MillerCoors subsidiary AC Golden Brewing Company has decided to release Batch 19, a pre-prohibition style lager, in Wisconsin, US.

Initially, it will be available in draft beer style.

AC Golden Brewing Company marketing manager Meagan Nelson said: “We’ve seen great success so far in Colorado and because Wisconsin was a big supporter of Batch 19 back in the day, we think drinkers will be excited about its return.

“Retailers in Colorado have told us that when Batch 19 goes on draft, fans are calling to ensure it’s available. People are excited and surprised to see it and we’re aiming for similar success in Wisconsin.”

From this month, unpasteurised lager kegs will be available at bars and restaurants across greater Milwaukee metro and south to the Illinois border.

With 5.5% alcohol-by-volume (ABV), AC Golden was re-launched Batch 19 lager in Colorado in February this year to honour the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 18th Amendment, which prohibited the sale and consumption of alcohol.

The company has said that the beer has been brewed using noble hops and two malts to deliver a biscuit aroma backed by spicy, herbal notes.

Batch 19 is said to have been created using a recipe from Adolph Coors, an old brewing logbook discovered years ago.

In 2010, Batch 19 was first released in the market by Coors Brewing in select markets across the US.

Nelson further added: “Batch 19 has spread by word-of-mouth, and we want to continue to let it grow at its own pace and allow it to succeed on its own.

“We want to let drinkers rediscover this quality, sessionable lager and introduce it to a new generation of drinkers who may never have gotten the chance.”

Based in Colorado, AC Golden is a craft brewer that operates out of the Coors brewery.
