Skipjack Amber is the New Mid-Atlantic Regional from A-B

Anheuser-Busch has rolled out another one of its regional specialty beers, this time Skipjack Amber.

The beer will target consumers in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee. It is named for the boats common to the Chesapeake Bay.

Patrons admitted to the VIP tent at the World Beer Festival in Raleigh were among the first to get a taste of Skipjack Amber. It is a malty, drinkable dark lager brewed at A-B's Williamsburg, Va., brewery. The beer is 5.5 percent alcohol by volume.
