The latest addition to the Beck's brand in the US will be Beck's Premier Light, the lowest calorie beer in the US and the first imported low-carbohydrate beer. The new beer will begin shipping in January and is expected to have a national rollout by March 1. At 64 calories and 3.9 grams of carbohydrates the beer capitalises on the American trend for low calorie beers. Victor Melendez, marketing director of InBev USA, who brew Beck's, said: "It's a fantastic tasting beer that stays true to its German roots in both taste and its brewing process."
