In case you did not know, September is National Bourbon Heritage Month. This year, Budweiser decided that they would tip their glasses to honor a fellow member of the industry and celebrate the 85th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition.
Allow us to introduce to you – Budweiser Copper Lager! This new release is a limited edition of the Budweiser Reserve collection like the 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager we wrote about last year.
The first of its kind, Budweiser Copper Lager (6.2% ABV) is a “collaboration brew between two of America’s most iconic brands: Budweiser and Jim Beam.” It is aged on Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves to give it that “… toasted oak aroma, a deliciously nutty taste with caramel rye and vanilla notes, and a smooth finish,” according to the brewers.
And we’ll tell you will make you want to toast routinely from now and most especially on December 5, 2018 – Repeal Day! Stop by your local grocery or liquor store, where you can find Budweiser Copper Lager in 6- and 12-pack 12 oz. heritage glass bottles. These packages will allow you to try and then introduce your friends to the next big thing this fall … And to stock your fridges for all those football watch parties and Repeal Day celebrations.
Plus, for the month of September, you can also toast to the bourbon makers and thank goodness Prohibition failed.
