Introducing Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita

Bud Light Straw Ber Rita

Earlier this year, Anheuser-Busch launched Bud Light Lime-A-Rita. The brewery blended Bud Light Lime and margarita mix together for beer/cocktail crossover, with a kick. Lime-A-Ritas are typically 8% ABV. Rita was an instant success. AB has had trouble keeping the shelves stocked with the product.

On the heels of Lime-A-Rita’s success, AB aims to release a variant – Straw-Ber-Rita. The beer based margarita is now introduced with strawberry flavoring. Mike Sundet, VP at Bud Light had this to say of the original product launch:  “This is our take on the traditional margarita.  Beer drinkers were already mixing Bud Light Lime into margaritas to create ‘beer ritas’; Lime-a-Rita just adds a new level of convenience by providing a beverage with the perfect balance of flavors.”

Availability: 8 oz cans
Arrival: TBA

6% ABV

  • Big John

    We have them in Charleston, WV. Only seen 24oz cans, at 8% alcohol.

    Go to the store and get a jar of strawberry jam (had actual strawberries in it), Now, imagine that with alcohol. It’s amazing.

  • whitney j

    Has anyone had an allergic reaction from drinking these? After drinking one i start to turn red all over my face and neck. Not sure what would cause this. Ive had the original but light lime a ritas and dont have issues with them. And im not allergic to strawberries, so i dont know whats in them that i could be allergic to. Didnt know if anyone else had the same problem. They are delicious though, i still drink them lol

    • Eric

      My wife is having the same problem right now. Would be good to know what causes it.

    • Austin

      Just had the same reaction. Red all over my face, neck, and down my chest and back. I don’t normally have a strawberry allergy.

      • ReallyNow

        It’s not real strawberry…..it’s an artificial flavoring you’d probably find in candies that are labeled to taste like strawberry, with RED 40 dye’s in it, to make it red. You could be allergic to these, or sensitive to them, or just a normal human being who’s system doesn’t like to filter out this toxic, artificial, shit.

      How many did you drink? LOL!!

    • SargeGBB

      My mother had only a few sips before she noticed her eyes and nose were runny and her face/neck went totally red and splotchy as well. The drink seriously put her into anaphylactic shock from only a couple of sips. We thought she was getting a cold or sinus infection.. but it hit her very suddenly. Next day, she woke up totally fine.

      In addition, she’s never been sensitive to red dye and drinks artificial fruit sodas/other red drinks all the time. The only thing that she’s allergic to is penicillin. Wondering what the heck this is! Glad someone else posted on it.

        I’ve been dealing w/ an itchy rash for about 2 weeks now. It’s on odd parts of my body, like the back of my knee, stomach, and inner thigh,(never on my face, neck, or chest tho) it appears as a simple small bump that itches like crazy, then gets more rash like w/ a bunch of lil bumps. I’ve been drinking Straberitas every night after work for about 2 weeks now (4-6 of the small cans) is it an allergic reaction to SOMETHING in the beer based adult beverage? I’d like to have some answers to this question…obviously I love this new bev, and it saddens me to think I can’t have it any more :(

    • Nathaniel Anderson

      My sister just had the same reaction: red splotchy rash looking redness on face, neck, and down back. Have no idea what would cause this. She also noticed slight difficulty breathing, aka odd breathing behavior, feeling the need to breath more deeply than usual.Would love to know what might be the issue.

    • blue_strat

      drank the lime a ritas 1st with no probs. then we tried the strawberry ones.1st couple of times we drank the straw-ber-ritas my gf and I got headaches. not sure what it was, but after the 3rd time it hasn’t done it all. the best of both worlds …. the taste of a mixed drink with a beer kick. you can drink them all nite (at home of course) and still remember what you did … unlike the liquor variety of margarita. Bud scores a home run.

    • Candace

      I did last night. I’m not allergic to due or strawberries or any food/additive that I know of. I started getting hot. My nose got numb. My arms were splotchy along with my face. My skin felt like it was on fire! I had to take Benadryl and calamine lotion to make it subside.

      • Candace

        dye*

    • Kindra

      I had bad reactions to the limaritas.. not the strawberry ones.. I have no idea what its from but id really like to know.. I like them too much and it sucks!

  • elhoneebee

  • leda

    where is this available,and what state?

  • nana

    they’re here in MO too!

  • boobs59

    Anybody know carbs or calories????

    • Linda Lu

      That’s what I’d like to know as well. And sugar. I have become addicted to these. GREAT !! I open several cans and put in a container in the freezer. Just like a marguarita.

  • http://www.facebook.com/bevgrant121610 Beverly Grant

    why does the can say 8 percent alc and the post says 6 percent alcohol, and also what is the sugar, carb and calorie count of this product.

    • blue_strat

      I seen that too. wth?

  • xterra

    Why don’t you fatties all go chow down a bunch of Big Macs? They have the same amount of calories as a 16oz can of this crap!

    • blue_strat

      then the obvious thing (for you) is not to drink them. problem solved. now, quit your whining. you’re embarrassing yourself.

  • http://www.facebook.com/chris.coleman.10 Chris Coleman

    Bought a couple 24 oz cans, I’m sure these have more than 1 serving! If my calculations are right each 24 oz can has 3 serving at 8% alcohol or 1 serving at 24% alcohol! MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!

  • Fern

  • blue_strat

    been drinkin it for a while now. very good. very tasty and not filling at all. now you can hammer margaritas all nite and still find your way home. lol.

  • MelissaOBX

    I had the same awful headaches, break outs, and sinus infection symptoms that several other people reported. I’m anticipating a recall. I don’t have any known allergies to anything in the drink. I did think they were tasty before the onset, though.

    My mom was visiting the Grant’s Farm last Saturday. After we had lunch there we were on the way to the Bird’s show. On the way to the show we got a free smaple Lime-Rita (half can),after I had 2 slips I didn’t feel good (heavy head), so I stopped but my mom continued to drink hers. Till the show almost started, she suddenly lost consciousness, face grayed and soaked in cold sweat, her body totally towards me (Luckyly, we were sitting at the seat!)……With all the people’s help, she was sent to Emergency Room within 20 mins. When I changed her clothese there, all her neck skin and upper chest skin were so red… After head CT scan, chest X-ray and blood works, nothing seems wrong (we are lucky). Two hours later we back to home, she felt fine just felt weak, the red skin actually only lasted less than 30 min.
    I feel we are so lucky to got all the helps from the people we don’t know. As a foreginer here, that moment when I held her ice-cold fingers, and staring her gray face, I thought “God, is the time she is goodbye to me without any words?”.
    Now I notice some other peoples post the reaction to, thanks for sharing!

      I too had a reaction to the Lime a Rita. The first time I drank it, no problem. 2nd time, my face got red and splotchy, but I thought it was related to sun exposure so I didn’t make note of it. 3rd time, my reaction was SEVERE. My face, hands, neck, and back became red and splotchy. Then my face puffed up and my throat became tight and I was having trouble breathing. I almost went to the hospital, but the symptoms calmed down after taking 2 Benadryl. The only other time I had a similar reaction was after I ate an unusually large amount of raw, white onions as part of an appetizer, but the reaction was not nearly as severe.

      It is so scary to hear about all these reactions. I hope we don’t have any long-term or internal damage. I really hope they take this toxic product off the shelf.

  • vickie

    I turn blood red in face, neck, chest & arms and feel hot as hell.not labored breathig. But HOT. go to bed and sleep and I’m fine. I think?? Lol
