MMMM Beer, And Caffeinated Beer at That!

All right, just what we needed. Forget all those low carb light beers...here's a beer that will not only lift your spirits, but it will keep you up all night to...drink more beer! Yee Haw!

Brewer Anheuser-Busch says it will introduce a caffeinated, sweet-flavored beer for twentysomething club goers to compete with the flavored rums and vodkas gaining ground on the dance floor.
B(E) infuses beer with caffeine, guarana and ginseng, along with berry aromas for a sweeter, yet more tart taste at 6.6 percent alcohol by volume, said company brewmaster Nathaniel Davis.
The new beer has a relatively high carbohydrate count, despite a trend in the industry highlighting lower-carb beers to match popular U.S. diet plans.
