Do you get worried now that the weekend is around the corner, that you’re potentially going to start drinking some beers, and that’s going to ruin the effort that you put into dieting during the week? It’s not like it’s a bad idea to limit the number of beers that you take in. However, Anheuser-Busch the company behind Budweiser and Bud Light is making an effort to eliminate the extra carbs after enjoying a few cold ones!

The company is looking at a 2022 release for their new beer. They also revealed that this won’t be a beer that they’re just cooking up on the fly to try and meet the demands of the market. It’s a well-known fact that people are literally counting carbs now more than ever before.
The idea of putting out a zero-carb beer has been a 10-year journey for the brand, or so they claim. Not just a quick sales gimmick for next summer!
What’s The Real Difference?
With so many low-carb, and lower-calorie options emerging in the beer market it’s really hard to tell the difference between one product and the other. When compared directly to the regular can of Bud Light this option is going to decrease the levels of literally that the beer contains. Carbs are supposedly going to go to zero. A regular can of Bud Light beer has 6 to 5g of carbs. Depending on who you ask. The amount of calories is also coming down. As is the overall alcohol level.
Is It Just Going To Taste Like Watered Down Regular Bud Light?
There are still folks out there that complain about Bud Light tasting just like a watered-down version of Budweiser. Just by looking at the numbers that we presented it certainly seems like this new beer has the potential to taste like a watered-down version of Bud Light.
Company executives are trying to negate that idea. Telling CNN that this final blend was chosen from more than 130 different brewing experiments that were made to create this new beer. While also adding that the taste will be “light, refreshing and clean” with citrus notes.
The New Trend In the Industry
As we mentioned company executives announced the launch of this new product with great enthusiasm. Saying that it caters to the preferences of a “new generation of drinkers”. That sounds odd, but it’s one of the most honest statements that a company can put out! This beer would be the first zero carb beer in the world. Anheuser-Busch is hoping to set a trend with this type of beer. Potentially being able to dominate the new market. As they already do with their hard seltzer line which is one of the most consumed in the country!
