Anheuser-Busch Launches New Seasonal Draft

12/21/2005
ST. LOUIS -- Anheuser-Busch makes winter a bit cozier this season with Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale, a rich, full-bodied seasonal draught. This new beer boasts a smooth, robust flavor and warm, tawny color.

Brewed with dark roasted caramel malts and all-imported hops and aged on toasted bourbon oak casks and whole Madagascar vanilla beans, this winter brew is the second to be launched in a series of specialty seasonal drafts.

"Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale was carefully crafted to appeal to adults who are looking for a new drinking experience this season," said Florian Kuplent, brewmaster for St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch.

With 6 percent alcohol by volume and available nationwide through February, this is the second in a series of seasonal draught beers A-B plans to introduce to on-premise accounts across the country. Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale -- a spiced beer with the aroma of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and a malty finish -- was the first seasonal draught in this new program.

Other Anheuser-Busch specialty brews, the Michelob Marzen and Michelob Pale Ale, were recently awarded gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival. These seasonal beers were part of the Michelob Specialty Sampler Collection.
