InBev is set to launch Stella Artois in pint-sized cans in the UK.

The 568ml four-can packs are priced at GBP5.25 (US$10.26) and will be available to independent and convenience retailers in the country from this month, the company said today (5 August).

InBev is also helping independent retailers generate incremental beer business with the launch of price-marked promotional packs on brands including Stella Artois, Beck's and Tennent's Lager.

The initiative is aimed at attracting more consumers to the beer fixture and boost impulse purchase through the offer of 'instant added-value' for shoppers, the UK unit said.

"Price-marked packs are extremely popular with independent retail shoppers because they communicate the promotional price and highlight the extra value that is available to them immediately," said Simon Harrison, commercial director - independent off trade at InBev UK.

New Stella Artois 4% will also be available in a price-marked format - offering 8x440ml cans for GBP6.25 when it is launched in the off-trade this month.
