What is Veintiuno? Well, we mentioned it a couple weeks ago as a “test-batch.” Now that it’s all carbonated and tasted, we are confident in its ability to stand with the other Emperial Brewing beers as a summer seasonal—though we won’t complain if you brew it year-round either. As far as style goes, Veintiuno is a an American Amber Vienna Lager inspired by, you guessed it, macro mexican lagers. Unlike its inspiration, it relies entirely on malted barley, and brings the unique taste of vienna malt to the fore—no corn sugars allowed. Why “Veintiuno?” Aside from acknowledging its roots, “Veintiuno” can be taken as a reference to the United State’s 21st Amendment (that repealed prohibition). In that sense, its drinkability and low alcohol content make it an ideal option for those wanting to imbibe responsibly. Temperance need not be abstinence—especially when it’s delicious.

Depending on further testing, the beer will have packaging and official recipes added to the repository/this site. Until then, the initial recipe is as follows:
