Batch 19 Lager

Batch19

Call me a slave to package design, but I couldn’t help but be intrigued when I saw Batch 19 “Pre-Prohibition Style Lager” in the store. Bottled by Coors, I thought the marketing behind the product was extremely well done and was pleasantly surprised by the taste. There is definitely that initial Coors flavor, but the unique combination of Herbsucker (herbal notes) and Strisslespalt (black currant) hops create a pleasantly bold and smooth aftertaste. Whether or not this is actually what beer tasted like back in the early 1900’s is debatable, but it’s still an interesting idea.

In 1919, beer was banned. Barrels were broken. Breweries went belly up. Drinking a beer became an act of protest against those in power. Each toast was a citizen’s demand to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. When beer became legal again 14 years later, it was never the same. That is, until a few years ago when we discovered an old beer recipe in the basement archives of the brewery dating back before Prohibition. Batch 19™ is inspired by the last batches of beer brewed before 1919.

One of my favorite blogs, Four-Pins.com, recently posted a hilarious article about Seinfeld’s Greatest Fashion Moments. To say it is a “must read” is an understatement…

It’s rare that a sitcom resonates in the popular culture 15 years after its final episode—yeah, kids born after the show ended are now 15 and way cooler than you—but with ’90s trends ebbing in and out of fashion over the past few years, Seinfeldian style is more relevant than your favorite celebrity stylist. Others have written about Jerry’s sneaker game and even George’s steady prep conventions, but Elaine’s gear could be straight out of a Vice editorial and your favorite Japanese designer is already crafting his Spring/Summer 2015 collection around Kramer’s funemployed lifestyle.
