MERRIMACK, NEW HAMPSHIRE is home to a smaller of the dozen Anheuser-Busch breweries. With their world-touring Budweiser Clydesdale team also in residence, you’d think the town has its share of glory. But within the dizzying array of acquisitions and mergers, AB InBev ended up with one of the United Kingdom’s best exports, Bass Ale.
For the American market, Bass Ale, once the best-selling beer in the world, is made in this country. AB InBev have pledged funding to support the Bass brand in America, and since June 2012, Bass has been brewed in Merrimack, New Hampshire at 5% ABV for the American market. – wiki
Long one of our favorite imports, Bass, a smooth bitter English ale, was a bit out of reach. But as a domestic, this niche beer with the oldest registered trademark in the world is now as affordable as a mass-produced choice! Great decision by Anheuser-Busch InBev. Make it where they drink it. A global company reacting locally!
Bonus trivia: Budweiser Clydesdales began their stomp in 1933 to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition.
