Budweiser likes to market itself as “America’s Beer,” and there are few people more emblematic of the US of than that Brit-fighting, Delaware-crossing, wooden-dentured first President of our union, George Washington. Budweiser has extracted from the pages of Washington’s military journals a recipe of Washington’s own make for a “small beer,” and mass-produced it for you to consume. Freedom Reserve Red Lager hits shelves this summer, just in time for the fourth of July.

The beer is based on an entry that Washington entitled “To Make Small Beer,” in a 261-year-old notebook found at the George Washington Papers Manuscripts and Archives Division at The New York Public Library. The entry provides detailed instructions for how to home-brew a tasty lager for the everyday colonist. The final product harbors a rich caramel malt taste with a touch of molasses. Budweiser will donate a portion of the proceeds from the lager of liberty to Folds of Honor, an organization that provides scholarships for the spouses and children of injured or fallen soldiers. Budweiser offers an historically flavorful beer with the Freedom Reserve Red Lager.
