Budweiser-Is-Teaming-Up-With-Jim-Beam-for-a-New-Beer

We’ve spent plenty of nights with our good friends Bud and Jim, though we can’t recall them all that well. Now the two labels are coming together to streamline the shot and a beer procedure. Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager is a beer aged on Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves, lending the brew notes of vanilla and toasted oak. The beer is set for release later this year, as it marks the 85th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition. Now you can drink your Jim Beam and your Budweiser together without forgetting what happened after midnight. Or you could just pound 12 of them and make up for the lack of bourbon. Your call.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
