Free Beer and a Dive Bar? Miller High Life Wants to Put Both in Your Backyard

Here’s how you can become the proud owner of this dive bar.

With bars being closed due to the pandemic and cold weather on its way, Milwaukeeans have had to get creative to recreate the bar scene at home.

Nothing can quite replicate the experience of being a regular at your favorite dive bar, but if you’re missing the sticky floors and wood paneling of your go-to spot a little extra this week, Miller High Life is giving you a chance to recreate the experience in your own backyard.

Fans can enter to win a decked out, quirky, beer-filled dive bar for their backyard in Miller High Life’s Backyard Dive Bar Giveaway. The winner won’t even have to walk outside of their lot line to have access to their own dimly lit, wood-paneling filled space, equipped with a bar with Miller High Life tap handles, enough beer to “live the high life” for the rest of 2020, Miller High Life artwork, a popcorn machine and more.

“We want to keep the outdoor drinking occasions going and wanted one lucky winner to have the perfect space to do it,” Associate Marketing Manager of Miller High Life Lucy Bloxam said.

Consumers 21 years of age and older can enter by texting “DIVEBAR” to 90464 to receive a link, or they can enter by visiting the giveaway’s website.

Full contest rules can be found here. The giveaway closes on Sept. 22, and winners will be announced shortly after.
