Introducing the American Pin-Up Series


Screen Shot 2017-04-02 at 6.18.32 PM

The new American Pin-Up Series will run on all Old Milwaukee Lager, Old Milwaukee Light, and Old Milwaukee N.A. packaging and will be available at retailers, bars and restaurants nationwide. The first pin-up in the series, ‘Stars and Stripes,’ is modeled after iconic female wartime heroes harkening back to WWII. The next pin-up design in the series, which gives a nod to the hunting and outdoor traditions, will launch in September 2017 with a new design to follow every four months.


Each design is inspired by different female personalities that embody the ‘Old Mil’ brand and celebrate the American lifestyle. The series raises a glass in honor of the female doers and disruptors who have left a legacy that continues to inspire today.


“We listened to our consumers and we’re excited to be launching the Old Milwaukee American Pin-up Series. The new look embraces the heritage of the brand while paying respect to the strong women that made pin-up culture in America something to be proud of. said Heather Rodman, Brand Manager at Old Milwaukee. “Our fans can expect the same great-tasting, accessible Old Mil, Old Mil Light, and Old Mil N.A but with a fresh new look, available at retailers nationwide beginning in April 2017.”


While the packaging will be getting an update, the tried and true brew that has made Old Milwaukee famous will not change.  The awarding winning recipe uses traditional brewing processes and a complex variety of hops and 6-row blend malt, creating a full-bodied, carefully balanced beer. Old Milwaukee has a slightly malty flavor with low to medium hop bitterness and produces a clean finish. This is Beer Built Right.

ARGO Scout Contest Winner!


We’re excited to announce we have a winner of the ARGO Scout sweepstakes! Congrats to Brandon from Madison Wisconsin!

 IMG_1587-1       IMG_1581-1

Brandon is a married, self-employed digital illustrator and photographer who lives in Madison, Wisconsin. He has a lot of hobbies including cycling, playing volleyball, hiking, metal detecting as well as anything else he can do outdoors. He camped and hiked extensively as a child which gave him a great appreciation for nature and the outdoors and he’s even been to all 50 states and numerous national parks. He had this to say about winning:

“I am beyond excited to win the ARGO Scout! I’ll be able to use it when I’m out on my property, exploring property owned by relatives in northern Wisconsin or taking my brother-in-law out hunting. We have very hilly wooded acreage as well as some marshy areas where I think the Scout will be able to plow through without a problem.

Old Mil is me and my uncle’s favorite beer and I drink it with him up at his shop every time I go to visit him. I have a lot of great memories talking and hanging out with him. Great taste and inexpensive too!

I just want to thank Old Mil and ARGO for such an incredible prize and I can’t wait to take it out and give it a test run. I feel extremely lucky to have won something so awesome!”

Old Mil partners with the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership


Old Milwaukee has partnered with the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership to help promote issues that are important to our community—among them, working to keep sportsmen’s access to public lands intact.

America’s 640 million acres of national public lands – including our national forests and Bureau of Land Management lands – provide hunting and fishing opportunities to millions of Americans. They represent the uniquely American values of freedom and adventure that are the envy of the world.

This is particularly true in the West, where, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 72 percent of sportsmen depend on access to public lands for hunting. Without these vast expanses of prairie and sagebrush, foothills and towering peaks, the traditions of hunting and fishing as we have known them for more than a century would be lost.

Please visit to learn more about the cause and sign the petition to keep public lands in public hands—the way Theodore Roosevelt and other conservation heroes intended them to be.

Old Mil Partners with “Everyoutdoorsman” and TV personality, Benny Spies!


Outdoor televisions only EVERYOUTDOORSMAN, Benny Spies, has a new beer buddy this season and it’s the American classic, Old Milwaukee – the beer built right.   Old Milwaukee Beer, a longtime favorite of hardworking, hard-playing outdoor enthusiasts, is proud to partner with GUN IT with Benny Spies, Presented By Leupold, for the 2016 season, set to kick off July 6th on The Sportsman Channel.


“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with Benny,” said Heather Rodman, Brand Manager for Old Milwaukee. “He epitomizes the Old Mil lifestyle – hunting, fishing, having fun outdoors with friends, causing a bit of trouble, and enjoying an ice cold Old Mil afterwards to celebrate. We can’t wait to see what he gets into next and we’re happy to be along for the ride.”


Like the first cold sip of an Old Milwaukee beer, this relationship is just “built right.”  Benny’s unique blend of wit and humor mixes perfectly with a icy can pulled right straight from the cooler while sitting around the campfire with your hunting or fishing partners, after the day’s adventure.


“Like many of you, I look forward to a cold one after a long day chasing roosters or walleyes or just about anything out there,” said GUN IT host, Benny Spies. “It’s downright un-American not to crack one while sitting around a tailgate or campfire, with a few buddies, talking about the day or joking about the one that got away, especially when you’re roasting your pal that couldn’t hit or catch a darn thing!  That’s why I’m very proud and excited to be partnered with Old Milwaukee.  Old Milwaukee is America’s best tasting beer and I’m going to make sure everyone knows it!  Free beer for everyone around my campfire this season!”

And the winner is…


Old Milwaukee is excited to announce Tyler as the winner of the Old Milwaukee Custom Truck Sweepstakes!

When Tyler’s not working his 9 – 5, he can be found outside, typically hiking, biking or exploring. He likes to tinker and build things, most recently small motorcycles and mopeds.

We asked him why he’s excited about the truck and this is what he told us:

I’m excited to win the truck because I can’t wait to show it off and talk about it around town. My friends and I started drinking old mil back when we went to school at Ohio University, in Athens, Ohio. At the time, we were the only people in town drinking Old Mil and it was really only sold at 1 gas station near our houses. After about a year everybody around us had jumped on the Old Mil train and the gas station owner kept having to order larger and larger orders to make sure he always had some in stock.

I’m excited to be add another piece of Old Milwaukee to the collection of bar signs, taps and posters that we already have. It’s a great tasting, affordable beer that I can’t wait to represent. I plan on taking the truck to classic car drive-ins as well as possibly a few parades if I can sneak in haha.

Tyler has been a fan of Old Mil for a while. We asked him why he likes Old Mil and he said, “ I drink old mil because ‘it doesn’t get any better than this.’ The memories I’ve shared with friends over a case of Old Mil will be with me forever.”

We’ll cheers to that. Congrats Tyler!
