Budweiser’s ‘Red Lager’ recipe inspired by George Washington

ST. LOUIS, MO — George Washington is behind Budweiser's newest beer.

The Freedom Reserve Red Lager is inspired by the first president's recipe. He wrote the ingredients in a journal entry titled, "To Make Small Beer in 1757."

The limited-edition brew will be made by Budweiser's military veterans. Some proceeds from the sales will go toward Folds of Honor non-profit giving scholarships to military families.
