Both Budweiser and Jim Beam are iconic American brands, and now the two have joined forces to to create Bud’s newest beer, the Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager.
Just as the name suggests, Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager is a more elevated take on your tradition can of Bud. The new beer boasts a completely different formula than traditional Budweiser, and was crafted at Budweiser’s St. Louis test brewery by brewmaster Pete Kraemer. The beer itself consists of a classic American amber lager, which has been "brewed with two-row barley and aged on charred American oak barrel staves that had previously been used by Jim Beam." The result is a malty, nutty beer, with slight vanilla notes from the barrel staves. A subtle bourbon flavor also comes through, for a full-bodied beer that is perfect for late-summer sipping.
