Batch 19 Launches To Honor Repeal Day

Batch 19, brought to you by MillerCoors, is a pre-Prohibition style lager. Batch 19 is derived from a recipe found in an old logbook discovered in brewery archives dating back to before 1919, when Prohibition banned beer.  This lager contains a rare combination of ingredients including Hersbrucker and Strisslespalt hops.  The name, Batch 19, comes from the year 1919 when the last batches of beer were destroyed.

Beer drinkers in Tampa, Orlando, Racine, Madison, Philadelphia, and San Diego will have the opportunity to drink this pre-Prohibition brew starting December 5th to honor the ratification of the 18th Amendment allowing Americans to drink again.
