Brewery news USA: Heinekenís tequila-flavored Desperados to be available in the entire US next year
Spanish-sounding, tequila-flavored Desperados, which is owned by Heineken, is making its U.S. debut after being sold overseas for more than 15 years. The brewer's U.S. importing division began selling bottles in Florida and Georgia earlier this month and has plans for national distribution next year, AdAge reported on April 24.

The ad campaign, which debuts next week, will target urban markets. "We are trying to deliver on that high-energy, nightlife type of scene," said Raul Esquer, the Desperados brand manager for Heineken USA.

The importer will use the same campaign that is rolling out internationally for the brand, which is sold in more than 60 countries. The agency is Dufresne Corrigan Scarlett, an independent shop based in Paris. The campaign, called "At Dusk, We Rise," includes two TV spots (above) that are full of music and dancing. A big chunk of the spending will be on digital and out-of-home ads.

Desperados is the latest example of beer marketers relying on flavors and higher-alcohol products to lure millennial drinkers. Anheuser-Busch InBev, for instance, began seeking more party-drinkers with the 2012 launch of Bud Light Platinum, and has continued to expand its line of Bud Light Lime branded margarita-inspired flavored malt beverages.

Brewery news India: Kaltenberg beer to be launched in Goa
Corking open a new 'super-premium' category in India's beer market, a German brand has launched its lager in Goa. Kaltenberg beer, owned by German firm Konig Ludwig International, will be manufactured by CMJ Breweries Private Ltd at their plant in Meghalaya, and will retail in Goa at 75 for a pint. Until now, the super-premium category only included imported beers, and holds a tiny market share of around 5 lakh (1 lakh = 100 000) cases a year, The Times of India reported on April 24.

Konig Ludwig International is owned by Bavarian royal Prince Luitpold von Bayern, great grandson of the last king of Bavaria. Kaltenberg is claimed to be one of the oldest beers in the world, courtesy of the royal family that started the first brewery in 1260.

"Goa is the Mecca of beer, and the best state to launch this new super-premium category of beer, called so because all the ingredients are imported from Germany. Even though the beer is indigenously manufactured, the end product will be identical to the beverage manufactured in Germany as the brewing process is the same, as well as the recipe and climatic conditions," claimed Rohit Jain, chairman, CMJ Breweries.
