It was founded in 1855 by Frederic Miller when he purchased the small Plank-Road Brewery. The brewery's location in the Menomonee Valley provided easy access to raw materials produced on nearby farms. It also has a brewery in Butler County, Ohio's St. Clair Township.

It was acquired by South African Breweries from Philip Morris on May 30, 2002, to form SABMiller for $3.6 billion worth of stock and $2 billion in debt, with Philip Morris retaining a 36% share, with voting rights of 24.99%.

Miller Brewing owns breweries in Albany, Georgia; Eden, North Carolina; Fort Worth, Texas; Irwindale, California; Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Trenton, Ohio.

Miller Genuine Draft

Miller Genuine Draft was introduced in 1986 as the original cold filtered packaged draft beer, it is not heat pasteurized. Miller uses an exclusive cold-filtered process that prevents some of the beer's flavor from being heated away. MGD recently received the gold medal in the American-style Premium Lager category at the 1999 World Beer Cup. It also received the silver medal at the 2003 American Beer Festival.

Miller High Life

Miller High Life is an inexpensive beer that can be considered the forerunner of the modern American lager beers. High Life is grouped under the pilsner category of beers, although it has slightly less alcohol than European pilsners. The prevailing slogan for Miller High Life is "The Champagne of Beers", which its easy-drinking, light and fizzy composition seem to suggest. This beer was put on the market in 1903. High Life bottles are quite distinctive, as they have a bright gold label and are made of a clear glass that has an oddly tapered neck. High Life beat out 17 other contestants to take home the gold medal in "American-style Lagers" at the 2002 World Beer Cup.

Milwaukee's Best

Milwaukee's Best Ice

At 5.9% alcohol by volume, it is a "cheap-beer" alternative to malt liquors and other more expensive ice beers. It's relatively smooth and chills to a very cold temperature without freezing. Beast Ice as it is affectionately known as by its proponents has become a mainstay, particulary in the American Northwest, of binge drinking college students. Known to come as cheap as $10 for a 30 pack, this ice beer (Classic Taste at its Best) is suitable for any form of drinking game or merely casual sipping. Not to be enjoyed in singles, Best Ice is most often consumed in large quantities from either a keg or can. Also seen in 40s, Best Ice is generally not served in restaurants.
