SABMiller is releasing a 4% ABV beer in the UK to capitalise on consumer demand for lower strength lagers.

Kozel is a Czech lager which is brewed in the village of Velké Popovice, near Prague.

It will be launched in draught at 100 selected sites from the end of September. A number of outlets will host consumer sampling events.

Kozel, which means “goat” in Czech, has been brewed in Velké Popovice since 1874. Families from the village have worked at the brewery for generations.

Nick Miller, managing director of Miller Brands, said: “Last November we announced our intention to expand our portfolio. We’ve carried out rigorous and extensive research to establish exactly which brand would be the best fit.

“Kozel offers an authentic Czech taste, with genuine and distinctive provenance and proposition.

“Our research also showed that drinkers are looking for something slightly lower in strength and at 4% ABV, Kozel satisfies this demand.”

U-verse continues expansion, rolls out service in Charleston, S.C.

AT&T is continuing to extend the reach of its U-verse IPTV service, saying today that it would begin rolling out the product in the Charleston, S.C. area. The operator said services offered would include high-speed Internet as well as voice services.

South Carolina in 2006 passes a statewide video franchise law that allows local governments to opt into the U-verse network. AT&T, shortly after the law was enacted, announced plans to spend $250 million upgrading its network there and expanding Internet technology and broadband deployment. The state was the first of the former BellSouth states in which AT&T rolled out U-verse bundled services.

“Cable has been the only game in town for too long, and we’re excited to change that today in Charleston,” said Alison Hall, vice president and general manager, AT&T North and South Carolina. “We know Charleston customers want a better choice to break free from cable, and AT&T U-verse is the answer. And we’ll continue to make U-verse TV even better for customers with regular upgrades and new cool applications that enhance your TV experience.”

U-verse provides users the ability to:

  • Manage recordings, and download and watch hit TV shows from a qualifying smartphone with U-verse Mobile (watch the video);
  • Manage and playback recorded programs from a single DVR on any U-verse connected TV in the house with Total Home DVR;
  • Choose and watch up to four channels at one time with the exclusive My Multiview app (watch the video);
  • Program DVR recordings from a Web-connected mobile phone or PC;
  • Set up personalized, on-screen weather, sports, traffic and stock information via AT&T U-bar; and,
  • Check the current weather conditions and forecasts in any U.S. city with Weather On Demand, as well as other services.

Packages include a range of speeds, with the fastest downstream speeds up to 24 Mbps. All AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet packages include wireless home or office networking at no extra cost, and access to the entire national AT&T Wi-Fi network included in their plan at no extra charge.

AT&T also recently announced improvements in its network that will allow users to simultaneously watch up to four HD streams in their homes at one time.

U-verse added more than 209,000 users in the second quarter this year, passing the 2.5 million subscriber mark, and hit $1 billion in revenue, a first for the service.
