“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Budweiser. I received a product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”
So right before Thanksgiving, B turned 30! He didn’t want to have a big party thrown or a bunch of people over, so we just invited his parents over and my best friend and her fiancee. It was very low key, but actually was just what he wanted.
I recently was contacted to try out the Limited Edition Beers that Budweiser was offering for the Holiday Season and jumped at the chance. I love me some beer, specifically different kinds of beers and pairing this up with a little mini gathering for B’s Birthday worked out perfectly!
With the package of beers to taste, we also received a slate serving board which we used for the tasting and also little tasting mugs and coasters from Crate and Barrel. It was perfect for appetizers and we set it out before everyone came with some salami, cheese and little breads to put it on. Everyone thought that the set up was super cute and was interested in the beers as well since we had them out in the smaller glasses.
Everyone tried all the beers and then picked one to have during lunch, which was chicken tacos and B makes the BEST chicken on the grill. All three of the flavors were very different and unique which was surprising and great. I also was very surprised how much they didn’t taste like a regular Budweiser either. The Vanilla Bourbon Cask was very sweet and light and my Mother in Law loved that one. I personally preferred the Beechwood Bock because it was more of a darker beer. The North Pacific Style one was good too and B opted for that one as well. Overall, they are all three very different and distinct flavors and everyone who tried them was surprised by how all three tasted.
I love the uniqueness of these beers and have already been looking for the Beechwood Bock in my grocery store, but I can’t find it yet! I think that this is a great idea and love that Budweiser is offering these limited edition beers just in time for the Holiday Season! I hopefully will be locating some Beechwood Bock soon in my market :)
