American Lager – The world’s No. 1 American beer. Bud has been around for more than 140 years. Its ingredients and brewing method have remained unchanged since it was first brewed in 1876. It is also the only beer to use beechwood chips, which keep the yeast in suspension longer during the maturation process. This is what gives BUD its unique flavour. A light-coloured beer with a subtle aroma and perfect balance.
