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