COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Local legends aren’t just born, they’re brewed. And no beer in the Midwest has a grander brewing tradition than Grain Belt. For over 100 years, Grain Belt has been the beer that fathers have passed on to sons and friends have passed amongst each other at local bars and watering holes. It is a beer with tradition that spans generations. Which is why it has become legendary–both here and across the country.

In the 1940s, around the same time Grain Belt built its famous bottle cap sign overlooking the Mississippi River in Northeast Minneapolis, they introduced a “Beer of Exceptional Quality”–Premium. With its crisp, unique flavor, Premium quickly became the flagship of the Grain Belt brand. And still is to this day.

Although the Grain Belt Premium recipe has changed hands over the years, one thing has remained the same–its legendary unique taste. And now that Premium is in the capable hands of a brewery with an even longer tradition than Grain Belt–the August Schell Brewery–may you rest assured that the flavor and heritage of Premium will live on forever.

So as a local legendary beer, we raise a glass to all the people, places and things that make the Midwest such a rich and unique place to live. Here’s to you!

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Bottle. It poured a clear yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma is malty grain. It has a slightly sweet corn taste. Nicely balanced.

Draft @ High Life Lounge - Pours clear gold with no head. Sweet corn, not bitter, very mild. Surprisingly good, sessionish brew.

12oz bottle pours a clear pale golden with a large white head. Sweet corn malt aroma. Very sweet corn grain malt becoming less sweet and bland on the finish with a light hop presence. My friends in college were always excited when I arrived back to Michigan with cases of this, way better then the bud or miller we usually drank. Still highly drinkable, and a preferred choice when options are limited.
