NewAnheuser Busch beer
SLP2000111603-16 NOVEMBER 2000- ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, USA: As the holiday season arrives this year, Anheuser-Busch will add Michelob Marzen to the Michelob family. Michelob Marzen, traditionally available during Oktoberfest, will be available exclusively in the Michelob Specialty Ales & Lagers 12 pack sampler through the holiday season. The 100-percent malt beer is historically brewed in the spring, stored in caves during the summer and then served in October when the weather is cool. The beer is based on an original recipe that Adolphus Busch brought back to America in 1896. bc/bg/Handout UPI
