1979 Miller Beer commercial.


Angel Dark says:

The only problem I’ve got with Miller beer is that its too goddam
carbonated and that makes me throw up making it useless to get drunk 

brainsareus says:

worst beer… carbonated piss water..

backflashproduction says:

Sierra Nevada is ok, try Speakeasy Ales & Lagers

kjclark1963 says:

The funny thing is, this was filmed on a tourist railroad that operates
steam locomotives. I believe they operate these “snow specials” only a
couple of times each winter. Therefore, Miller’s implication that this is
“typical railroad work” and they head for a Miller when they’re done is
pretty weak. It’s about the same as implying a couple of airline pilots
heading to “Miller time” when they’re done flying a plane, except their
plane would have to be one built by the Wright Brothers.

PJSkins26 says:

Why were Beer commercials so awesome between 1975-85?

RyoGamestation says:

Budweiser with a lot bubbles.

sinbad799 says:

I don’t know if anyone notices but the black guy who operated the train was
Hal Williams, who played Officer Smith (Smitty) on Sanford and Son. Just
keep your eye open it takes a split second in the engine and when he sits
down with his coworker towards the end.

sincityskywalker says:

blue moon belgian wheat ale is better..

Adrian Salsgiver says:

Forget about enjoying a smoke with your Miller beer now, it is against the
rules of the New World Order Conspiracy.

Tacom4ster says:

I spit Miller beer, I drink Samuel Adams

craig Martin says:

my brother and I have miller time every fri after work. MILLER TIME!!!!!!


How weird. I was thinking the same thing. I’ve been on that ride and it’s
awesome! Never done it in winter, but I’d love to. It’s Miller time!

goobert3 says:

it’s miller time

Jacarter99 says:

Samual Adams is ok, try Sierra Nevada

World Class Beer says:

Miller is not a wheat beer. There’s now wheat involved in brewing it. Corn,
yes. Wheat, no.

TheCheezhead15 says:

Don’t you mean Sludge Weiser?

TimelordR says:

It’s Miller Time somewhere in the world!!

Gossage54 says:

I’ll be damned if that doesn’t sound like Orson Wells narrating this. He
was doing the cheap wine ads at this time so at least on this he didn’t
have to show his face. I don’t know for sure if it’s him but it sounds
exactly like him.

Rickat1964 says:

What a grouch…

Omnibot says:

Yes, hangover in a bottle….this bud’s for me…and I live in the shadow
of the main brewery!

David Parker says:

Cause the foam looks cool….of course!

SteamUP says:

That was filmed in Chama, NM on the Cumbres & Toltec

SagitarianVeggie says:

I wonder if those are actual railway and bar workers or if they are just
actors. Either way “It’s Miller Time!”

Rickat1964 says:

@KaiserHudson67, thank you for setting me straight.

ThePretzelHead says:

In railroad work back in the 70′s Miller Time and time were the same.

davecooks says:

We have a place outside Chama, NM. I remember what a big deal this
commercial was back then. The Cumbres & Toltec used to use those old
snowblowers (they had two) to clear a short section of track to take people
out on short winter rides, they wouldn’t clear the whole line to Antonito.
The bar in the commercial is Foster’s which is still there. We knew the
bartender in the commercial, she was the actual bartender at Foster’s. I
remember she’d get $200 or so each time this played.

JxT1957 says:

the champagne of bottled beer

Johnnyrod19666 says:

@MervynCruddy Now your talking!

mikederda says:

Budwiser is crap! Oh,yeah!

Harry44Callahan2 says:

…when it’s time to relax…one beer stands clear, beer after
beer…Mil-ler tastes to great to hurry through…if you’ve got the time –
we’ve got the beer…Miller!

TheRailRoadkid says:

I am a railfan so I respect the D&RGW snow plow, way to young to drink

World Class Beer says:

Actually, a great deal of Anheuser Busch stock is foreign owned, not

Rickat1964 says:

How did they come up with a job plowing railroad tracks anyway?

bigchevy80 says:

I would drink Bud, if it don’t taste like shit…

jamiirali1 says:

excellent observation sir. your keen eye for detail is the mark of a true
beer connoissuer.thank you for enlightening some of our younger less
experienced beer drinkers on this most serious of matters.

mikederda says:


frank d says:

I sure remember these commercials when you have guys working up a sweat and
relax with a Miller Beer.

hetzii says:

Another American company gone… SAB South African Brewing owns it
now!!!!!! Drink Budweiser–still American owned

easyflow says:

is the problem. try pilsener urquell or chezch budweiser. this is beer!

VinylShellacLover says:

Thank you, Jimmy Carter, for finally legalizing home brewing…

jpowell180 says:

Bwahahah! “The BEST TASTING beer you can find”??? …Must not be searching
for very long…I wonder how these guys would react to Heineken or Sam

merc marc says:

Would you stand in front of a locomotive with 20 foot spinning blades?

heidi1946 says:

I’m looking for a Miller commercial – probably from the 60′s or early 70′s
- “when it’s time to relax Miller stands clear (beer after beer)…..” All
male vocal, nice and slow, beautiful to listen to. Any idea where I can
find it?


(SkipW) You are correct, sir. Been there, done that. What a beautiful ride.

default99telecom says:
