Class Up Your Holiday Season With Champagne Bottles Filled With Miller High Life
A few years ago, I went to a bar with a couple of friends with the intention of getting as drunk as I could while spending as little money as possible. As a result, I kicked off my night with a shot of Evan Williams and a bottle of Miller High Life, which sparked a discussion about what’s the best beer to order when you only kind of care about how it tastes.
When the bartender heard me try to justify my argument by referring to it as “the champagne of beers” (shoutout to Miller’s marketing department), he grabbed my bottle off of the bar and poured it into a champagne flute that he’d seemingly produced out of nowhere. When New Year’s Eve rolled around that year, I was inspired to pick up a six-pack of High Life and fill the bottles with Andre— AKA “the beer of champagnes”— and quickly learned the error of my ways due to the hangover I woke up to the next day.
Thankfully, Miller has decided to combine the best of both worlds by bottling High Life in champagne bottles just in time for the holiday season, and I for one could not be more excited:
[T]he 25.4-ounce bottles are clear, showcasing the straw-colored beer. The top of the limited-release bottles are wrapped in gold foil held tight by a red band proclaiming High Life the Champagne of Beers. The label features the brand’s icon, the Girl in the Moon.
Miller tested similar bottles in Chicago last year, and while they’ve expanded to Milwaukee with this run, I can’t deny I’m disappointed they’re only available in a couple of markets. With that said, I would happily trade a pack of beer from the trendy brewery near my apartment in Brooklyn with anyone who happens to get their hands on one of these.
My DMs are wide open.
