Anheuser-Busch's New Arrivals: Bud Light Platinum and Baby Clydesdale

Beer giant Anheuser-Busch has announced that they will debut Bud Lite Platinum in January.

The new brew will contain 6% alcohol by volume, making it a higher alcohol content than the current Bud Light, which contains 4.2%. We're sure this will appeal to college girls who want a beer that can give them more buzz but will be less filling.

Bud Light Platinum is said to have an early 2012 release date. Here's a copy of the certificate of label approval, filed with the Alcohol Trade Bureau.

This adds to the Bud Light family

of products that no one actually admits to drinking, which includes Bud

Light, Bud Light Lime, Bud Light Golden Wheat and Bud Light/Clamato

Chelada (a nightmarish mix of Bud Light, Clamato, and lime).

On a

higher note, another Clydesdale was born. Named after former Saint Louis

Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa, the little horse is expected to be one of

the lead Clydesdales when he grows up.
