Last year, Miller High Life gave away a super cool backyard dive bar and this patio season, the Milwaukee brewer is giving away a Girl in the Moon-adorned patio set to help create your own backyard biergarten.
The set – valued at $15,000 – includes a dive-inspired red wicker couch, laser engraved table with barstool seats, a munchies machine, a custom pergola and decor, including lights, a dart board, neon sign, pillows and glassware.
Miller got 100,000 entries for last year’s dive bar and in 24 hours has already gotten 10,000 entries for this set, with the most entries coming from Wisconsin, naturally.
To enter the Miller High Life Backyard Dive Bar giveaway consumers 21 and up should text “PATIODIVE” to 90464. They’ll get a link to enter for their chance to win. They can also visit HighLifePatioDiveBar.com.
