Not only do beer companies make a delicious beverage that I enjoy year round but they are also willing to help out the average joe. For those of you who haven’t heard about Derek Jeter getting his 3000th hit, well, he did, and in style, a home run! The lucky fan who caught the ball, which had an estimated value of $250,000, gave the ball back to Jeter. because of his generosity the Yankees hooked him up with a ton of swag and tickets to the rest of the home games. However, the young gentleman who caught the ball, who has thousands of dollars in student loans, is most likely going to be hit with $13,000 worth of taxes.
Here enters one of the reasons I love beer companies. Miller High Life, who is trying to become the official beer of sports fans, has offered to not only pay for the taxes but to also throw a party for the lucky fan and his friends of legal drinking age. The statement by Miller High Life brand manager Brendan Noonan goes as follows;
“Miller High Life believes you should be rewarded for doing the right thing, not penalized. We want to recognize Christian Lopez, and in turn everyone like him, for doing the common sense thing and help him continue to live the High Life.”
Way to be amazing Miller High Life! Tasty-Takes would like to salute you for your generosity!!
