Default St Louis Breweries to visit?

I'm heading to St Louis at the end of this month, and I'll have most of Sunday available to site see, and wanted to ask what breweries/mircobreweries do you guys consider must see places?

Budweiser is actually awesome(free tour and beer), Schlafly, Square One brewery and distillery(small but good beer and real good food). Those are the ones I can vouch for, St. Louis is a cool town with a good beer scene.

I got a list a few weeks ago from one of the food and drink writers here in St. Louis of all of the breweries in the area.

1. Anheuser-Busch (Soulard)
2. Buffalo Brewing Co. (midtown)
3. Cathedral Square Brewing Co. (midtown)
4. Square One Brewery & Distillery (Lafayette Square)
5. Six Row Brewing Co. (midtown)
6. Trailhead Brewing Co. (St. Charles)
7. St. Louis Brewery / Schlafly (downtown Tap Room and Maplewood Bottleworks)
8. Highlands Brewery & Restaurant (Kirkwood)
9. Augusta Brewing Co.(Augusta)
10. Ferguson Brewing Co. (Ferguson)
11. Amalgamated Brewing Co. (Benton Park - the Stable)
12. O'Fallon Brewery (O'Fallon, Mo.)
13. Morgan Street Brewery & Restaurant (Laclede's Landing)
14. Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. (midtown)
15. Second Shift Brewing Co. (New Haven)
16. Crown Valley Brewery (Ste. Genevieve)
17. Charleville Microbrewery & Vineyard (Ste. Genevieve):
Coming this summer:
18. Perennial Artisan Ales (South Carondelet)
19. The Civil Life Brewing Co. (Tower Grove South)
20. 4 Hands Brewing Co. (near Soulard)

So far, I've been to Morgan Street, Schlafly, and Trailhead. I've had a few of O'Fallon's beers, and will probably hit Second Shift, Tin Mill (Hermann, MO) and Augusta sometime this month. I really like Morgan Street's beers and food. Schlafly has a few cask aged beers on tap too.

Check out stlhops.com

That blog tells you what is on tap and were. If you are going to be here this weekend, might as well get tickets to herritagefest thats going on. You can sample all the local brewery's wares.

OT, but I am not too impressed with Tin Mill's offerings.

I'd really recommend the Budweiser tour. Gives a good perspective of the gigantic scale on which they brew and you walk through the stables and a nice museum in the lobby. Totally free, and you don't have to worry so much about hours, it's 9-5 Mon-Sat and 11:30-5 on Sunday. Then try to go to one more of those listed above, I have not been to any but the girl and I are going to a few when she gets back from studying abroad.

Plus, the beer they offer in the A/B Brewery tasting room is infinitely better than the stuff you get at the grocery store. Even the Bud Light has a fresh hopped taste and aroma you just can't get in a pastuerized lager that's months past it's bottle date. Plus they have alot of regional, seasonal, and even small batch and experimental beers that you will be amazed come out of the big evil A/B brewery!

I'd also recommend the AB tour if you have time. It's a very historic brewery and well worth the visit.

I'd recommend Urban Chestnut and Six-Row. They're pretty close to each other.

Another one coming this summer is Exit 6 in Cottleville (St. Charles County).

I'd probably skip on Trailhead also. The wife brought home a mixed 6 pack a couple weeks ago and I was not impressed. But, "to each his own".
