RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A beer created by the brewmaster at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Williamsburg is part of a Budweiser limited-edition sampler pack this fall.
The company introduced a beer named for the 23185 ZIP code as part of a promotion called "Project 12." The project created small-batch beers at 12 of its breweries using yeast that is directly descended from the original Budweiser recipe from 1876.
After being pared to six, consumer feedback this summer helped pick the three beers included in the sampler that will be available nationwide. The beers selected were from the Los Angeles, St. Louis and Williamsburg breweries.
Williamsburg brewmaster Daniel Westmoreland says the light amber lager was aged on wood from bourbon barrels and spiced with vanilla. It was developed with brewmasters in Florida and Georgia.
