Budweiser has a new beer called Freedom Reserve Red Lager, and it’s based on a recipe written by George Washington in 1757. It uses real molasses, which isn’t very common in beer today, and it’s on sale from now through the end of September. Sure, Budweiser is now owned by a multinational conglomerate based in Belgium . . . but this still might be the MOST AMERICAN BEER they’ve ever made.
Budweiser just announced their newest beer . . . the Freedom Reserve Red Lager. And it’s based on a beer recipe by none other than George Washington. Washington wrote the recipe in his military journal in 1757, with the title, quote, “To Make Small Beer.” It’s not super complicated, but it does include real molasses, which isn’t a common beer ingredient these days . . . and it has very specific instructions for how long to brew it, heat it, and cool it.
It’s hitting stores right now, and it’ll be on sale through the end of September.
