COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Celebrating our 15th anniversary in 2013, we pay homage to Indiana’s most beloved beer of all time, Champagne Vevet. CV was a German-inspired lager and the flagship of the Terre Haute Brewing Company during its heyday, from the turn of the 20th century until the late 1950s. Before THBC fell victim to the rampant consolidation that characterized the beer industry during the latter half of the century, the brewery covered several square blocks of the city. Today, only a few of the original structures still stand - ancient bricks, blocks and beams where the strength and scale of the brewery is still apparent. Our brewers were inspired by the handwritten 1901 recipe notes of THBC assistant brewer, Walter Braun. True to most pre-Prohibition American pilseners, CV continues to brewed with corn and malted barley and showcases both Cluster and Tettnang hops. Cluster was the predominant American-grown hop in the Midwest at the turn of the century, and the Braun family came to the U.S. from the Tettnang region of Germany. Over the years, CV was marketed with some of the best slogans ever created: "Enjoy its mellow strength!" "CV for you, CV for me!" And of course, "The BEER with the million dollar flavor" - we agree!

phaleslu (10907) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2017
Draft at HopCat - Broad Ripple, although I probably would've held off had I known they also had this in cans at Hinkle. Anyway, it pours a super pale clear gold with a medium white head that settles into a ring and thin film while lacing the glass. Notes of pale malts, straw, grass, faint muddled fruits, and floral zest. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a clean, crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Not much to it, but that's the point. Well done.

jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Pours a clear golden body with white head and lace. Mouthfeel is light bodied with notes of lemon, spice, bread, grass and sweet pale malt.

BlackBeerPG (987) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Taste: smooth, velvet mouthfeel, crisp clean Champagne finish. Mild grainy nose. Gold, crystal clear, with tall foamy head and sticky lattice on glass. Light body

afn (15) - New York, USA - NOV 19, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Regional American lager style, with a definite German influence. Nothing wrong with it up front, but finish is out of sorts.

BeerInHeaven (500) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2017
pours a very pale straw gold with a smallish white head. not much in the way of aroma, light corn and malt. The taste is not bad. light malt with mild hop bitterness. As far as pale lagers go, this is well above average.

Marheb (6336) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2017
(Une cannette à Heorot): Cream corn en folie avec des angles herbacés timides.

3.5
GenDV138 (7900) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2017
6 oz pour on draft at Snallygaster 2017 shared. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of corn, hay, floral notes. Tastes of corn, hay, floral notes. Light body with a dry finish.

2.8
solidfunk (9741) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 28, 2017
Yellow pour. Light bretta but not a lot of interesting elements here. Lots of water like in front of a breaking dam. Light crisp finish. Tap at Snally.

3.3
mansquito (7148) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2017
Owl Farm can: pours pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is light and frainy with sugar. Mellow and lightly hoppy. Bready with adjuncts. About as good as the style can be.

2.4
BREWMUSKCLES (2759) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2017
whitest white head on the thinner side. sweet really lighter body with some dense component. an interesting light birthday cake like flavor in some bitterness that may very well not be hops. different and for someone like me something that would need to be gotten used to. moderate finish and one dimensional.
