One of Fort Collins's leading employers -- and its top tourist attraction -- this Anheuser-Busch brewery produces some six million barrels of beer each year, distributed to 10 Western states. The 1 1/4-hour tours leave from the visitor center and gift shop, and include exhibits on the history of the Anheuser-Busch company, nostalgic displays of ads from the 1950s and other periods, and a complete look at the brewing process, from the huge brew kettles to the high-speed packaging plant that fills 2,000 cans per minute. The tours end at the tasting room with a free sample.
