Want to support your favorite dive bar ... for a good long time?
Well, Miller High Life is hosting a competition to win a $20,000 High Life Gold Card. Depending on your intake, that could be a lifetime supply of beer at your favorite local.
You just have to submit your "dive bar love story" by emailing it to DiveBarLovers@promo.millerhighlife.com by Feb. 14 for a chance to win.
The winning couple will be announced on Feb. 15 and will ALSO get what the Champagne of Beers is calling the best Valentine's Day date ever. Miller will rent out the couple's favorite local dive bar just for them for the special date.
They couple will get, "endless peanuts, popcorn and bar food (in heart shapes, of course), premium Wisconsin bratwurst and other 'charcuterie,' dim candlelight and of course, The Champagne of Beers."
And, still, on top of all that, there's also that $20,000 bar tab credit.
Be brief and powerful because you have just 150 words or fewer to tell your dive bar love story.
You have to be 21 or older to enter. Also, you've gotta have a valid driver's license and be ready to celebrate your date night in what will remain of February.
Full contest rules are here and good luck!
