    I assume you saw the same e-mail I did - I was also wondering about it. Looks like it's in Budweiser Plaza according to the e-mail. Not sure if it is offered anywhere else. I suspect it is kinda like green beer on St Patrick's Day. They may have just added some red coloring to the bud light....

    All I know is it comes in 12oz cans. Kinda odd since it's called "Battle Red Brew draft"

    I tried it at the Colts game in Bud Plaza. It was only sold as a draft, not in cans. 16 ounces for $3.50. It was pretty good. It tasted like Michelob Amber. I suspect that is all it is because it was in a Michelob tub. If it was a Bud product, I would think the kegs would be in a Bud tub. I liked it. Not sure if it was the price or the fact that I was thirsty.

    I will be getting some this week for sure.

    That's a much better deal than 12oz cans. Looks like there's a typo on the texans website:

    Sorry, I was gone from the PC all day yesterday. It was amber, like a dark beer, but not heavy at all. I drank like 3 of them without feeling like a ate a turkey.

    As far as the typo on the site, unless they are going to can it this week, I have to think they made a mistake. It was entirely draft at the Indy game. No cans in sight.
