About Us


Angie and Cowboy

When Larry "Cowboy" Proemsey and Angie Holmes took on the restoration of the Historic John B. Busch Brewery Event Center, they went all in.  Their goal was to create an event space in their area of Franklin County that would rival any spot in surrounding counties.  "This spot has such beautiful history, and we fell in love with it right away," states Holmes. "Seeing it flourish with so many beautiful events, while staying true to the history of Washington, Missouri, is really a dream come true."  

The event center not only offers a variety of halls, each with its own atmosphere and private spaces for you to rent, you get an entire package including the event space, tables, chairs, linens, an event coordinator, and bartenders.
