St. Louis (KSDK) -- For a limited time, six Budweiser tribute beers are for sampling and you can help determine which make the cut.
Twelve Anheuser-Busch brewmasters at Budweiser's 12 breweries created their own tribute beers. Internal testing narrowed the group to six to launch this summer for a nationwide sampling.
To launch the six sampler beers, private events with brewmasters are scheduled to take place in August in all 12 A-B brewery cities: St. Louis; Merrimack, N.H.; Baldwinsville, N.Y.; Newark; Williamsburg, Va.; Cartersville, Ga.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Columbus, Ohio; Houston; Fort Collins, Colo.; Fairfield, Calif.; and Los Angeles.
The Budweiser Small Batch 63118, St. Louis, is competing against batches from Los Angeles, Ohio, Virginia, New York amd Colorado.
The Budweiser tribute beer from St. Louis is a deep-gold 5 percent ABV American lager that uses the same types of hops used at the St. Louis brewery during the 19th century. The beer is brewed by brewmaster Jim Bicklein and was developed in collaboration with Katie Rippel from Fort Collins.
The three most popular beers will be selected for a limited-edition sampelr pack, available for purchase this fall.
