  • Budweiser has created a beer based on a recipe in George Washington's journal from the 1750s.
  • The beer is brewed by veterans at Budweiser, with profits going to the nonprofit Folds of Honor.
  • We tested the beer and were impressed — despite one person's criticism that it is "clear that brewing has evolved" since 1757.

Budweiser is bringing back a beer straight from George Washington's journal.

Earlier in May, Budweiser unveiled the "Budweiser Freedom Reserve Red Lager." The beer is based on a recipe from George Washington's personal military journal, which dates back to 1757.

Budweiser brewed a beer based on George Washington's recipe

  Budweiser brewed a beer based on George Washington's recipe How George Washington ran a country and also made time for fun hobbies like homebrewing is totally beyond me. But homebrew he did, and one of his recipes is now the inspiration for a new Budweiser beer from Anheuser-Busch called Freedom Reserve Red Lager.The 1757 “recipe” is less a recipe and more of a general outline of his process—what temperature am I mashing in at, G-Dubs?—but it still contained enough details for the brewers at Anheuser-Busch to build a beer around it. Curiously, it also includes instructions to let the beer stand “til it is little more than Blood warm.” (Thanks to Fortune for transcribing Washington’s cursive into something us screenfreaks can actually read.

Washington is better known as a military leader and president than a beer connoisseur.

So, we decided to investigate. Is a man's beer recipe actually worth following just because he is a founding father of the United States of America?

Taste testers were surprised by how tasty the Freedom Reserve turned out to be. There were a few naysayers — one person said it was "clear that brewing has evolved" over the years — but the drink received high marks overall.

The Freedom Reserve has an immediate tartness that fades into a sweet, malty aftertaste. It's not the most complex flavor, but is instead a comfortably rich and caramel-tinged beverage.

While drinkable, this isn't a beer that is meant to be chugged alongside a Bud Light. Instead, the Freedom Reserve is balanced and a little old-school — a fitting tribute to Washington.

These States Drink the Most Beer

  These States Drink the Most Beer Does your state make the top ten?Some states are simply more synonymous with beer than others. Thanks to Bud, Miller and Coors, Missouri, Wisconsin and Colorado all have a significant attachment to brewing. (The fact that Wisconsin has a team called the Brewers also doesn’t hurt.) More recently, craft beer has put a whole new generation of beer meccas on the map from the IPAs of Vermont to the hop fields of Washington.

The brew's stubby vintage bottles are a nice touch. All in all, based on this beer, it seems that getting drunk with George Washington would go down easy.

Budweiser has had quite the patriotic run recently. For the last two summers, the beer brand has sold cans and bottles that substitute "Budweiser" with "America" on labels.

Freedom Reserve is brewed by veterans at Budweiser, with profits going to the nonprofit Folds of Honor. The beer debuted at the beginning of May and will be available until the end of September, or until supplies run out.

6 modern spins on the classic ice cream float .
Well root beer, it’s been a good run. But this summer we’re looking to the rest of the soda aisle to float our boats. The selection of carbonated beverages available at many area grocery stores is bigger than ever before. Add to that the impressively broad lineup of flavors in the frozen treat section, and you have yourself a recipe for an ice cream float party. We’re not just talking various permutations of the Coke and Pepsi lineup here. Craft soda bottlers are in the nascent stages of a movement that looks much like the early days of the craft beer revolution which transformed America’s drinking habits.
