Back when it opened in April 2017, Pabst Milwaukee Brewery and Taproom promised it would focus on craft and historical brews from the Pabst vault. The brewery made good on that promise earlier this summer when it re-launched Pabst’s classic Red, White & Blue beer. Now, with summer winding down, another iconic brew is set for a comeback: Pabst Andeker.
First introduced in 1939, the European style lager was discontinued in the 1960s, and brought back from 1972 to 1986. Pabst Milwaukee Brewery will celebrate Andeker’s second return at an in-house release party on Sunday, August 26. Here’s the full press release:
PABST MILWAUKEE BREWERY AND TAPROOM RE-LAUNCHES ANDEKER
Classic brew and crowler design available August 26
MILWAUKEE (August 21, 2018) – After months of refining the historic recipe, Pabst Milwaukee Brewery and Taproom will re-launch Pabst Andeker at an in-house release party from 12 to 4 p.m. Sunday, August 26.
First introduced as a premium brewed European style beer in 1939, the fan favorite will soon be back in Milwaukee. Andeker, a Helles Lager, is built with Pilsner and Munich malts, as a generous addition of caramel malts creates a touch of sweetness and a depth of color. Hopped with German noble hops for that traditional lager appeal and a smooth 16 IBUs, the beer is capped with a traditional thick, white head.
“We’re excited to bring this Pabst classic back to Milwaukee after months of working to perfect the recipe,” said Adam Powers, Pabst Milwaukee Brewery & Taproom general manager. “This recipe re-launch stays true to that iconic brew.”
The Pabst Andeker Release Party will feature limited edition crowlers at Pabst Milwaukee Brewery on Sunday, August 26.
