Default MillerCoors to make high ABV beer to compete with liquor drinking youth

Just read through this article. It is called Miller Fortune and comes in at a whopping 6.9%. It is also recommended to pour into a whiskey glass instead of a pint glass.

6.9%. While high for Miller/Coors....Is it really that high?

I actually need it today at Meijers and was really surprised, they call it a 6.9% Golden Lager. Im slightly curious.

I've seen Fortune at the local gas stations. I'm somewhat morbidly curious, but really don't want to buy a sixer, especially since they're twist-offs...I can't re-use those!
