Summer 2020, Come Quicker! Bud Light Is Launching Its Own Spiked Seltzer
So, uh, can we fast forward to next Summer already? Because Bud Light just announced plans to release its very own branded spiked seltzer, and we're already dreaming about sipping a can while sunbathing at the beach. Slated to hit shelves in the beginning of 2020, Bud Light Seltzer comes in four flavors: Lemon Lime, Black Cherry, Mango, and Strawberry. And no, beer is not involved even though it's made by a beer company: each can gets its 5 percent ABV content from fermented cane sugar, just like any other hard seltzer. The only other ingredients are sparkling water and natural fruit flavors.
Bud Light Seltzer will come in variety 12-packs, single-flavor 12-packs, and single-flavor 25-ounce cans, joining a host of popular hard seltzer brands like White Claw, Bon & Viv, and Truly. Similar to its soon-to-be competitors, Bud Light's version caters to health-conscious drinkers, containing just 100 calories, 2 grams of carbs, and less than 1 gram of sugar per can. Will you be trying these boozy, fizzy sips come next year?
