Anheuser-Busch Brewery Holiday Lights – Fun for the Whole Family! #ABHolidayLights #STL



The holiday season is upon us and my family loves discovering new and fun things to do as a family in St. Louis! We were so excited to visit the Anheuser-Busch Brewery for their Holiday Lights experience!

What is the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Holiday Lights?

The Anheuser-Busch Brewery Holiday Lights Display in St. Louis is in it’s 28th year but it’s better than ever with more lights, live music, fire pits for roasting s’mores, and complimentary seasonal beer samples for adults 21 and older.

You’ll be able to enjoy walking along the grounds of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery as you view the buildings that are decorated with thousands of lights! Local musicians play holiday music and you can make sure to snap a picture of the famous Clydesdales!

What’s there to do for kids?

The Anheuser-Busch Brewery Holiday Lights Display is VERY family friendly! While there is of course beer for the adults to sample, kids will enjoy seeing all of the lights, drinking hot chocolate, making s’mores {which are $1 for one}, decorating ornaments and seeing the Clydesdales! Kids of all ages will love stepping into step into an inflatable snow globe for a unique photo opportunity.

It’s also VERY stroller friendly! We were able to push our double stroller along the streets and sidewalks with no issues.
