UPDATE: Due to the horrific shooting on the Molson Coors campus in Milwaukee on Wednesday, Miller has cancelled its Leap Day giveaway plans. Molson Coors posted the following statement about the tragic events on Twitter:

ORIGINAL POST: We get a bonus day this year, and best of all, this Leap Day – the first since 2016 – lands on the best day of the week: Saturday. So what better way to celebrate a free 24 hours than with 24 free beers?

Indeed, on Saturday, Feb. 29, Miller will buy you a 24-pack of Miller Lite to help you and your friends (two-dozen beers is a lot a beer, after all) make the most out of your free day.

Getting your bonus brews is as easy as enjoying them, too. On Saturday, Miller Lite will post a QR code to its Instagram and Twitter; all you need to do is scan it and submit your receipt from a Leap Day purchase of a 24-pack. Miller will then refund your money via PayPal. And boom: You've got yourself 24 free brews. 

So stay tuned to Miller Lite's Instagram and Twitter accounts on Saturday – and then put the phone away and enjoy 24 hours of free day.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
