We had reservations for a "Day Fresh Tour", which stopped at the Budweiser Clydesdale stables, the beer aging cellar, the historic brew house, and the Bevo packaging facility. Son Tony had interned on the production line there when he was in college, so he was interested to see the changes that had been made in the last decade.
The last stop of the tour was the Biergarten, where we were able to sample some of the company's products. After that we piled back in the car for a short ride to the Soulard neighborhood, where we had picked out a restaurant where we could get toasted ravioli.
We ordered both meat and spinach artichoke 't-ravs', along with entrees for each person. There were no leftovers. Although we talked about how full we were, there was one more stop to make. It was time for dessert!
The lines can often be long at Ted Drewes, but we were lucky tonight. It took longer to look at the menu and figure out what each of us wanted than it did to order. Just a couple of minutes later we got our sweet treats and found a place in the shade to eat them. When they were gone we agreed they'd been very good, but there'd be no more eating the rest of the night.
