“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.”
If you’ve been reading the blog for any amount of time now, then it should be no secret that both Jay and I enjoy the occasional beer. Sometimes, there’s really nothing that hits the spot quite like a nice, cold beer in a big, frosty mug. Mmm mmmm.
So when Millennial Central recently reached out with an opportunity to sample Budweiser’s new, Limited Edition Project 12 Pack of beers, you can be sure that I was allllll over that.
Sure, while it would have been easy to hoard them all for ourselves, we decided to share the goods last Sunday when we went over to my parents’ house to watch the
horrendous Jets game. We’re a family of beer lovers, so I knew they’d appreciate the surprise.
I took out some of the Jets glasses and poured samples of all three so that everyone could try them and see which ones they liked best.
Out of everyone, I think the favorite had to be the North Pacific Style Lager – 94534 (fun fact: each beer has a zip code assigned to it, which is actually the zip code where it was brewed!).
This one was similar to a pale ale, slightly bitter, and fairly hoppy. This one wasn’t my favorite, but I did enjoy it.
Another one in the pack was the Beechwood Bock – 43229. It’s a deep amber lager, brewed with chocolate and caramel malts (yum!) and brewed on beechwood chips.
I’d say out of the three, this one was probably enjoyed by about half of the group (it was a little too dark and/or bitter for some). But I did actually use one of these to make a batch of beer bread that I brought over and it worked superbly in that.
The last of the three beers in the Project 12 Pack was the Vanilla Bourbon Cask – 23185, and this one was most definitely my favorite. Mmmm mmm mmmmmmm.
This is a lager aged on bourbon staves and vanilla beans and my goodness was I lovin’ it. Although it was a bit more intense of a beer than I would usually choose, the subtle vanilla flavor totally won me over. Seriously…I was so bummed there was only four of them. They’re long gone now.
We do still have a few of them left though, so it’s very possible that Jay and I will be enjoying them today while cheering on our Jets at home on our lazy Sunday. (Yeah, seriously, look at me blogging on a Sunday…when’s the last time that happened??). But if you’re interested in learning more about the Project 12 beers, you can read about them HERE and to find where they’re sold near you, be sure to check HERE.
But for now, I think it’s about time I go make some lunch (hello, leftovers!), turn on some football, and tend to my little man…who is currently loving his most recent toy.
I love it.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my friends…I’ll be back tomorrow!
