Miller Lite Celebrates "Beersgiving" As Friends Reconnect On Night Before Thanksgiving

  Miller Lite Celebrates "Beersgiving" As Friends Reconnect On Night Before

Miller Lite Helps Facebook Fans Celebrate Together by Sponsoring $50,000 in
Miller Times

CHICAGO, Nov. 12, 2012

CHICAGO, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- More than half of Americans gather with
friends on the night before Thanksgiving, so Miller Lite is going to sponsor
$50,000 of those celebrations this Beersgiving.  Legal drinking-age consumers
can head to the Miller Lite Facebook page at 1 p.m. Eastern Time, Tuesday,
November 13, 2012, to receive one of 2,000 $25 gift cards so they can enjoy a
Beersgiving Miller Time with their friends.


The concept of Beersgiving is founded upon the spirit of reconnecting with
friends, which is how 80 million Americans age 21 and older spend the night
before Thanksgiving, according to a survey conducted by Kelton Research* on
behalf of Miller Lite.  Close to half of consumers surveyed say they look
forward to Beersgiving because it is a great night to catch up with people
they don't see as often as they'd like, and the most popular beverage of
choice is beer, with one-third of drinkers toasting their friendships over a
brew that night.

"Thanksgiving Eve has long been a night when friends reconnect over a beer, so
we want to say thanks by sponsoring their Beersgiving celebrations," said Ryan
Reis, Miller Lite senior director of marketing.  "Whether it's the group of
friends you grew up with or a buddy, who now lives across the country, getting
together, having a beer or two and sharing memories while creating new ones,
is what Miller Time is all about."

The $25 gift cards will be given to the first 2,000 eligible entrants, who
will receive their Miller Lite Beersgiving gift card by mail. Entrants must be
a U.S. resident 21 and older. Offer not valid in California or Texas. For

Additional results from the Kelton Research survey on Beersgiving for Miller
Lite include:

  o Over half (57 percent) of men ages 21-34 often spend Thanksgiving Eve with
  o More people in the 21-34 age group than those 35 and older (52 percent vs.
    27 percent) have made spending this night with friends a habit.
  o More than two in three (68 percent) men ages 21-34 have spent time with
    friends on Thanksgiving Eve.
  o Close to two-thirds (65 percent) of beer drinkers say they've celebrated
    with friends the night before Thanksgiving, versus 43 percent of those who
    don't drink beer.
  o Nearly a quarter (24 percent) of men 21-34 enjoy Thanksgiving Eve more
    than Thanksgiving Day.
  o Nearly four in 10 Americans would rather have a beer than a slice of pie
    on Thanksgiving Eve.

*Kelton Research's Miller Lite Beersgiving survey was conducted October 11-18,
2012, among 1,056 nationally representative Americans ages 21 and older, using
an email invitation and an online survey.
