Budweiser Reserve Black Lager
Today, Budweiser and Jim Beam Bourbon unveiled Budweiser Reserve Black Lager, a limited-supply brew with an ABV of 7.1 percent. This specialty beer marks the second collaboration between Budweiser and Jim Beam, joining Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager, which is back by popular demand.
Budweiser Reserve Black Lager is aged for a bolder flavor on six-year Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves. Black Lager has a dark auburn color, an oaky aroma with notes of coffee and chocolate, a toasted taste of malt, and a deliciously soft finish.
“Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager proved that when Budweiser and Jim Beam collaborate, good things happen. For the second collaboration between Bud and Beam, we wanted to brew something unique that would excite both beer lovers and bourbon aficionados. Budweiser Reserve Black Lager is a bold, bourbon-forward beer that’s perfect for the holidays.”
– Ricardo Marques, VP of Marketing Core & Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch
