Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tour .... designed for photography.
A special brewery tour for JCC has been designed to get you on the brew floor and close to equipment and personnel. You don't have to shoot through the glass on this tour. This time it's all about the photography, not all about the beer......but you may enjoy a brew after the tour.
Special Photographers Tour
This isn't the regular tour about how to brew beer, info about hops, etc., usually conducted by the brewery. They understand we want to take pictures and that is how this tour has been structured. You will be right next to vats, machinery, bottling lines, etc., and you will be allowed to spend your tour time photographing.
Our tour is a modified form of the Brewmaster Tour.
Everyone must have a Driver's License or State identification.
You must wear proper shoes for safety reason or you will be denied entrance.
- Closed Toe
- Closed Heel
- Flat (No Heels)
Laced-up shoes with sure grip soles are highly recommended. Pretend you going to run at the Y.
Free Parking – Choose the parking lot on the right as you face the brewery.
Walk to the green gazebo and follow the path to the entrance.
We'll meet by Larry (Clydesdale sculpture) on the path to the entrance at 9:45. If you are late, walk past Larry to the entrance straight ahead.
(Special Shoes see must-read note). Temperatures change dramatically from hot areas to cool areas, so a light jacket is recommended.
You will be walking through the brewery for approx two hours. Up and down and on steel mesh and even slippery surfaces.
Tripods and backpacks and camera bags are allowed. You might consider— lighter is better. You will photograph in a working brewery that runs 24/7. This would make for interesting photography. But. . . Please be aware of your surroundings, especially if carrying a tripod and/or backpack. Walkers are allowed but leave the Gemeinhardt carts at home, please.
Cost of the tour has been reduced for JCC members from $30.00 to $22.00.
