Just a half hour from downtown Napa, the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tour in Fairfield is a fun and educational day trip. We recommend that you opt for the Beermaster Tour, for a true behind-the-scenes look at how Budweiser is made and packaged. You will gather in the gift shop, where you can peruse some memorabilia and get a sense of how this company has been producing beer for over 150 years. This extensive tour will include the immense vats where the hops are brewed, the Lager Cellar, Packaging Facility and Finishing Cellar, including a sample directly from a Finishing Tank (bring a jacket, it gets cold)! The finale of the tour is a tasting of their varied brews, including limited edition brews of Stella Artrois, Shock Top and Michelob. The Brewmaster Tour is $25 or $10 for ages 13-20 (does not include tasting). Reservations can be made by calling (707) 429-7595 or emailing Tours start at 10 am and 2 pm. 3101 Busch Drive, Fairfield.  •
