St. Louis’ hometown brewery is bringing back its original brew.
Anheuser-Busch will once again offer St. Louis Lager, the brewery’s first flagship beer when it began more than 160 years ago, for the holiday season. The darker, lager-style beer hasn’t been produced in more than 115 years, but it will still be based on the original recipe from the Anheuser-Busch archives.
“We’ve come a long way in the last 160 years, and while consumer tastes and products have changed over the years, our commitment to brewing high-quality, innovative products continues to be at the core of everything we do,” said Colleen Lucas, vice president of corporate social responsibility and heritage for Anheuser-Busch, in a release. “By bringing back St. Louis Lager this December, we are proud to recognize the community that has enabled us to continue to grow and connect with consumers all over the world.”
The beer, which is being brewed for a limited time at the company’s Research Pilot Brewery, will be available at the brewery’s St. Louis biergarten while supplies last.
If the curiosity isn’t enough to make you stop for this brew, it’s also for a good cause; Anheuser-Busch will donate $2 for each St. Louis Lager sold to United Way of Greater St. Louis’ 100 Neediest Cases campaign, which helps thousands of families and individuals throughout the St. Louis area during the holidays.
