Celebrating our 15th anniversary in 2013, we pay homage to Indianas 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!

backlog. can. Pours clear intense yellow, small creamy head. Nice fresh and crisp pale malt, lager yeast, little citrus. Light body, nice effervescent mouth-feel, subtle sweetness. Textbook lager, according to German standards. I love the more malty versions though. But decent nonetheless.

thegreenrooster (4335) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Pour is a pale clear gold with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is corn and pale malt. Flavor is clean lager malt and watery. A little more body of malt than the lagers of today. It would be good at a picnic on a warm summer day.

Cybercat (5673) - Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Pours clear, bubbly golden with a decent eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but has subtle fruity and malty notes. Crisp flavor is more Pils-y, malty with an apple and pear underpinning, not complex but refreshing. This would certainly take the edge off a sweltering day! Mouthfeel has average body but good, strong fizz. Maybe not a million-dollar flavor, but pleasing.
