Faster than you could say "West Bend Lithia Regner Red Ale" the general beer drinking population was asking the constituents of Lithia Beer when they would come out with a lighter ale. Now, almost a year since the birth of West Bend Lithia Regner Red, Gunter Woog, the CEO of West Bend Lithia Beer Company is introducing its new West Bend Lithia "Bucky Blonde Light Ale."
You can’t keep a good beer down. At least, that’s what Lithia beer is saying. Ever since Lithia Beer was first brewed in West Bend, it shared a rich heritage with the city, Washington County and Wisconsin. West Bend Brewing Co. was established in 1848, the same year that Wisconsin became a state. When the doors closed in 1968, after a 120 year brewing tradition, the local beer was lost, but not forgotten.
