Budweiser's Freedom Lager Is Based On George Washington's Home Brew Recipe

You probably remember George Washington from all that “leading the American Revolution and becoming the first President of the United States” business. But did you know that he was also a homebrewer? George was such a dabbler in the craft beer world (back when every beer was a craft beer by its nature) that he left behind some recipes for future generations to use.

For better or worse, Anheuser-Busch got their hands on one of those recipes and used it as the inspiration for a new beer called Freedom Reserve Red Lager.

You can actually see the recipe here as it’s been archived in the New York Public Library. In fairness, it’s less of a recipe and more like instructions on how to brew.
