Nothing to Celebrate

Anheuser-Busch's Michelob gets a lot of grief for being a pale imitation of beer, but it seems to have outdone itself with something it calls "Celebration."

The concoction one hopes is merely a passing seasonal whim is made from adding vanilla beans to beer and aging it in used bourbon barrels, then putting the result in 24-ounce bottles and selling it to you.

I didn't make that up.

It has a secondary name, too: Michelob Oak-Aged Dark Vanilla Premium Lager.

Purists may have other names for it. I've seen several beer bloggers who do, and they're as imaginative as they are vulgar.
