Brewing for Independence

Thursday, July 2, 2015 | Anchor, Anheuser Busch, Rogue, Troegs, Victory, Widmer


With the 4th of July being this Saturday, you’ve likely made plans, either for your own party or to attend another’s. Whether you’re holding your own event or going to a friend’s/family’s, you can’t forget what goes best with BBQ and patriotism; a cold, refreshing beverage. Let’s go through a list of the best options to put in your cooler.

Anchor Liberty Ale – This effervescent IPA is crisp, piney and balanced perfectly with a firm backbone of sweet malts. It was first brewed as a celebration of the Bicentennial of Paul Revere’s famous ride to Lexington and Concord.

Rogue American Amber – Caramel and roasted malt character is accentuated by assertive hops in this American Amber Ale. Quite drinkable, a great craft brew for the uninitiated and craft fiends alike. As another plus, it’s available in cans for ease of cleanup and safe outdoor parties.

Victory Summer Love – This American Blonde Ale just screams summer with its bright, floral hops and bit of honey malts. It pairs well with pretty much any sort of grilled dish you can think of, but stands well enough on its own. So good there won’t be any leftovers. Now available in cans for the first time.

Budweiser – It’s a classic choice for the Fourth, and particularly in their beautiful Statue of Liberty emblazoned cans. Fill up a cooler (or two) with this and you’ll be sure to make a great party.

If you want to put a twist on the usual, there are some unique ways to incorporate beer into the festivities. Chances are when you were a kid, your drink of choice for the 4th was lemonade. Why not harken back to the good old days with a more adult version. Check out this list of shandies, including a few recipes to make on your own.

Another unique way to incorporate beer would be to add it to your cooking. Here’s a recipe for beer can chicken, with the suggestion of either Victory’s Prima Pils or Troeg’s Sunshine Pilsner. Or if you’re looking for an all-purpose marinade or mop, try this recipe and use either Troegenator or Widmer Bros’ Drop Top Amber Ale.

Fresh Fruit Pairing

Thursday, July 2, 2015 | Anheuser Busch, Ithaca, Lancaster Brewing, Widmer


As beer drinkers become more familiar with the pairing options that their beverage of choice affords them, they’ve explored all sorts of the world’s entrees, cheeses, and even desserts. One food group is often used in the art of brewing, but not so often spoken of as a food to pair with beer. Fruit offers a healthy, delicious partner to many brews, and beer can often complement the sweet, tangy, bitter and juicy flavors associated with fruit, either as a beverage on the side or as a part of the dish. Here’s some fruity beers that are easy to pair with.

Ithaca Apricot Wheat

Pair With: Peach, nectarine, apricot, plum

Serving Suggestion: Try making popsicles with peach or nectarine chunks frozen inside this beer.

Lancaster Strawberry Wheat

Pair With: Strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry

Serving Suggestion: Serve alongside berry pies, tarts or cobblers, or add just a splash to put a little punch into a fruit pie.

Widmer Lemon Shandy

Pair With: Peach, orange, lemon, grapefruit, strawberry

Serving Suggestion: Throw in some fruit to rest at the bottom to add flavor, as well as a tasty snack at the end of the glass.

Wild Blue

Pair With: Blueberry, strawberry

Serving Suggestion: This very-blueberry flavored beer would go well with fresh fruit-topped ice cream, or a pie topped with either whipped or ice cream.

Cheers for the Winter Olympics

Thursday, February 6, 2014 | Anheuser Busch, Carlsberg, Crabbie's, Erdinger, Fuller's, Kirin, Leffe


The Sochi Winter Olympics are underway, so it’s time to start thinking about who’s going to win which events. The Olympics are not only about rooting on our own nation’s athlete’s, but also coming together and finding common ground between countries. So why not celebrate other’s wins as well by cracking open a beer with which to toast the gold medalists? We’ve got some suggestions on what to use to toast as each country collects medals.

United States- Budweiser: They are, after all, the official beer sponsor of the U.S. team.

Germany – Erdinger: This exclusively wheat beer brewery offers a taste of its country of origin in every mouthful.

Belgium – Leffe: You’ve got nine great choices to choose from here, so you can’t go wrong.

Denmark – Carlsberg: Started in 1847, this brewery makes a pale lager that’s as refreshing as it is standard.

England – Fullers: Fuller’s is a staple in England, and for good reason. London Pride, ESB and their London Porter are all good choices.

Japan – Kirin: Another old brewery out of Tokyo, they’ve got a pale ale that is ‘number one!’

Ireland – O’Hara’s: An Irish classic, with a stout, Irish red and more than a handful of other great brews.

Here’s to safe and well-played games!

America’s Beer Supports America’s Heroes

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 | Anheuser Busch, Beer News


Budweiser is showing their support for the troops by donating several cents from every case of their Red, White and Blue cans or bottles sold this summer to Folds of Honor Foundation. Using Blippar to scan the red bowtie on the case, you can also vote on your state to be one of the ten to receive $100,000 in scholarship funds in 2014.

Additionally, Gretz Beer Co. is partnering with distributors to make a 5 cent match per Budweiser case throughout the month of July. You can also text the word “HERO” to 839863, and Gretz and Budweiser will donate 25 cents to the Folds of Honor Foundation, no purchase necessary.

Folds of Honor support military families by helping spouses and dependents of wounded or fallen soldiers with education costs through scholarships. They have a number of different scholarship options, all to help dependents of soldiers killed or disabled in war receive the education they deserve.

So what are you waiting for? Crack open a case of Budweiser and help bring a future to the spouses and children of our troops.

Budweiser Project 12 Variety Pack Finalized

Wednesday, September 19, 2012 | Anheuser Busch


And then there were three.

“Project 12” started in the early spring when Budweiser’s 12 brewmasters across America were asked to write a unique beer recipe worthy of the Budweiser name. After internal discussion and debate, six of the recipes were chosen to be brewed in small batches. Now, after a summer-long nationwide sampling effort involving thousands of consumers at dozens of events, U.S. beer drinkers have provided feedback, which helped Budweiser decide which three beers would be available for sale in a limited-edition sampler pack this fall.

Project 12: Limited Edition Sampler Pack

Thursday, July 19, 2012 | Anheuser Busch


Call it a friendly competition, one best argued over a bottle or pint. Its name is “Project 12.” Twelve Anheuser-Busch brewmasters at Budweiser’s 12 geographically dispersed breweries worked together to create their own “tribute” beers to fit the Budweiser brand’s reputation for quality and consistency. The assignment pays homage to Budweiser’s “clean and crisp” taste by using the proprietary yeast directly descended from the original Budweiser yeast culture used by Adolphus Busch in 1876 and still used by Budweiser today.
