Happy National Lager Day!
In honor of National Lager Day, I am delighted to announce today’s prize for Day Ten of the 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways: not just one… not just two…
but TWELVE 3-Packs of Budweiser’s Project 12 2013 beers!
That’s right! Thanks to Budweiser, you can enter to win one of 12 prizes: 3-packs of Budweiser Project 12 Beers.
I had the good fortune of tasting this trio, and have to say that the Pacific NW craft beer snob in me was somewhat impressed. These are great beers to pop open at the end of a long work week, surrounded by good friends, warm fire, and lots of laughs. They go beyond the typical Budweiser, in my opinion.
National Lager Day: December 10, 2013
A National Lager Day survey of more than 600 beer-drinking Americans age 21 and older found, among other fun tidbits:
- Beer drinkers prefer lagers 2-to-1 over pale ales and 3-to-1 over IPAs and stouts.
- Two-thirds of beer drinkers like the crisp flavor of lager more than beers with bitter, sweet or fruity flavors.
So what better way to celebrate National Lager Day, than with a giveaway of some great new lagers?!
ABOUT PROJECT 12
Budweiser’s Project 12 is part of the brewmaster innovation platform that resulted in the introduction of Budweiser Black Crown. Budweiser’s team of brewmasters develop new beer recipes in small batches featuring the signature yeast first used by Adolphus Busch in 1876, but giving each a distinct flavor to highlight the tastes of the region.
The three new beers are named for the ZIP codes where the beers were brewed:
- Batch 94534 (Fairfield, Calif.): Brewed with a unique blend of North Pacific hop varieties, including Cascade and Palisade, this bold, hoppy lager is 5.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) and offers a distinct taste of the American Northwest.
- Batch 23185 (Williamsburg, Va.): Aged on a bed of bourbon barrel staves and vanilla beans, this light amber lager indulges the sweet side and features a 5.5 percent ABV.
- Batch 43229 (Columbus, Ohio): Brewed with chocolate and caramel malts for a rich auburn appearance and finished on Beechwood chips for a crisp, clean taste, this deep amber lager is 6 percent ABV.
I have to say, the North Pacific Style Lager is my favorite of the bunch, which may show my regional tastebuds. It’s a refreshing lager that is, indeed, bold and hoppy, which is the way I tend to like my beer. It’s absolutely delicious with a burger and fries. Yum.
