip on some of the best beer and wine our city has to offer. Best of all, no one has to drive or worry about parking (and, of course, you can bring along your own beverages to enjoy along the way).
Read on to pick up a few planning tips for your winery or brewery tour with us.
Winery Tour Tips:
Wineries and wine bars are sprinkled across St. Louis and beyond. We recommend selecting one or two must-visit wineries, then opt for additional fun stops that are along the route. You can check out some of our picks for most beautiful wineries near St. Louis here. Keep in mind that some wineries do offer free wine tastings, however some do have a tasting fee. If you're headed out on a day-trip with a large group, you may want to call ahead to make a reservation.
Craft Brewery Tour Tips:
There are so many amazing craft breweries in St. Louis, it's hard to pick just a few to visit for a day-long tour! Some breweries are on the smaller side, so larger groups may want to arrive early or call in advance (craft breweries with smaller spaces include Side Project Cellar and Heavy Riff Brewing Company). New to the craft brewery scene in St. Louis is Bluewood Brewing on Cherokee Street in downtown St. Louis. Don't forget to bring along your refillable growler (or purchase a new one from a brewery), so you can take home your favorite beer to enjoy later.
