Budweiser And Jim Bean Celebrate Repeal Day

This week Budweiser and Jim Beam Bourbon will recognize and celebrate a historic day in America – Repeal Day – the official end of Prohibition. December 5th will mark the 85th anniversary of the Repeal of Prohibition, and the iconic brands, each with impressive Prohibition survival stories, are calling on drinkers 21+ to celebrate responsibly on this momentous day.

“Prohibition is not only a part of Budweiser’s longstanding history but America’s too,” said Monica Rustgi, vice president of marketing for Budweiser. “Each year, we use December 5th as an opportunity to appreciate the right to drink in America and we’re excited to extend the celebration to drinkers across the country.”

On December 5th, Budweiser and Jim Beam are rallying the industry and the country for Repeal Day, from office-wide events to local bar takeovers. Budweiser will start with inviting employees to end the day early to celebrate, while both brands will encourage employees to toast their right to enjoy America’s two iconic beverages at 5:32 pm – the exact minute Repeal was ratified 85 years ago. The two brands will also host Prohibition-era celebrations across the country.

People across New York City will enjoy Repeal Day alongside the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales as they march through the streets delivering beer just like they did in D.C. to deliver the first legal batch of beer post-Prohibition. The Budweiser Clydesdales were first gifted to August A. Busch Sr. from his sons to celebrate Repeal and serve as a reminder of the prosperous days the company enjoyed prior to prohibition. Budweiser will also deploy Out of Home displays across the country, inviting fellow brewers in the industry to join in the Repeal Day celebration, while also calling upon beer drinkers everywhere to wear red bow tie as they enjoy their right to drink on December 5th.

Jim Beam, a brand that dates back to 1795 but paused production during Prohibition, will commemorate the holiday with a range of retail programming including speakeasy parties across the country.

“Jim Beam’s been doing things the right way in Kentucky for over 200 years – even during Prohibition, when my great-granddad James B. Beam waited until Repeal to rebuild our distillery and continue producing bourbon,” said Jim Beam’s 7th generation Master Distiller Fred Noe. “We figure the anniversary of Repeal may not be a national holiday, but it’s still grounds to celebrate. And we’re thrilled to raise a glass alongside our friends at Budweiser to honor this historic moment.”

The World’s most valuable beer brand and the World’s No. 1 bourbon brand share impressive histories of persevering through Prohibition while they were unable to produce their signature products. Both brands have thrived in the decades since Repeal; and earlier this year, Budweiser Brewmasters and Jim Beam’s 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe came together to create a first-ever collaboration brew, Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager, to celebrate the Repeal of Prohibition. Copper Lager, the third installment in Budweiser’s successful Reserve Collection, is on shelves now and the drink of choice for this occasion.

This Rhetoric Is Something You Need To Check Out

Rhetoric 25-Year-Old is the latest release from the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company – a beautiful Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey aged for 25 years. Aged five years longer than the first release, Rhetoric 20-Year-Old, it is slightly more mature and carries a higher proof. The Rhetoric series has been progressively aged and re-released annually at a year older, allowing whiskey aficionados to collect the series and compare the whiskeys side-by-side.

An intricate gold label features a hummingbird rising above chaos and confusion to find clarity and reason. The background, reminiscent of the oak barrels in which the whiskey aged, has grown deeper in color as Rhetoric is released each year.

Rhetoric stocks were found in the old Stitzel-Weller Warehouses in Louisville, Ky. The whiskey was distilled (between 1990- 1993) at the Bernheim Distillery historically located at 17th and Breckenridge in Louisville, Ky., while owned and operated by United Distillers. The whiskey is hand-bottled in Tullahoma, Tenn.

Aroma rich in oak and vanilla notes with hints of dried fruit, cherries and allspice. Palette is oak-forward with notes of nutmeg, caramel, and cocoa, and gives way to a warming and slightly spicy finish.

Give Them A Crown This Holiday

The holiday season always sneaks up fast, so in anticipation of what will surely be a busy next few months I wanted to reach out with a few ideas for your consideration in the event you’re putting together a seasonal gift guide.

