Place of Origin

Maker Miller Brewing Co.

Maker Details Miller Brewing Company was founded in 1855 by Frederick Miller . The brewery's location in the Miller Valley in Milwaukee provided easy access to raw materials produced on nearby farms. The company remained in the family until 1966. In 1966, the conglomerate W. R. Grace and Company bought Miller from Mrs. Lorraine John Mulberger (Frederick Miller's granddaughter) and her family. In 1969, Philip Morris (now Altria) bought Miller from W.R. Grace for $130 million, outbidding PepsiCo. In 2002, South African Breweries bought Miller from Philip Morris. In 2006, Miller Brewing purchased Sparks and Steel Reserve brands from McKenzie River Corporation. In 2007, SABMiller and Molson Coors combined their U.S. operations in a joint venture called MillerCoors.
