Miller Lite is the great tasting, less filling beer that created the American light beer category in 1975. Triple-hops brewed for great pilsner taste, Miller Lite is the only beer to win four gold awards in the World Beer Cup® for best American-Style light lager (2006, 2002, 1998 and 1996). It also won the gold medal for best American-style Lager or Light Lager at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.
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.
