All the brands will end next spring. Wholesalers have reportedly been notified of the discontinuation. Oculto is a tequila-flavored beer that was launched last year in an attempt to gain market share among Millennials.
We actually get asked about Beck’s Dark often (at least once a month). Because it was discontinued by AB Inbev in the US market there’s nothing we can do 🙁 I usually recommend Warsteiner Dunkel as an alternative. If you can’t find it then I would buy a different dunkel or dark lager .
Oculto is a light style lager blended with beer that’s been aged on tequila barrel staves. This doesn’t mean it’s been barrel aged, it means that it’s had some staves soaked in it. The beer is also infused with blue agave and other natural flavors. Along with the malt, there’s lime and agave syrup.
