Date:5/22/2008

Brewer Announces Fundraiser As Part Of Its Summer-Long Harley-Davidson

105th Anniversary Celebration Promotion

MILWAUKEE, May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Miller Brewing Company will donate 10 cents to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) for every Miller Lite bottle cap collected now through Sept. 1, 2008, as part of the brand's "Better. Bolder. Summer" promotion. Miller Lite, the "ultimate light beer," is the official beer sponsor of this summer's Harley-Davidson 105th anniversary celebration.

Legal-drinking-age consumers can donate their Miller Lite bottle caps in several ways, including at collection points located in participating retailers across the country; just look for the "Miller Lite Bottle Caps for MDA" boxes beginning in early June. Ultimately, these bottle caps will be shipped to Milwaukee for the August 28-31 celebration of Harley-Davidson's 105th anniversary. Miller will make a donation up to $100,000 to MDA based on the number of Miller Lite caps collected.

"We are proud and honored to be teaming up with our favorite neighbor once again as we celebrate Harley-Davidson's 105th anniversary with them," said Antonio Maldonado, Miller Lite's vice president of marketing. "Enjoying the only light beer brewed to deliver the perfect combination of taste and refreshment is usually reason enough to choose Miller Lite. This summer, beer drinkers can feel even better about drinking 'the ultimate light beer,' knowing that they're helping raise money for a great cause in MDA."

-- Consumers also can mail bottle caps to Miller Brewing Company,

Attention "Miller Lite Bottle Caps for MDA," 3939 W. Highland Blvd.,

P.O. Box 482, Milwaukee, WI 53201-0482.

-- Additionally, any Harley-Davidson riders coming to Milwaukee for the

105th anniversary celebration are encouraged to bring their Miller Lite

bottle caps with them and deposit the caps into the giant Miller Lite

bottle.

Miller Lite bottle caps collected around the country will be sent to Milwaukee to be counted and deposited into the giant Miller Lite bottle. In addition to raising money via the "Miller Lite Bottle Caps for MDA" effort, the brewer is helping raise money for MDA in other ways this summer:

-- For every 18-pack of Miller Lite bottles or cans sold at 7-Eleven

stores across the country, Miller will donate 25 cents, up to an

additional $100,000. Consumers can learn more about the ways that

7-Eleven will be partnering with Miller Lite and MDA at displays in

their local stores.

-- At participating retailers across the country -- bars, restaurants,

grocery stores, liquor stores and so on -- consumers can join the fight

against muscular dystrophy by purchasing a motorcycle mobile for $1,

with all proceeds going directly to MDA.

-- Consumers also can contribute to MDA via BetterBolderSummer.com.
