Anheuser-Busch has launched two seasonal beers under its Michelob brand.

Michelob Celebrate Cherry and Michelob Celebrate Chocolate are available in most US states through the end of the year.

The brewer said that Michelob Celebrate Cherry is made with natural cherry juice and aged on dark cherries, giving it a deep garnet colour and the flavour of black cherries. Michelob Celebrate Cherry is brewed with Munich, carapils caramel malts and European aroma hops.

Michelob Celebrate Chocolate, introduced in 2006, is brewed with caramel and roasted malts, and a variety of Hallertau/Tettnang and Alsace hops, and aged on real cocoa beans, giving it a chocolate aroma and complex dark cocoa taste.

Both lagers are 8.5% alcohol by volume (ABV).

"These are truly special beers that look gorgeous and are sinfully delicious," said Eric Beck, brewmaster, Anheuser-Busch. "Serve them at room temperature, in crystal snifters, to highlight each beer's elegant color and aroma."

"Whatever the occasion, we want to ensure we have something for everyone," said Cindy Trusler, brand manager, Anheuser-Busch, Inc. "The superb taste and unique and sleek packages make them great gifts for adults looking for an exceptional addition to their holiday table."
