Bud Light Lime Introduces Straw-Ber-Rita
ST. LOUIS, March 25, 2013
ST. LOUIS, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Last April, Bud Light Lime
Lime-A-Rita hit shelves, and in less than eight months, became the leading
flavored malt beverage brand on the market, selling more than 500,000
barrels. The successful launch of Lime-A-Rita was second only to Bud Light's
other 2012 innovation, Bud Light Platinum, which was the No. 1 top-selling new
product in the alcohol category.
Today, Lime-a-Rita will launch its much-anticipated new flavor: Bud Light Lime
Straw-Ber-Rita, an 8%* alc/vol flavored malt beverage that blends the
refreshment of Bud Light Lime with the taste of an authentic strawberry
"The response to Lime-A-Rita, especially among non-beer drinkers, was
tremendous, and we knew we'd tapped into a winning insight we could build on,"
said Rob McCarthy, vice president, Bud Light. "Strawberries and margaritas
have long gone hand-in-hand. Straw-Ber-Rita is a unique twist on a familiar
flavor that only Bud Light Lime can deliver."
Both Straw-Ber-Rita and Lime-A-Rita are best enjoyed over ice and are the
perfect addition to any outdoor occasion, especially as the weather heats up.
The new brand will be available in three pack sizes: 12-pack, 8 oz. cans;
four-pack 16 oz. cans; and 24 oz. cans.
