ALL CANS ON DECK! Introducing THE BREWZIE: Bridging the worlds of Natural Light & Sperry, one sturdy step at a time

Natural Light Teams Up With Sperry To Upcycle YOUR Well-Loved Boat Shoes Into A Trusty, Traction Enhanced Beer-Holder For Summer!


Ahoy! This summer, spilled beer will be a thing of the past, thanks to co-captains Natural Light and Sperry. The two brands have teamed up to transform your well-loved boat shoes into a one-of-a-kind Brewzie that will keep your beer cold—and stable. The Brewzie, featuring Sperry’s renowned razor-cut Wave-Siping™ technology, is a truly unique and streamlined beer-holder that will give your trusty Top-Siders a new lease on life AND keep your Natural Light secure on deck, all summer long.


Sperry and Nattys’ Brewzie is specifically designed for maximum stability by the water. Now, we’re all about rolling with the flow of the tide, but we don’t want our beer slipping and sliding across the boat deck. Unlike a typical neoprene beer-holder that offers no balance, the Brewzie provides Sperry’s signature traction technology, a fresh option for those who prefer some coastal livin’. This summer, for 165 fans, Natty and Sperry will be upcycling their boat shoes into a Brewzie, which will sail right back to them along with a 30% discount on a new pair of boat shoes from Sperry.

“Natural Light is a beer best sipped ice cold on the shoreline of your choice, which means our cans tend to get WET. Now, beer spills on the boat, at the beach, or pool-side at the BBQ will be a thing of the past, thanks to the Brewzie and Sperry’s original and iconic traction technology,” said Krystyn Stowe, Head of Marketing, Natural Family.

“Sperry boat shoes are an iconic piece of life on the water, while Natural Light is the go-to beer up and down the coastlines. They call us ‘Shore Champagne’ for a reason, after all. This was our chance to bring our brands together to create something special, memorable and functional to celebrate life by the water. Say goodbye to ‘beers overboard.”

Don’t leave your lightly worn Sperrys high and dry this summer, and rest a-shore-d you can enjoy a cold beer aboard your seaward vessel.

“Sperry was born on the water, and we invented the world’s first boat shoe, an iconic staple of summertime style that has been loved for generations. By teaming with Natural Light to create The Brewzie, we’ve given our fans an ingenious and responsible way to give their beloved Sperrys a new lease on life, so that they can keep making memories on the water. And they can do it while keeping that fresh Natty cool and on deck.” said James Mackenzie, Senior Global Brand Marketing Director at Sperry.

This first-ever collaboration with Sperry marks the latest program from Natural Light, following its brand refresh earlier this year that reintroduced the classic tagline “Act Natural” alongside a permanent, nationwide introduction of a vintage-inspired can design. By combining Sperry’s signature traction technology with Natural Light’s iconic refreshment, The Brewzie becomes the ultimate beer-holder designed specifically for enjoying a cold one by the water. With a Brewzie aboard, it’s all cans on deck.

Natural Light was introduced in 1977 as Anheuser-Busch’s first reduced-calorie light beer. It’s brewed with a blend of premium hops and a combination of malt and corn producing a clean flavor, light body and satisfying refreshment. Natural Light invites fans to Act Natural and confidently pursue what brings them happiness, despite the fads and expectations that surround us every day. In 2023, Natural Light introduced a new, permanent can nationwide, a vintage, yet sleek look and feel that was inspired by one of the brand’s first can designs from 1979. Act Natural and the new cans signify a focus on celebrating the coastal, boat-centric lifestyle that has been synonymous with Natural Light and our fans for decades.
