Two New Wachusett Beers


Wachusett Strawberry White: Strawberry White is a Traditional Belgian Ale. The complex, spicy flavors of the traditional Belgian yeast are offset by the delicious strawberry flavor. It is brewed with 160 lbs of strawberry puree per batch.

Wachusett Light IPA: The world’s first Light IPA is our American version of an English bitter. This is an easy drinking “pub” or session beer with only 121 calories, but is packed with flavor that won’t disappoint.

Over the past few years Bacardi has been challenging fellow rum behemoth Captain Morgan in the Captain’s core spiced segment with a newcomer, a spiced rum called Bacardi OakHeart.

Debuting nationally this month, Captain Morgan White Rum is 80-proof and retails at $15.99 a 750-ml. Diageo says it’s backing the launch with a “robust marketing mix,” including television, print and online ads.
