The moon brewskies have landed: Budweiser and craft beer Schlafly are both coming out with limited-edition brews inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, which occurred on July 20, 1969.
Bud’s version is called Discovery Reserve American Red Lager. Anheuser-Busch InBev says the brew is inspired by a specialty beer recipe from Bud’s archives that date back to the Apollo moon missions of the 1960s and 1970s. The 2019 version is made from medium roast “Voyager” barley malt.
Schlafly’s moon brews come in a sampler pack called Lunar Lager that contains four varieties: Lift-Off Lager, Apollo’s Orbit Black Lager, Moon Walk Dunkel and The Eagle Has Landed American Lager.
