Do the tour and hit the microbrew/restaurant in the city I think it's called the Tap Room.

If you've never done it, go to Anheuser-Busch, it's neat, even if Budweiser isn't your thing.

+1 on the buttwiper tour. We did it last time we were there. Pretty awesome to see the scale at which they brew at. Plus you get free beer at the end. Freeeeeeeeeeeee...
I know there are some other good ones, just haven't had a chance to sample them.

+1 on Schalfly. There are two locations, Tap Room (pub vibe) downtown and Bottleworks (modern brewery vibe) in Maplewood.

Two of my other favorites:

Urban Chestnut Brewing - Lots of neat beers to taste; haven't found a bad one yet. Food is snacky tasting type stuff, not dinner.

Ferguson Brewing - A big variety of good beer and great food. There's a great custard/ice cream shop up the street for dessert.

There are also a bunch of new micro-brew places that opened in the last 6 months that I haven't made it to. Plenty of opportunities to explore.

+1 to Shlafly

The Butweiser tour is worth going on if Inbev hasn't shut it down as a cost savings. In college i went on it every time I was in St. Lou, They used to have most anything bud made including their foreign beers so its not like you have to drink bud light

Ofallon brewery doesn't have a taproom. I like square one brewery after Schlafley tap room.

+1 on Schlafly Bottleworks, and there's one in Old Town St. Charles, but their name escapes me at the moment. AB tour is always a good bet.

+1 on Schlafly and Urban.

AB worth the trip if you've never been.
