Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager

Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager is the latest national release by Anheuser Busch InBev. 

According to Anheuser Busch, brewery founder Adolphus Busch created 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager prior to the American Prohibition in 1920. The beer never traveled far from Bud’s original home of Saint Louis before alcohol was banned.

With the anniversary of Repeal coming up on December 5th plus the holidays looming,  Anheuser Busch is launching Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager. The amber lager is lightly hopped, and caramel malt-forward. Repeal Reserve will also be packaged in vintage “stubby” 12-ounce bottles.

“We are excited to mark the upcoming holiday season and the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition with this new brew based on a forgotten recipe. While Budweiser Repeal Reserve is a great tasting Amber Lager, it also tells the story of an important part of our history and gives reason for celebration.” – Ricardo Marques, VP of Budweiser

The official launch of Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager is slated for October 25th in New York City. Th brewery has partnered with LYFT to bring a fleet of 1930’s cars for safe rides to the launch party.

  1. 6.0 alcohol by volume great selling point by itself. but the clean ,crisp mellow bite of hoppy,toasted barley slightly sweet wheat bread crust.not to mention the amber hue contrasted by the frothy white head. resulting from a perfect pour. perfection!. O yes the mouth feel smooth and lingeringly refreshing.

  2. found some have tried it … I’m a StL native even did a brief consult stint in AB’s R&D they were playing with amber lagers in the 1980s too … it’s a cool gimmick, the beer isn’t half bad altho as a lager fan it’s a bit on the sweet side to my tastes. With the recipe being ‘near forgotten’ are we sure it was accurately remembered? 😉
