Pre-Prohibition Beer Being Brewed!

If you are a beer drinker and love vintage, here's some interesting news for you- Miller discovered a pre-prohibition beer recipe from 1919 and started brewing it and selling in select areas. Its called Batch 19. Being that I live in Milwaukee, where Miller is located, I am lucky enough to have multiple places to get the beer. I am not much of a beer drinker, but this one I gotta try.

This seems like an awesome beer to have for a 1920s wedding!

Here's more info from the Facebook page-
In 1919, beer was banned. Barrels were broken, breweries went under and recipes were lost. When beer came back 14 years later, it was never the same. That is until now, because in 2004, an old logbook was discovered in the brewery archives dating back before 1919. Batch 19 is inspired by the last batches of beer brewed before Prohibition made it illegal.

They also have more back story on Facebook, but just in case you aren't a FBer, click on the pic below to read it.
