ST. LOUIS — Budweiser and Jim Beam Bourbon unveiled ‘Budweiser Reserve Black Lager,’ which is a limited-supply brew with an ABV of 7.1%.

The specialty beer marks the second collaboration between Budweiser and Jim Beam. The ABV of 7.1% is the highest in Budweiser’s portfolio, a spokesperson said.

“Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager proved that when Budweiser and Jim Beam collaborate, good things happen,” said Ricardo Marques, VP of Marketing Core & Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch. “For the second collaboration between Bud and Beam, we wanted to brew something unique that would excite both beer lovers and bourbon aficionados. Budweiser Reserve Black Lager is a bold, bourbon-forward beer that’s perfect for the holidays.”

‘Budweiser Reserve Black Lager’ boasts a dark auburn color, an oaky aroma with coffee and chocolate notes, a toasted malt taste, and a deliciously smooth finish. Black Lager is aged on six-year Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves for a bolder taste that’s perfect for the holiday season and is available beginning in October. It will also be available in a premium 22-ounce bomber bottle gift box.

Budweiser Reserve Black Lager is available nationwide this October through December, while supplies last. Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager is available nationwide through March 2020.
