MILWAUKEE -- Miller Brewing Co. debuts a limited-edition beer created as part of its ongoing celebration of the company's 150 years of American brewing heritage.
The commemorative 1855 Celebration Lager, a full-flavored golden lager that will be available on a limited-edition basis throughout November and December, is a special, hand-crafted brew indicative of Miller's long devotion to founder Frederick J. Miller's vision of "quality, uncompromising and unchanging."
"Miller's 150th anniversary has been a time of reflection for our company, to recognize and celebrate the principles and spirit that have brought us to where we are today, and to carry them into the future," said Miller president and CEO Norman Adami. "Frederick Miller created the first 'Miller Time' when he sold his first barrel of beer in the fall of 1855, and we invite America's beer drinkers to join us for a toast of that historic moment with this great beer honoring our founder's vision."
The 1855 Celebration Lager boasts a creamy white head, pleasing malt aroma and subtle, distinctive taste that exemplifies the care and craftsmanship in which Miller has taken such great pride since the brewery's inception. The brew will be available nationally in 6-pack bottles and 24 loose bottle cases beginning in November.
"We've said it again and again this year -- a milestone of this magnitude calls for something more," Adami said. "And as the brewery that always strives to deliver 'more' -- more color, more aroma, more taste, more character in our beers -- we couldn't be more excited to offer the 1855 Celebration Lager to beer drinkers who want more from their beer."
