Michelob/Michelob Light are 4.7% ABV pale lager beer developed by Adolphus Busch in 1896 as a “draught beer for connoisseurs” In 1961, Anheuser-Busch produced a pasteurized version of Michelob/Michelob Light….which allowed legal shipment of the beer across state lines. Bottled beer began to be shipped soon after….and the brand was introduced in cans in 1966…..as bottled  Michelob/Michelob Light was originally sold in a uniquely shaped bottle named the teardrop bottle…. because it resembled a water droplet. The teardrop bottle was awarded a medal from the Institute of Design in 1962. Five years later the bottle was redesigned for efficiency in the production line. This bottle was used until 2002 when it was dropped in favor of a traditional bottle. The teardrop bottle was used again from January 2007 to October 2008.
