AB Makers of Hog's Head Beer?

A followup today regarding one of my favorite subjects-beer :) namely the Hog's Head Beer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Thanks again to Jenifer from Party to the Parks who left a comment on another post that states she thinks the beer might be Anheuser Busch's "Red Amber". She writes that "Red Amber was previously exclusively marketed as Darden's (Red Lobster, Olive Garden etc.) own brew and isn't available at other bars, grocery stores or liquor stores. It makes sense, the rest of the rail is InBev, and I do remember Darden's very hoppy beer, Red Amber, wasn't my favorite either. But it's been too long since I've tried Darden's to definitively state they're the same beer."

THANKS JENIFER! Really appreciate you looking into this and letting me know!! :)

Aw. well still worth a try I guess but as a rule I dont care for AB products, although some beers carried as part of their InBev line are beers that were created brewed by others and are now distributed /owned etc by the mega beer company. As it is a holiday weekend, here are some fun & cool quotes from the founding fathers on the joy of beer! Have a blessed fun and safe 4th of July, cheers!

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." —Benjamin Franklin

"There can't be good living where there is not good drinking." —Benjamin Franklin

Beer, if drank with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit and promotes health.

- Thomas Jefferson
