You Can Actually Drink Beer From Miller Lite's New Christmas Ornaments
We're adults; we can talk about this: Christmas tree ornaments are kind of ridiculous. We chop down a tree, bring it into our living room, and hang a bunch of junk on it. What's the point of all that really? Well, this year, Miller Lite is lending our trees a bit of practicality with "Beernaments" — ornaments you can drink beer out of.
Though far from the first alcoholic ornaments (in 2019, a Scottish distillery even packaged Brussel sprouts gin in Christmas ornaments) this is the first time Miller has created festive packaging for their eponymous light beer that's intended to be hung on a Christmas tree. Six-packs of these balls that are designed to "fit snugly" around 8-ounce cans of Miller Lite go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday) at 3 p.m. ET exclusively at Beernaments.com for $19.75.
"Once enjoyed, Beernaments can be hung on Christmas trees for all to behold by simply using the tab and a hook," the brand explains. The stark white balls appear to also fit snuggly in a beer drinker's hand and feature the classic Miller Lite logo — albeit with the phrase "a fine pilsner ornament" instead of "a fine pilsner beer" surrounded by green holly instead of the usual golden barley.
"We know that people are looking forward to more intimate holiday celebrations this year, which means more Miller Time with close friends and loved ones," began Sofia Colucci, global VP of Miller Family of brands. "Our Beernaments are not only hilarious, but a great way to keep the holidays bright for beer lovers everywhere, from drinks to decor."
Unfortunately, the only thing these Beernaments are missing is actual beer: You're left having to hunt down 8-ounce size cans of Miller Lite yourself. (In theory, 8-ounce cans of any beer would work, though it's not like 8-ounce cans are a common size for beer.) But hey, consider it one more thing you can add to your Christmas wish list.
