Move over Mike’s Hard Lemonade, White Claws, and Bud Light Seltzers, there’s a new premixed canned beverage on the scene. An adult version of Mountain Dew containing 5% alcohol is being branded as “Hard Mtn Dew” and is now available in Las Vegas.

Produced and owned by PepsiCo., the citrus-flavored and caffeinated Mountain Dew was the one and only version of the drink between the 1940’s-1980’s. A diet version was introduced in 1988 as well as Mountain Dew Red but that version was discontinued in the same year. Additional varieties and limited time productions continue to be offered today.

The flavored malt beverage, Hard Mtn Dew launched with four distinct offerings, “Mountain Dew“, “Baja Blast“, “Black Cherry“, and “Watermelon“. All four varieties are caffeine-free with no added sugar and are 100 calories per serving.

The process of making Hard Mtn Dew is similar to that of making beer so it is not a gluten-free product. You must be of legal drinking age to purchase and to visit the official Hard Mtn Dew website.

Not sure which flavor to try? Let your inner animal decide. Each flavor of Hard Mtn Dew features a unique animal on its can. You’ll find a screeching American Eagle with its talons extended on the green “Mountain Dew” can. A vicious Viper lurks on the red “Watermelon” can. You’ll find a hungry Black Bear on the “Black Cherry” can while a very angry Great White Shark swims about on the blue “Baja Blast” can.

These are sure to become a Las Vegas favorite in no time. Enjoy and drink responsibly!

They are available to purchase in 24 oz. single-served cans, a 12-pack of 12 oz. cans, and a variety mix pack with three cans of each flavor. So how much is this new amazing beverage? Take a look below to see what I found at local Las Vegas stores.
