Heritage Festival

Host: St. Louis Brewers Guild

The 11th Annual St. Louis Brewers Heritage Festival is the premiere showcase of the St. Louis beer scene. This festival features over 100 styles of beer from over 50 greater STL area breweries, as well as this year’s Collaboration Festival Beer, home brew club tastings, a Rare Tapping Tent, live music, and great food all in an idyllic setting beneath the Gateway Arch along the Mississippi River. This year also welcomes the inclusion of a very limited number of tickets to an exclusive iTap Riverfront VIP Experience. Attendees of our Evening Session will be treated to a world class fireworks display over the Mississippi River!
