Budweiser & Jim Beam Craft A Limited Bourbon Barrel Black Lager

While we wouldn’t exactly call it commonplace, it’s not unusual for brands in related industries to team up on specialty releases. But it is a bit more unique when two giants join forces not once, but twice. And that’s exactly the case with the limited-edition Black Lager you see before you today.

For the second time, Jim Beam and Budweiser have joined forces on a specialty beer called Reserve Black Lager — a 7.1% ABV dark beer that perfectly melds what both brands have to offer. That’s because this brew was actually aged on six-year bourbon barrel staves to imbue it with bold, oaky flavors that pair perfectly with its notes of chocolate and coffee, toasted malt, and a smooth finish. Available now through December, this unique release will also be joined by a rerelease of the Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager — the first collaboration between these two brands. Find it in stores in both 22-ounce bombers and old-school stubby glass bottles.
