Few cities can tell the story of beer in America like St. Louis can. Cameron Collins, co-author, will come and share the brewing history of St. Louis. In this third edition of St. Louis Brews: The History of Brewing in the Gateway City, you will find hundreds of historical images covering over two hundred years of brewing history. You will hear the stories of lagering caves, malt houses, beer gardens, and famous St. Louis brewers, like Lemp, Anheuser, Busch, and Griesedieck. You’ll also hear how the new craft beer movement is taking brewers into the future. Find out how new St. Louis breweries are being added to the rich history of beer in our fair city. Mr. Collins will be sharing images and maps as well as these stories. St. Louis and the brewing industry have a long and interesting history and it looks like there is no stopping that relationship from going far into the future.