Crown Royal, the number-one selling Canadian whisky brand in the world, now has a robust portfolio that contains 18 expertly blended variants including the original recipe of 50 full-bodied Canadian whiskies, Crown Royal Vanilla, Crown Royal XR and our limited-edition Noble Collection that includes Crown Royal 13-Year-Old Blenders’ Mash, the latest liquid in the series. With so many great offerings, you can truly find something for everyone on your holiday list.

Crown Royal Deluxe is the standard of excellence for Canadian whisky. It is an extraordinary blend of 50 full-bodied Canadian whiskies that are matured to perfection. Whether enjoyed straight or in a cocktail, it is the premium liquid your friends and family will love.

CROWN ROYAL VANILLA

Crown Royal Vanilla Flavored Whisky is a blend of Crown Royal whiskies infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. The result is a uniquely sophisticated whisky bursting with the flavor of vanilla and the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal. A versatile drink for the holidays, Crown Royal Vanilla tastes great with sodas, as a twist in classic cocktails or sipped on the rocks.

CROWN ROYAL XR

Taste the rarest in our extra rare whisky series, handcrafted with a unique blend that includes one of the final batches of whiskies from the renowned LaSalle distillery. Located on the island of Montreal, the LaSalle distillery produced whiskies with a unique richness, attributed to the fine water surrounding the island. The resulting whiskies were full-bodied and exceptionally smooth. Experience its sophisticated blend of dried fruits and honey in a harmonious balance with spicy notes of Canadian rye, finishing in a lovely, round taste of raisins, cocoa and brown sugar.

Crown Royal 13-Year-Old Blenders’ Mash

Crown Royal 13-Year-Old Blenders’ Mash, the third expression in the Noble Collection, is a rare stock of our Canadian Whisky made with a mash bill of 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% barley malt. Carefully aged in new, charred American white oak barrels for no less than 13 years. The complexity of the liquid intensifies with the aging process, bringing out richer and deeper notes of caramel and fruit. This remarkably smooth and layered whisky is hand selected from our reserve stock, revealing its noble roots with every sip.

Saving Private Ryan 20th Anniversary

Steven Spielberg directed this powerful, realistic re-creation of WWII’s D-day invasion and the immediate aftermath. The story opens with a prologue in which a veteran brings his family to the American cemetery at Normandy, and a flashback then joins Capt. John Miller (Tom Hanks) and GIs in a landing craft making the June 6, 1944, approach to Omaha Beach to face devastating German artillery fire. This mass slaughter of American soldiers is depicted in a compelling, unforgettable 24-minute sequence. Miller’s men slowly move forward to finally take a concrete pillbox. On the beach littered with bodies is one with the name “Ryan” stenciled on his backpack. Army Chief of Staff Gen. George C. Marshall (Harve Presnell), learning that three Ryan brothers from the same family have all been killed in a single week, requests that the surviving brother, Pvt. James Ryan (Matt Damon), be located and brought back to the United States. Capt. Miller gets the assignment, and he chooses a translator, Cpl. Upham (Jeremy Davis), skilled in language but not in combat, to join his squad of right-hand man Sgt. Horvath (Tom Sizemore), plus privates Mellish (Adam Goldberg), Medic Wade (Giovanni Ribisi), cynical Reiben (Edward Burns) from Brooklyn, Italian-American Caparzo (Vin Diesel), and religious Southerner Jackson (Barry Pepper), an ace sharpshooter who calls on the Lord while taking aim. Having previously experienced action in Italy and North Africa, the close-knit squad sets out through areas still thick with Nazis. After they lose one man in a skirmish at a bombed village, some in the group begin to question the logic of losing more lives to save a single soldier. The film’s historical consultant is Stephen E. Ambrose, and the incident is based on a true occurance in Ambrose’s 1994 bestseller D-Day: June 6, 1944

