Budweiser’s New Beer Is Based on George Washington’s Recipe
Remember when we teamed up with Bent River Brewing Co. to turn George Washington's original beer recipe into a modern day craft brew? Now Budweiser is getting in on the action.
Budweiser just announced their newest beer: the Freedom Reserve Red Lager. 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, "To Make Small Beer."
As we've already found out, it's not super complicated. The recipe includes 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 with a portion of the proceeds going towards Folds of Honor.
