One of the biggest breweries in the U.S. is inviting you to come check out the behind-the-scenes, and you shouldn’t miss it. The last time Budweiser opened its doors for summer tours was in 2015, and these limited tours sold out fast. If you didn’t make it to one of the Budweiser brewery tours three years ago, now’s your chance.
9 Locations, Endless Experiences
Though the Fort Collins, Colorado, location is where the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales West Coast Team resides, all six Budweiser Brewery Experience spots around the country will be open for your browsing from June 1 to September 2. The tours will take place on select Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout this time frame.
Guests ages 21 and older pay $25 for the Brewery Experience at their nearby Budweiser brewery (locations below), and guests ages 13 to 20 get in for $10. Those of legal drinking age also get free beer samples and two large pints with the beer of your choice. Not bad for a weekend outing.
On the tours, you will get the chances to learn about Budweiser’s signature 7-Step Brewing Process that was created and perfected more than 100 years ago. This is the process the company uses to make some of the most popular beers in America. Consistency and quality are key, and Budweiser has them down to seven steps.
Budweiser Brewery Experience Tour Locations
Each brewery location has its own story. From the historic architecture of the St. Louis brewery to the latest brewing technology used at the other locations, each tour center has its own tale to tell. Depending on the location you visit, the experience options range from the Complimentary Tour, Day Fresh Tour, Beer School, Beermaster Tour, History Tour and The Biergarten.
Here’s where you’ll be able to tour a Bud brewery:
- Los Angeles, CA

Head on the Beermaster Tour in Cartersville to explore the art of brewing. You’ll get to see how the pros brew Budweiser, plus you’ll see the lagering and finishing cellars and packaging. You’ll even get the freshest beer you’ve ever had—a sample directly from a finishing tank! This experience lasts about 60 to 90 minutes, and closed-toe shoes are required for safety purposes.
