light beers.

experience with the breakthrough new bottle design," said Ryan Reis, senior
director of Miller Lite. "In our testing, consumers overwhelmingly preferred
the new bottle to the standard beer bottle. We're proud of the new design and

grab a Miller Lite, you'll know it."

targeted focus groups,, 4sight inc. collected key insights to create a bottle
that would reflect what consumers were looking for in their drinking
experience and give them a new tool to take their Miller Time celebrations
with friends to the next level.

new bottle from Miller Lite will take this category to new places," said
Stuart Leslie, president of 4sight. "We are proud to help Miller Lite use
design as a tool to influence the market and continue to be an industry
