“April is Alcohol Awareness Month, which aims to educate people on alcohol responsibility.
For MillerCoors, alcohol responsibility is something that we practice 365 days of the year.
We partner with transit companies, taxis, and Uber throughout the year to offer free and discounted rides to adults during key times of the year like New Year’s Eve.
We are committed to providing resources that help consumers enjoy our great beers responsibly.” – Diane Wagner, Alcohol Responsibility Manager
