If you love the United States of America, chances are you are in a very celebratory mood right now. Not only is it the week Fourth of July, where barbecues and fireworks rule the day, but the U.S. Women’s National Team is also headed to the Women’s World Cup final after a close win against England.
Well, it just got sweeter for USA fans who love themselves a cold beer.
What started out as a rival bet suddenly became an amazing reality for all of America. Miller Lite promised 100,000 free beers if the USWNT won on Tuesday, and the 2-1 semifinal victory over the Lionesses in France means we all can party for free, from California to New York.
That’s right, free Miller Lite is on the way, courtesy of MillerCoors.
The details of how to get free beer are still in the works, but it’s coming just at the right time.
But how did this all happen?
Before the FIFA World Cup semifinal, Budweiser, an official partner of the England team, pledged to give away 100,000 free beers if England defeated the US. The beers were going to be available across England, via LadBible, with a printable token. So that’s when MillerCoors stepped in and matched the giveaway stakes on social media.
Despite Megan Rapinoe not playing in the the match, the United States came out victorious thanks to goals by Christen Press and Alex Morgan, and a massive penalty kick save by goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher.
The USWNT will face the winner of the Netherlands and Sweden in the World Cup on Sunday, July 7 at Par Olympique Lynonnais in Décines-Charpieu, France.
The good ol’ USA came through in the clutch again and we will all toast our free Miller Lite beer as they go for the Women’s World Cup title.
