Natty Light seltzer is now Nationals Light — well, sort of

Anheuser-Busch introduced its version of a hard seltzer earlier this year, Natural Light Seltzer, and now, thanks to a local distributor, its cans are showing support for the Washington Nationals’ World Series bid.

A limited edition number of Natty Light cans now say Nationals Light, but the cans weren’t actually printed that way.

Eight employees (and hearty Nats fans) at beer distributor Capital Eagle Inc. actually hand-taped the word “Nationals” onto 4,000 Natty Seltzer cans.

They’ll be sold exclusively at kiosks within Nationals Park, as long as supplies last, at $12 a can (hand-taped label included).

Natty Light Seltzer comes in two flavors: cherry-lime and mango-peach.

Spiked seltzer turned out to be a mega beverage trend this year, with U.S. sales up almost 200% in the past year.
