Skip to comments.The art of crafting fine beer (Miller/Coors microbrew)
Posted on 09/02/2008 6:17:55 AM PDT by dynachrome
A year ago, Coors Brewing - before its new joint venture with Miller Brewing - unveiled the creation of tiny AC Golden Brewing Co. The upstart brewery would operate as a stand- alone brewer, with its own budget.
The aim: Brew small-batch, handcrafted beers that would mimic the success of the parent company's popular Blue Moon Belgian White, a craft-style wheat ale.
Fast-forward one year.
The clock was nearing 7 on a recent Wednesday morning at the MillerCoors brewery here.
Two brewers were preparing to make the fourth batch - roughly 30 barrels - of AC Golden's debut brew: Herman Joseph's Private Reserve. It honors Coors Brewing founder Adolph Herman Joseph Coors.

Don’t worry. Miller will find a way to screw it up..............
We’re going to get a few cases of this made available to us here. Miller’s not had any hand in it’s production.
The Buckhorn Exchange- good food and good brew!
Sure hope they don’t go the way of the rest of the craft beer group and put pounds of hops in the vat ant tell us its good!
Will they be using Rice in this beer like the other mass produced vomit in a can/bottle/keg?
Anheuser-Busch makes a decent Belgian White called Shock Top.
I drank it before I found out that it was Anheuser-Busch, and was very surprised.
I wish them all the best, but as long as I can get Bitburger here I probably won’t be buying any. Bitte, ein Bit!
If Coors can top Fat Tire, I can't wait to try it. If you've not tried F.T. I recommend you do.
Fat Tire is the BEST!
Fat Tire is decent brew. It ain’t great brew. But it is sure better than any mass-produced horse p*ss.
What’s the big deal with Coor’s beer? The hundred or so I’ve put down (on those occasions the only other beer was Budweiser) in a lifetime all came across as cold, diluted water.
Why is having sex in a boat like Coors Light. Because their both f*&king near water.
Coors does the same with their “Blue Moon” brand. Good stuff, like a micro brew.
I finished testing Widmer Brothers Hefeweizen versus Paulaner Hefeweizen.
Paulaner by a factor of 2.
The Paulaner has a much more pronounced fruity flavor compared Widmer. The Widmer was ok, but only when you taste a true Bavarian Hefeweizen like Paulaner do you taste the stark differences.
The head on the Paulaner was also thicker and more persistent, as well as the "belgian lace" that stayed on the glass the entire "test".
Life is too short to drink anything besides a good German beer.
Test it 20 more times and let us know what you find.
I’ll have to give it a try.
If I can amend this, I would add, "or Belgian too".
Yes, more test sampling is needed.
