Eden, NC - Sports venues throughout the United States turn to one brewery for their Miller Lite in Aluminum Pints, and it is located in Eden, North Carolina.
That's right the Rockingham County MillerCoors plant is the only place that brews and bottles your ballpark re-sealable treat.
For more than 33 years this operation that employs hundreds sends product to stores in 14 primary states from Maine to Florida. In addition to the flagship brands Miller Lite and Coors Light they are also a primary bottler of Blue Moon.
Eden was chosen in 1978 due to the fact it has adequate water resources most notably the Smith and Dan river, but it wasn't the only reason. "The talent availability in this area 33 years ago made it very very attractive for Miller", says Brewery Vice President Jim Smith.
MillerCoors also keeps other businesses in business as well. The Ball Corporation out of Reidsville supplies them with all of the 12 and 16 ounces aluminum cans.
And they are generous to the community they call home. Access points along the Smith river were created by team members of MillerCoors, the company also donated the landscaping materials as well.
