Default Budweiser project 12

http://guyism.com/lifestyle/alcohol/...roject-12.html

Bud asked all 12 of there brewmasters to make there own "batch"
3 are being put out to the public..One is actually barrel aged on vanilla and another even uses crystal malt?!?!

Do they think this is Buds "Craft" response??

Top of the cake is the goose island pint glasses they picture them in...

People who have visited Bud's factories have mentioned getting to try all sorts of beers not available to the public, experimental, craft beer offerings, even ales. It's nothing new. And to me it's a good thing. And I'm sure it is for the brewstaff as well, it probably get's tiring brewing under such exacting conditions to achieve perfection consistently in what they do. They need creative outlets too. That's why AHB supports an employee homebrewers club as well, they were given so much hops from the companyclub one year that they shared them with non member homebrewers as well, even some folks on here got them.

I see this as a good thing. I'd love to taste some of those.

And as to the goose island glasses....AHB owns Goose island. The employees probably get all sorts of cool beer swag from all the of the companies holdings.

The folks who work there, especially the brewers are no more or less passionate about beer than we are. Hence making a career out of it. Just because we're not big fans of the beer, doesn't mean they don't make an excellent and consistent product on a huge scales, and it doesn't mean that the staff is not anymore or less creative.

The interesting thing to me is why anyone would think this is a bad thing...

Why the insults and hate? I think it's a great idea, to try to encourage their professionals to branch out a little. They were limited by their yeast strain, of course, and had to appeal to the masses but they are excellent brewmasters and just about the best of the best.

And of course they'd be in Goose Island glasses. They do own Goose Island, after all.

So these are commercially available, NOW? I'd love to try them. They all sound great. An ACTUAL 1800's styled version of the beer, really? I would love to brew something like that for my vintage base ball team. Only since I'm not a fan of rice adjuncted lagers, I'd switch out to corn. But I want to try this set.

Posted it in a 100% positive way.
I am very happy that AHB is straying from there old perfected style and branching off into something new.

The glasses are great, for me it was the reason i thought about how they are moving towards the craft scene.

Personally I vowed a while ago never to support Budweiser with my money, and I'd only try something like this if someone else had purchased it. I applaud them for being able to make such a consistant product through the years, but I just can't come to terms with the way they run their business, like how they buy up breweries just for the name and abandon the original breweries and/or integrity. Case and point: Rolling Rock, Stella, now Goose Island.

Maybe one day they'll be back on my good side, but even then I'd still rather spend $16 on a 4-pack of amazing craft brew before I spend $16 on a 24-pack of their product. :/

Yeah, they are here in MN. Didn't examine the goods long enough to determine what all varieties there were...sort of assuming there is one of each in the 12-pack. Plan was to circle back around after hitting the cooler section but then I got distracted by the tequilas and never did circle back.

Good thing my GF works up the road where it was (hasn't quite made it to our small town store yet) so she'll grab me a box on the way home tonight.
