      • Budweiser, Individual 12oz bottle beer (5.0% ABV)

        "Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp American-style lager. Brewed with the best barley malt and a blend of premium hop varieties, it is an iconic beer, celebrated in America. Introduced in 1876, The King of Beers is a crisp, refreshing American-style lager. Budweiser is popular to enjoy with friends, socializing, and at barbecues, and pairs well with pizza, burgers, or fried chicken. Brewing Process: The yeast we use in brewing Budweiser is proprietary to Anheuser-Busch. It's also directly descended from the original Budweiser yeast culture first used by Adolphus Busch in 1876. Water undergoes a multistage filtration process to assure purity, quality, and consistency."
