Leave it to two all-American brands to team up on a rich fall beer that accentuates the best of the best when it comes to heritage institutions — we’re talking, of course, about the Budweiser x Jim Beam Reserve Black Lager, a new launch that might be one of the best beers you can snag as of late.
It’s here just in time for chilly weather, a fitting introduction to any rotation of heavier, darker beers designed to amp up your palette on cold nights. The Reserve Black Lager is limited-edition and all the better for it, featuring an aging process that makes use of six-year-old Jim Beam bourbon staves.
The resulting beer is a step up from traditional Budweiser, and that’s very good news indeed if you prefer your beers rich and roasty all the way through. It’s the second partnership between the two iconic institutions, and if fan response is any indication, here’s hoping beers like this one keep sticking around for the holidays and beyond.
