Third Shift Amber Lager is the first release in a series of award-winning beers brewed by the Band of Brewers - a group of talented brewers across the MillerCoors network. Third Shift is as much about collaboration as it is invention - the shared pride that comes from creating something truly great. The Band of Brewers joined forces to create Third Shift - a smooth and easy drinking amber lager - well balanced with a sweet maltiness that dominates slightly over a clean - hop bitterness. The result is a gold-medal winning amber lager that is complex yet well-balanced.
Frederick J. Miller founded Miller Brewing Company in 1855. Adolph Coors opened Coors Brewing Company in 1873. Both companies forged successful paths through ingenuity and innovation, their respective hard work producing over one million barrels each annually by 1955. In 2008, SABMiller and Molson Coors entered a U.S. joint venture to create MillerCoors. The company continues to build upon its success, both as the number two U.S. brewer and home to the second best-selling beer in America, Coors Light.
