I picked up my packet early and then headed over to the brewery for the free tour. The Brew House was built in 1891-92. The structure is on the National Register of Historic Places and the complex is a National Historic Landmark. The tour took you through the history of the Budweiser brand and the brewing and packaging process. It was pretty cool. The bonus is at the end of the tour you get two free beers. That's always fun.
Afterwards I took a cab over to Soulard to meet Jon and his lovely girlfriend Mandie at International Tap House for the game. It was a great game ending well for St. Louis but not without a little controversy. Needless to say St. Louis is still partying as I type this post (12:45 am) and our Boston friends look forward to a little revenge tomorrow.
Time for bed. 7 am race. Details and more pics tomorrow.
