MILLER HIGH LIFE: INTRODUCING A 115-YEAR-OLD BRAND TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF DRINKERS

Miller High Life is one of America’s true classic brands. Founded in 1903, born out of Frederick Miller’s vision that the good things in life don’t have to be rare or expensive, the Champagne of Beers was brewed to be the best of its kind. Consistently brewed with quality ingredients, champagne-like bubbles, and put in a clear champagne-style bottle since the beginning, Miller High Life put Miller Brewing Company on the map, making quality beer accessible to all.

Since late 2016, significant efforts were made to restore the brand’s reputation after decades of decline, reminding drinkers that High Life is a quality yet affordable beer with the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. To drive sustained future growth, it is imperative to introduce this brand to a generation of new drinkers, and show them why High Life is not like any other beer, but is special and unique as the Champagne of Beers. In this session, learn how High Life is modernizing its marketing to recruit new drinkers through influencers, PR, digital/social, and On-Premise platforms.
