New bottle at Vegas pools, clubs gets beer colder faster

A new, pool-friendly beer bottle has just landed in Las Vegas.

Anheuser-Busch has released an 11.5-ounce reclosable aluminum bottle at nightclubs and pools throughout the city.

Bud Light Platinum will be the first beer delivered in the new aluminum bottle.

The bottle design features a twist-off cap and aluminum build that’s more than 50 percent stronger than a standard can and helps the beer get colder faster, according to Rob McCarthy, Bud Light’s vice president.

Las Vegas retail stores carry the product in 10-packs, and Anheuser-Busch plans to release the bottle nationally later this year.
