St. LOUIS — Anheuser-Busch has introduced a cocktail-inspired hard seltzer line.
Social Club Seltzer comes in Old Fashioned, Sidecar and Citrus Gimlet flavors. Each 12-ounce can has 150 calories and has 7% ABV.
"With the growth of the hard seltzer industry comes consumers looking for new offerings that fit different occasions, so we are excited to introduce a new premium hard seltzer cocktail for fans to enjoy," said Lana Kouznetsov, vice president of Anheuser-Busch’s Beyond Beer. "Inspired by the flavors of classic cocktails and combined with the refreshment of a seltzer, Social Club appeals to cocktail lovers who are looking for the flavors they love but in a more sessionable format."
The Old Fashioned seltzer is a new take on a classic whiskey cocktail that balances flavors of blood orange, warm spice and a hint of smoky oak. The Sidecar has notes of rich stone fruit and lemon, and the Citrus Gimlet is a blend of citrus flavors with a hint of juniper, according to Anheuser-Busch.
The drinks are available this month nationwide and are sold in a variety flavor 12-pack and individual flavor six-packs.
Social Club Seltzer joins the company's other hard seltzer brands: Bud Light Seltzer, Bon & Viv Spiked Seltzer and Natural Light Seltzer.
