On Thursday, May 13, Miller’s MGD will affix cases of hard seltzer to a rocket and send the oh-so-trendy beverage hurtling into the atmosphere. Beer fans can suggest the seltzer brand that most deserves to be propelled from the planet at mgd.com/seltzerlaunch.
“Miller makes beer for people who love beer,” says Sofia Colucci, Vice President Miller Family of Brands. “Other brands, including some of our siblings, make other things, too. That’s great. We launch beers, and we launch everything else into space.”
The seltzer launch kicks off with a 60-second video and will culminate with a broadcast on sibling brand @MillerLite’s Facebook and Twitter channels on May 13 at 4:00 PM EST.
The seltzer launch is the first partnership between Miller and agency Mischief @ No Fixed Address.
Bianca Guimaraes, Partner and Executive Creative Director at Mischief @ No Fixed Address, said: “Every beer brand is launching a seltzer, so it only felt right to do the same. We spent a lot of time debating if we should bury seltzers, shoot them off into space or drop them into the mouth of an erupting volcano. But sending them into a black hole seemed to make the most sense.”
“For years, Miller has been an expert in brewing – from Lite to High Life to MGD – and we’ve never changed or compromised our love of great beer,” said Colucci. “Because we’re a beer. Not a seltzer. In case we haven’t made that clear yet.”
About Miller Brewing Company
Miller Brewing Company was founded in 1855 by Frederick J. Miller when he purchased the Plank Road Brewery in Milwaukee, a city he chose as the best place for a brewery given its access to great water. Miller Lite, the original great-tasting light pilsner beer, (MillerLite.com, Facebook.com/MillerLite, @MillerLite on Twitter, YouTube.com/MillerLite) was introduced nationally in 1975 and is among the top-five selling beers in the United States. The brewery’s oldest enduring beer is Miller High Life (MillerHighLife.com, Facebook.com/MillerHighLife, @MillerHighLife on Twitter). Known as the Champagne of Beers, it was introduced in 1903 and still is brewed with the same yeast strain that Miller carried in his pocket from Germany. Miller Genuine Draft (MGD.com, Facebook.com/MillerGenuineDraft, @Miller_Global on Twitter), introduced in 1986, is the original cold-filtered, packaged draft beer. Miller Brewing Company is part of the North America business unit of Molson Coors Beverage Company.