Forrest Gump

Stupid is as stupid does, says Forrest Gump (played by Tom Hanks in an Oscar-winning performance) as he discusses his relative level of intelligence with a stranger while waiting for a bus. Despite his sub-normal IQ, Gump leads a truly charmed life, with a ringside seat for many of the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century. Entirely without trying, Forrest teaches Elvis Presley to dance, becomes a football star, meets John F. Kennedy, serves with honor in Vietnam, meets Lyndon Johnson, speaks at an anti-war rally at the Washington Monument, hangs out with the Yippies, defeats the Chinese national team in table tennis, meets Richard Nixon, discovers the break-in at the Watergate, opens a profitable shrimping business, becomes an original investor in Apple Computers, and decides to run back and forth across the country for several years. Meanwhile, as the remarkable parade of his life goes by, Forrest never forgets Jenny (Robin Wright Penn), the girl he loved as a boy, who makes her own journey through the turbulence of the 1960s and 1970s that is far more troubled than the path Forrest happens upon. Featured alongside Tom Hanks are Sally Field as Forrest’s mother; Gary Sinise as his commanding officer in Vietnam; Mykelti Williamson as his ill-fated Army buddy who is familiar with every recipe that involves shrimp; and the special effects artists whose digital magic place Forrest amidst a remarkable array of historical events and people.

Scrooged 30th Anniversary  (Blu-ray)

A darkly comic and surreal contemporization of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, this effects-heavy Bill Murray holiday vehicle from 1988 sees the former SNL funnyman assuming the role of television executive Frank Cross, the meanest and most depraved man on earth. Cross will stoop to unheard of levels to increase his network’s ratings — even if it means mounting outrageous programs to retain an audience, such as “Robert Goulet’s Cajun Christmas” and Lee Majors in “The Night the Reindeer Died,” with an AK-47-toting Santa. Cross plots his foulest move, however, for the Christmas holiday, when he will force his office staff to mount a live production of A Christmas Carol on national television — and thus work through Christmas Eve. Cross’s life is turned upside down with visits from three ghosts: a craggy-faced cabbie known as The Ghost of Christmas Past (David Johansen); the sugar-plum fairy Ghost of Christmas Present (Carol Kane) (who gets her jollies by bonking Frank across the face with a toaster oven); and, eventually, the caped, headless Ghost of Christmas Future, who will send Frank sliding into a crematory oven — just before he gives the sleazoid one last chance to redeem himself. Along the way, the spirits carry Frank to scenes from his past, present, and future (per Scrooge) and impart a glimpse of how he became so thoroughly rotten. The radiant Karen Allen co-stars as Frank’s girlfriend, Claire Phillips, and the film packs in cameos from countless celebrities — among them, Mary Lou Retton, John Houseman, Jamie Farr, and, in a truly grisly and tasteless bit, John Forsythe. Richard Donner directs, from a script credited to the late Michael O’Donoghue and Mitch Glazer.

White Christmas 60th Anniversary  (Blu-ray)

White Christmas, Paramount’s first VistaVision production. A veritable warehouse full of oldie-but-goodie Irving Berlin tunes are woven into the film’s simplistic plotline, along with a handful of new songs, of which “What Can You Do With a General?” is the least memorable. Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye (replacing an ailing Donald O’Connor) play nightclub entertainers Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, while Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen are cast as singing-sister act Betty and Judy. The foursome travel to Vermont to visit Bob and Phil’s WII commanding officer, General Waverly (Dean Jagger, who looks and sounds like Dwight D. Eisenhower!), who now runs a rustic old inn. Discovering that the general is in dire financial straits, the four entertainers secretly make plans to bail the old guy out with a big musical show, enlisting the aid of Bob and Phil’s army buddies.

It’s a Wonderful Life 75th (Blu-ray)

George Bailey has so many problems he is thinking about ending it all – and it’s Christmas! As the angels discuss George, we see his life in flashback. As George is about to jump from a bridge, he ends up rescuing his guardian angel, Clarence. Clarence then shows George what his town would have looked like if it hadn’t been for all of his good deeds over the years. Will Clarence be able to convince George to return to his family and forget suicide?
