- Molson Coors
Molson Coors Brewing Co. said on Tuesday that it will launch Coors Light Iced T in Canada next month ahead of a possible U.S. rollout, reported the Wall Street Journal. The citrus-like, iced tea-flavored beer will have approximately 4% alcohol content but no caffeine. Molson executives said during a meeting with analysts that the new products should help spur sales so the company can put less reliance on cost-cutting to drive its profit, added a Reuters report. It also seeks to make beer more attractive to people who have moved on to wine or cocktails. "Someone else is eating our lunch in the alcohol space," Molson Coors CEO Peter Swinburn said at the meeting. Coors Light Iced T will go on sale first in Canada, where consumers are interested in flavored beers and other refreshing drinks, Molson executives said. They did not, however, rule out an expansion into the United States.
