Did you think MGD 64 would always be as "Light as it gets?" While the craft beer market is trying to make "extreme" beers, the big guys are going in the complete opposite direction.
AB-Inbev has come out with a new product in direct competition with MGD 64 in their Bud Select line. Bud Select 55. What people don't realize is the alcohol content of this stuff. If you read my previous post on MGD 64, you will see that it does not make sense to drink this stuff if you want to get any kind of a buzz. It is in that mathmatical equation, I knew pre-calculus would be good for something. When I emailed AB-Inbev, this is what they had to say about the new product:
"SELECT 55 contains 2.4% alcohol by volume. It’s a light golden lager that delivers all the easy-drinking refreshment of a premium light beer at only half the calories."
Half the calories AND half the alcohol. You forgot to mention that.
