Anheuser-Busch is introducing a new, bowtie-shaped beer can that mirrors its Budweiser logo.
The St. Louis-based subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev NV said Wednesday that the new cans will be available in a special 8-pack nationwide beginning May 6.
The can has been in development since 2010 and that there is a 16-step process to create the cans.
There is a draw back to the new can.
You have to give up a little over a half ounce of bear because the new design will only hold 11.3 ounces of beer, compared with the traditional 12-ounce can.
Budweiser's bowtie logo first appeared in a national advertising campaign in 1956.
