SAPPORO PURE is ideal for consumers who appreciate a conscientious life filled with great experiences best enjoyed with a truly satisfying beer.
“More and more consumers are taking a balanced approach in their choices in alcoholic beverages and we wanted to meet that expectation with an exceptional light beer.” said Scott Pederson, Senior Vice President, Marketing, SAPPORO U.S.A. “With Sapporo continuing to grow in popularity, PURE is a natural expansion of our portfolio. Our Japanese brewers have been actively overseeing the development of the beer in North America, taking great care in getting the taste just right.”
The golden-hued beer is crisp and effervescent, featuring bright floral notes with a subtle hop bitterness. As one of the few superior light beers on the market with 90 or fewer calories, SAPPORO PURE will be targeted to meet consumer demands for new products that complement their pursuit of life’s best moments.
