      CELEBRATING THE 160TH ANNIVERSARY OF MILLER BREWING COMPANY

  Mr. RIBBLE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize MillerCoors, which 
is celebrating the 160th anniversary of Miller Brewing Company 
throughout the month of September at its Milwaukee Brewery in 
Wisconsin.
  Miller Brewing has been an important part of the Milwaukee community 
for 160 years. In honor of its 160th anniversary, the brewery is 
inviting members of the community to celebrate Miller memories and has 
been hosting special events throughout the month.
  After settling in Milwaukee with a special brewer's yeast and an 
ambition to brew ``confoundedly good beers,'' Frederick J. Miller 
founded the Miller Brewing Company in 1855. Miller Brewing continues 
that legacy today through MillerCoors, a family of breweries that 
includes many of the world's most talented brewmasters who brew beers 
with high-quality and often local ingredients while holding themselves 
to the industry's highest standards.
  Today, MillerCoors and Miller Brewing are vital to Wisconsin's 
economy and to the U.S. economy as a whole, supporting more than 8,000 
jobs nationwide. Frederick Miller knew firsthand the value of civic 
leadership and sustainable business practices, and these traditions 
continue today. Miller Brewing and MillerCoors remain deeply rooted in 
the communities in which they brew and sell beer by supporting local 
charities, remaining committed to responsible consumption, and working 
to reduce water and energy usage and waste in the brewing process.
  I am proud of MillerCoors for their contributions to the economy in 
Wisconsin and throughout the U.S. Their 160th anniversary is worthy of 
our special recognition.
