Event description

Description

Dan Fuller is the resident historian at Bellefontaine Cemetery in North St. Louis where hundreds of famous St. Louisians are buried. This lecture entitled Beer Barons dives into the lives and legacies of some of the most prominent beer makers the city has had to offer.

Beer making has been part of the St. Louis scene since mid-1800. The city became a leader in beer production because of our location, lots of clean water, and unique cave systems used to lager the beer and a heavy migration of Germans whom helped make as well as consume the product. Over 60 Beer Barons are buried at Bellefontaine. Our presentation will focus on eleven of the more provocative Barons. Some that are well known include: Busch, Anheuser, and Lemp, and some less well known like Max Feuerbacher and William Nolker.

Tickets are free, but required. Max 100.
