Join Us at Our Annual Historic Beer Barons Tour

It’s here! Our 10th Annual Beer Barons Tour is set for Saturday, September 25, and Sunday, September 26, 2021, at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum.
Spend a relaxing afternoon outdoors in Wildwood Valley Gardens with music, local beer, wine, and refreshments. Enjoy stories of St. Louis’ Beer Heritage from Cameron Collins, author of “Distilled History” and Chris Naffziger, architectural historian, editor of St. Louis Patina, and Archives Researcher/Recorder of Deeds for the City of St. Louis. Stroll at your leisure through Wildwood Valley Gardens’ fall colors or join a tour led by our Horticulturists.
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. We have created this event to share their stories and celebrate the new and emerging craft beer movement in our community.
