Miller Lite is selling ornaments you can drink beer out of, because why not


Is your Christmas list incomplete? Have you already purchased all the logical, sensible gifts but still have your beer-swilling, burping Uncle Steve to shop for? Well, Miller Lite has you covered. Introducing Beernaments, the plastic orb that can hold an 8 oz. can of beer to hang on your poor, unsuspecting Christmas Tree. For only $19.75, you receive six Miller Lite logoed orbs that you must dissemble and fashion around cans of beer like a set of impractical beer cozies. If this is a gift, I guess you replace the beered orbs in the box and drop them on Uncle Steve’s lap. Grab a towel for when he opens those suckers up. Why do you have to do the assembly, you ask? Because the beer is not included. You must supply the beer. So, I guess it’s the honor code that’s you’ve inserted a Miller Lite in the orb. I mean, what would Steve know if you switch his Miller with, say, an 8 oz. Bud Light Lime-A-Rita?

Christmastime just became Miller Time, thanks to Miller Lite.

Makers of the popular brew are getting into the holiday spirit this season by introducing Beernaments, drinkable ornaments sure to brighten up any Miller Lite-drinker’s Christmas tree.

Beernaments give any tree a pop with their winter white color, circular design, and Miller Lite logo. Packaged in sets of six, the palm-sized balls snap snugly around 8 oz. cans of one’s favorite fine pilsner.

Once enjoyed, Miller Lite’s Beernaments can be hung on Christmas trees by simply using the can’s tab (and an ornament hook).

For sale now at, the limited edition offering costs $19.75.

Here’s the only downside: beer cans are sold separately.

When CB and I were first talking about this, I thought the ornament was a can itself. So the idea was novel, but I worried about storage because aluminum dents so easily. The fact that this is just a plastic cover eliminates that worry, but places this in the WTH category. Is anyone other than a frat house buying this? Just from a practicality perspective, these are a nightmare. A six pack of 8 oz. beer cans will weigh the branches down. Your tree will look tired! Don’t make me feel sorry for your tree. And they hang from the tab, which means you have to crack the beer to hang it. So it has to be drunk right after hanging or someone getting a flat beer from Santa Tree. Once it’s drunk, you’d need to wash the can out thoroughly or your Christmas tree will be filled with Christmas ants. And since the person who’s washing them just drank a six pack of Beernaments, they probably didn’t let them dry thoroughly and now the tree smells like old beer mold. But sure, grab yourself some Beernaments. Oh wait, you can’t – they’re sold out.

Miller got Jimmy O. Yang to do the ads for these holiday treasures. He appeared with Nina Dobrev in Love Hard that CB discussed yesterday. I am very glad I did not see him promoting these Beer Balls before I saw Love Hard, it would have made it harder to root for him.

    Just imagining the meeting that resulted in this …. {cringes}

  2. FeedMeChips says:

    I don’t really celebrate Christmas anymore, but when I did, I drank a Genny light while putting up the tree and used the empty can as my tree topper. This is to say that I would buy these.

  3. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    *whispers* I would buy these because my husband drinks Miller Lite…
    *hangs head and quietly walks out*

      All of my husband’s friends do, so I would seriously consider for our christmas party. How fun! And it’s a useful piece of junk, so there’s that. But I guess they’re out. It’s kind of annoying how far in advance you have to know about stuff and plan ahead for christmas because everything is gone. I wanted some more blinking colored lights and went out monday morning of this week; it was like, yeah, fat chance, lady

      • LaUnicaAngelina says:

        Right?! Everything is scarce but I feel like the holidays really snuck up on us.

      • manda says:

        omg I feel like a privileged idiot. I wasn’t even thinking of supply chain stuff, I meant more how people buy it all up so quickly, like every year (probably because I am a procrastinator). But yes, I do feel like the holidays really came quickly this year, and honestly, I am here for it. I want to have something to celebrate and get a little dressed up for. I wore a skirt to thanksgiving, just because!

    I think they are cute for a beer drinker.

  5. manda says:

    I think it’s great that it doesn’t come with miller lite bc miller lite is yucko gross! I remember in the 90s, bars used to have the miller lite girls come and they’d give it away for free, and even then I could not abide it. I guess I just don’t like pilsners. I would buy these and put different cans in them


    I am shocked they are sold out! Sold without the beer is like ten times worse than batteries not included.

  7. Pinkosaurus says:

    I love that they come in a six pack. That’s what makes it special 😂. If they weren’t sold out, I would be buying these for a white elephant exchange.

    Buzz balls are about to file a lawsuit in 3, 2….

    • Ree says:

      I actually only tried Buzz Ballz about a month ago and they were really good. They’re cute and colorful too. I was also happy to see it was woman owned. Buzz Ballz did it better imo.

  9. Bookie says:

    More are being released today. I’m buying!!

  10. Jules says:

    Clever marketing for those who actually still drink Miller Lite.

  11. L4Frimaire says:

    Ok maybe I’m really kitschy and tacky but I actually like these and I don’t even like Miller. Free advertising for Miller even if you put a better beer in there. That would be a fun tree trimming party. Loved Jimmy O. in Crazy Rich Asians… his character was so over the top obnoxious.

  12. Eurydice says:

    From the way the announcement is written, it looks like you’re supposed to drink the beer first and then hang the empty ornaments on the tree. Otherwise, yeah, you’re going to have a pretty droopy tree with all that weight on it.

  13. Christine says:

    I don’t know that I would decorate with these, but I’d absolutely buy them for the novelty.
