Spring 2015: Anheuser-Busch InBev will be launching a tequila-flavored beer next spring called Oculto, which means “hidden” in Spanish. In effort to attract a younger crowd that chooses liquor over beer, Oculto will be made without tequila, but will be aged with wood from tequila barrels and contain 6 percent alcohol by volume (ABV).
