Anheuser-Busch and its King of Shitty Beers, Budweiser, plan to release a 12-pack sampler of three new “craft” beers on October 29. Something tells me they’ll taste a lot like all of the other crap beers Budweiser brews.
The Budweiser Brewmasters’ Project Twelve sampler will feature three “Zip Code beers” that were named based the zip codes of the Budweiser breweries where they were created. The three beers will be as follows: Budweiser Batch No. 91406 (Los Angeles), a deep-amber lager with 6-percent alcohol by volume (ABV); Budweiser Batch No. 63118 (St. Louis), a deep-golden pilsner with 6-percent ABV; and Budweiser Batch No. 23185 (Williamsburg, Va.), a bourbon-cask lager with 5.5-percent ABV.
The three beers were created as part of Budweiser’s Project 12, in which brewers from each of A-B’s 12 Budweiser breweries collaborated to create 12 beers, which were then tasted by “tens of thousands of consumers.” The company narrowed the total number of beers down from 12 to 3 based on taster feedback, and it is packaging the 3 most popular brews.
To be fair, I haven’t tried any of Bud’s new Project Twelve beers, so I can’t accurate say whether they’re just more of the same poor-quality swill from Budweiser. That said, I don’t think I’d waste money on any of them anyway, so I’ll probably never know.
