Eighth Annual Historic Beer Barons Tour
Saturday, October 12 & Sunday, October 13, 2019

The final resting places of many of the early St. Louis beer barons such as Uhrig, Lemp, Wainwright, Anheuser, Busch, and Griesedieck can be found at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum. Their monuments speak of family fortunes won and lost, and how legacies intertwined as breweries merged, burned, closed, and re-opened.

Have a relaxing afternoon outdoors in Wildwood Valley Gardens with music, local beer, wine, and refreshments.  Enjoy the stories of St. Louis’ Beer Heritage during the bus tours.  Our staff horticulturists will also be giving tours of Wildwood Valley Gardens.

Proceeds from the Beer Barons tour benefit the cemetery’s efforts in conservation, education, and community programming.
