Rize Beer

I had never heard of this Rize beer - I had to Google it as soon as I saw this picture. It sounds like it's a Sparks type drink, made by Miller. Remember a few years ago when Sparks was cool?

Probably because it's not called "Rize Beer"... and the only place you'll ever see it called "Rize Beer" is on this site!

Wow, that Miller beer is so urban now man. Could this make it any less like water? Maybe it has a little bit of the gasoline tang we've all been missing so much in weak American beer.

Actually it IS in fact called "Rize Beer." I grew up in maine where Rize is brewed (go Sea Otters!), and I can tell you for a fact it is one hundred percent called Rize Beer.

Miller owns Sparks...

The photography looks purposefully arty...the woman in the white dress at the back has a blurry head that makes her look like a female impersonator...What's the deal with the lighting and focus of this shot?

I sure didn't expect to find this when looking through the traffic links for my photos, haha! this was the last party at a friend's house, vice sponsored it and sent us 5 cases of this shit. it's gross as fuck, but hey... free booze is free booze. as for the question of lighting and focus of this shot: I was drunk, it was sunset and my camera blows. ha.
