Why:    Youth-attractive alcopops, or flavored malt beverages (FMBs):        
  • Are pre-mixed, sweetened alcoholic drinks that taste like juice and soda
  • Are packaged in brightly-colored cans, similar to energy drinks
  • Are priced low enough to effectively target underage drinkers, especially young women
  • Can be shelved wherever beer is available - including convenience stores and gas stations
  • Come in "binge in a can" supersized 24 oz. single-serving containers with 12 percent alcohol - the equivalent of 4-5 beers and cannot be consumed responsibly by any age drinker
  • Encourage underage consumption leading to serious alcohol-related harm
