The US division of Anheuser-Busch InBev has returned to its tie-up with Beam Suntory, adding a fifth limited variant to the 'Discovery' series for flagship brand Budweiser in the US. Following on from the launch last year of Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager, a beer aged on Jim Beam Bourbon barrel staves, the brewer has today unveiled Reserve Black Lager.

The new addition to the Budweiser Discovery line has also been aged on barrel staves for Jim Beam that have been in contact with the Bourbon for six years.

When contacted by just-drinks, a spokesperson for Anheuser-Busch declined to confirm the price of the lager, saying only that it will be available at "a premium price point".

Coinciding with the launch of the new beer, Anheuser-Busch is also bringing back Copper Lager, which will be available nationwide until March next year.

"For the second collaboration between Bud and Beam, we wanted to brew something unique that would excite both beer lovers and Bourbon aficionados," said Ricardo Marques, VP of marketing core & value brands at Anheuser-Busch. "Budweiser Reserve Black Lager is a bold, Bourbon-forward beer that's perfect for the holidays."
