Budweiser is throwing it back! The limited-edition 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager hit shelves this week!
The new brew is inspired by a pre-Prohibition recipe created by Adolphus Busch. As stated on their site, Busch “created and brewed a special Amber Lager for his friends and local community to enjoy. Due to the onset of Prohibition in 1920, the beer didn’t have a chance to be distributed widely outside the St. Louis area… until now. Beginning today, Budweiser is releasing this historically inspired recipe nationwide to celebrate the Repeal of Prohibition.”
How awesome is that! A TASTE of history! The Repeal Reserve Amber Lager is served in a vintage style shorter bottle and has a “light, hoppy aroma and a rich caramel-malt taste.” Oh yeah, in true pre-Prohibition fashion it also has a higher alcohol percentage, 6.1% vs. the usual 5%.
