The mash “pit” for Budweiser. This is one of the best and fanciest factory tours we ever taken in the US. The price is free and we get to sample two beers at the end of the tour. The kids get their choice of a soft drink, very much to their delight as Linus gets his first taste of Mountain Dew. During the 13 years of prohibition A-B made a soft drink called BEVO - discontinued now, otherwise we would have given the kids that to help with the 1000-mile drive to Black Hills, South Dakota tonight!
