Budweiser and Jim Beam Bourbon have announced a new beer collaboration: Budweiser Reserve Black Lager.
This marks the second collaboration between the two companies, joining Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager, which is also returning to shelves.
Budweiser Reserve Black Lager is aged on six-year Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves, and is 7.1% ABV. Black Lager has a dark auburn color, an oaky aroma with coffee and chocolate notes, plus a toasted malt taste, the company reports.
“For the second collaboration between Bud and Beam, we wanted to brew something unique that would excite both beer lovers and bourbon aficionados,” says Ricardo Marques, VP of marketing core & value brands at Anheuser-Busch. “Budweiser Reserve Black Lager is a bold, bourbon-forward beer that’s perfect for the holidays.”
Budweiser Reserve Black Lager is available nationwide this October through December, while supplies last. Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager is available nationwide through March 2020.
Both brews will be available in stubby glass bottles across the country. Black Lager will also be available in a 22-oz. bomber bottle gift box.
