I can't get Miller High Life here.

I went to my local beer store to get a keg of High Life and they can't get it, not even on special order. This pisses me off. It is one of Miller's top 3 and it isn't avilable?

Who do I bitch to other than my local distributor (who doesn't seem to care)?

Bitch at Miller directly. I am sure they want it to be sold, it's the champagne of beers!

Just wondering....

Why do you want a keg of MHL?

You need to have SOMETHING around the house to serve to people you don't like!

Exactly!

Actually, I like Miller High Life. I kind of want a keg around for those days I have football buddies over and don't want them drinking my good stuff. And, I like Miller High Life.

That's exactly the scenario I figured, judging by your avatar.

I'm of the opinion that people should drink what they like with no apologies. I don't like Miller (never have) but I'll defend your right to drink it!

I bet if you contact Miller they can get you in touch with a local distributor. It's one of the most popular draft beers in the nation, so it's GOT to be available somewhere. In a previous life (and job) I used to order High Life and Lite kegs by the truckload...in fact, my distributor would just leave the refrigerated truck at my workplace and hand me the keys!

I already talked to the local distributor, they were rude as ahell and I concluded that they weren't going to find a way to get High Life.

I e-mailed Miller today, if that doesn't get me anything, snail-mail is next.

This just bugs the begeeziz out of me.
