American Amber Ale10.2% ABV30 IBU
In 2009 we got the idea to make a bigger version of our Louie’s’ Demise Amber Ale, age it in bourbon barrels for two months and call it Louie’s Resurrection.
The Louie’s Demise uses a multitude of malts, which is amplified to create the bigger, stronger beer for the Resurrection. That malt presence gives off the aroma of tobacco, toffee and figs during the brew.
It’s been fun taking a recipe that we’ve been brewing for 15 years and turning it up to 11 on the dial, making it bigger and bigger every year. The biggest challenge is allowing the beer the right amount of time in the bourbon barrels. We want the flavor to compliment the malt character. The aging adds a warm, smooth, vanilla flavor while enhancing the caramels and roastiness from the malt bill.
Heads up! Milwaukee Louie's Resurrection may not be available near you. Follow this beer to get notified when it's available nearby, try searching in a different area, or discover some similar beer.

Easy drinking and infinitely smooth, this amber ale is classic in style yet uniquely approachable. Hits of roast and caramel lend to a slightly sweet malt with a semi-dry finish. Perfectly pint-worthy.
