Default Triple Hopped? Was I that drunk?

I admit I had way too much to drink this weekend, but I could swear I saw a commercial (Miller?) that said it was "triple hopped." Was I hallucinating?

Yeah, Miller Lite's been advertising that since last summer atleast. As for your question, I have no idea if it's really triple hopped. If it is, they don't put much in at a time.

Yeah, I have 3 small kids, so usually the TV is set to SpongeBob or something and they don't advertise beer . It's all coming back to me... Yes I saw the Vortex bottle ad also. WTF?

We've got triple hop brewing from Miller, and the disappearing mountain can as a temperature gauge from Coors. Anyone remember Miller Beer and the "we only use the heart of the hops" campaign? I'm waiting for Budweiser's next marketing ploy.

I'm thinking they could come up with something like "Whole Malt Brewing - we at Budweiser use the entire corn of barley, for the most crisp, clean malt flavor possible!"

I'm not sure what's lower...The disappearing mountain by Coors or the Vortex bottle.
