George Washington's

Original Recipe



At Mount Vernon, George Washington made his own beer in 30 gallon batches and in 1757 penned his recipe “To Make Small Beer” in his diary. It is from this recipe that we have created gw Beer.


Crafted lighter and smoother gw Beer bridges heritage and contemporary taste. Micro brewed for the mainstream, gw Beer is a golden amber American Pale Ale, lightly malty, with a smooth balance of toasted caramel and American hop flavor and aroma, creating a beer with high drinkability.
