One of the most beloved St. Louis holiday traditions is absolutely glowing thanks again to NECA contractor PayneCrest Electric and its IBEW workforce.  The historic Anheuser-Busch brewery south of Downtown St. Louis tapped PayneCrest to install its creative holiday lighting display.  Tours of the decorative and brilliant display began on November 18th and will continue until December 30th.  It includes a 50-foot digital tree and a 22-foot tree, a “dazzling light show," and Yule Groove performances. The "state-of-the-art light display" extends the length of the brewery. Learn more.
