In a move that may be surprising to Bud Light drinkers, Bud Light beers will soon be available in the United Kingdom, in the form of the Kirin beer.
Kirin is a new beer from the makers of Bud Light, which is currently available in Australia and New Zealand, where it was introduced by Bud Light in February 2016.
“It’s been an incredible journey for us, and we are very proud of what we have achieved with our beer,” said Brian McQuaid, president and chief executive officer of Budweiser, the US beer giant.
“The Kirin beer is the culmination of a decade of work that began with the development of the original Bud Light brand.
The Bud Light team worked with brewers, distillers, and the Kirin team to develop a product that we could be proud to introduce to our customers, and that they can be proud of.”
The new Kirin beer has a malt base with a sweet, slightly tart finish, with a dry finish.
Its body is thin, with medium-bodied body and a sweet finish.
“We have taken this beer and made it our own, and it’s been the perfect companion for the Kirin,” McQuee said.
“This beer will be available from 12.59pm tomorrow (Monday 21 July), with the first 12.99 pints coming out in September.”
I think the Kirin beers have a lot of appeal for people who want a light, refreshing, refreshing beer,” he added.
The new Bud Light Kirin beer will cost $5.99 and is available in select UK retailers.
It is available on tap at Budweisers UK breweries including The Beer Store, Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose.
Budweiss beers are available at select British pubs and bars, including the Beer Shop in Birmingham and the Black Cat.
Bud Light UK announced the launch of its Kirin beers on its website last month.
