2013 Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary Celebration

Born across the street from each other in Milwaukee, Miller High Life and Harley-Davidson have been making timeless American products for 110 years.

Now they’re making something together. Today, Bill Davidson, vice-president of the Harley-Davidson Museum and great-grandson of Harley-Davidson co-founder William A. Davidson officially kicked-off a multi-year partnership with Miller High Life by helping brewmasters make a batch of the Champagne of Beers.

William Davidson says: “It’s incredible to think that Harley-Davidson and Miller High Life were born on the same stretch of road 110 years ago. This partnership and our 110th Anniversary events in Milwaukee celebrate our common bonds, our shared history and our bright futures.”

The beer brewed with Davidson will not be specially marked and will instead be distributed like any other batch of High Life brewed in the Miller Brewery. So this summer whenever someone celebrates after a great ride by enjoying the Champagne of Beers, they might be sipping this special batch.

Harley-Davidson and Miller High Life will also keep some of this batch aside to celebrate special occasions with consumers throughout the summer.

“It’s an honor to brew a beer that has helped people celebrate the high points in daily life for 110 years,” said Dr. David Ryder, Miller High Life head brewmaster. “But to share this moment with Harley-Davidson and the Davidson family is truly special.”

Beyond the unique batch of brew, commemorative Harley-Davidson designs will be featured on Miller High Life cans and packaging. The partnership will bring customized Harley-Davidson motorcycles with Miller High Life graphics to participating retail stores.

The brands will also rev up excitement by offering fans the chance to win exclusive prizes throughout the summer – including Harley-Davidson commemorative apparel and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Fans can follow Miller High Life’s Facebook page to get information on promotions and events in their area.

Now through the Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary celebration in Milwaukee over Labor Day weekend, Harley-Davidson invites fans to showcase their favorite motorcycle rides this summer. Riders can simply go to and post their epic journeys.  For more Harley-Davidson 110th Milwaukee event information and ticketing details, visit

As part of the alliance, Miller High Life and Harley-Davidson will also encourage riders to take the high road this summer by sharing safe riding tips at motorcycle events across the country.
