Bud Light just launched its first carb-free beer

Downing a few beers while drinking might not be everyone's preference - you might feel a little too full after your second or third can - but thankfully, there's a new solution. Ahead of the upcoming drinking season, Budweiser has launched a new beer called Bud Light NEXT, a carb-free beer that will remind you that sometimes it’s a marathon, not a sprint .

Bud Light NEXT spent 10 years perfecting its flavor and will finally be available after its commercial premiere during the 2022 Super Bowl. NEXT joins the ranks of other low-carb beers such as Michelob Ultra and Corona Premier. The company guarantees that Bud Light NEXT has the same light, refreshing flavor as classic Bud Light beer, but is specially brewed to provide the same drinkability as hard seltzer, which means you should stock up on it in your refrigerator sooner rather than later. Before you head to the liquor store, there are a few things you should know about Bud Light's new flavor.
