Interesting Facts:

Michelob Original Lager was created more than a century ago to be the “draught beer for connoisseurs.” For 66 years, it was distributed only as a draught product, and only to the finest retail outlets. In 1961, it was introduced in a bottle that became a legend within its own right, with its unusual hourglass shape and gold foil shrouded neck. Michelob became available in cans in 1967.

Continuing the Michelob family’s history of supporting professional golf, Michelob Original Lager is the official beer sponsor of the PGA TOUR, the Champions Tour and PGA TOUR star Sergio Garcia.
