By launching Fruit Lager, we are extending the drinking occasion for those consumers, via an innovative product that combines subtle premium lager bitterness with Kopparberg’s expertise in fruit refreshment that fans know and love.”

Kopparberg Fruit Lager will be available to purchase in a pack of four 330ml bottles in the off-trade, and in a single 330ml bottle in the on-trade, across the UK.
