Catch A Patriotic Buzz With George Washington’s Beer Recipe

The 4th of July is tomorrow, so this may be a bit of short notice. But a lot of people switch over to American Beer for the 4th. And yeah, Miller, Bud, and PBR are all good and will get the job done. But for the true Patriot, there really is one beer that will bring in the Birth of America properly; George Washington’s Personal Brew! It’s been at the New York Public Library under lock and key for decades, but they decided a few years ago to release it to the general public and it is AWESOME! Here is the recipe. Enjoy getting hammered like a true American Hero!

To make Small Beer

Take a large Sifter full of Bran Hops to your Taste. – Boil these 3 hours. Then strain out 30 Gallons into a Cooler, put in 3 Gallons Molasses while the Beer is scalding hot or rather drain the molasses into the Cooler & strain the Beer on it while boiling Hot. Let this stand till it is little more than Blood warm. Then put in a quart of Yeast if the weather is very cold, cover it over with a Blanket & let it work in the Cooler 24 hours. Then put it into the Cask – leave the Bung[hole] open till it is almost done working – Bottle it that day Week it was Brewed.


And yes, George Washington just said Bunghole. Happy Birthday America!
