It might have made just a tad more sense to do this NEXT year in 20-21  - BUT - free beer is free beer, so Natural Light is giving free beer to anyone turning 21 this year.

The competition among beer brands is fierce so the sooner one brand gets you board, as a consumer, the greater the chance that brand locks you in as a lifetime customer.

Natural Light wants to help anyone turning 21 this year celebrate and while they could have sprung for a cake, instead, the brand is giving away a free case of beer to those hitting the milestone birthday in 2020.

So what do we know about Natural Light?  Introduced in 1977, Natural Light was Anheuser-Busch’s first reduced-calorie light beer, instantly becoming a hit.  In 2008, Natural Light shocked the world, taking bronze at the World Beer Cup for “American-style light lager”.  With that honor in pocket, Natural Light went into orbit in 2011, becoming the first beer in space. 

A 2018 list of top selling American beers puts Natural Light at # 8 with 3% market share.

Natural Light — or Natty Light for many college students in the U.S. — is one of the lightest beers on the market. One Natural Light contains just 95 calories and 3.2 grams of carbs.

SO if "Natty Light" sounds natty right, here's how you or a soon to be 21 year old in you life can cash in.

To claim the offer, the birthday boy or girl needs to purchase a case of Natty and then submit their receipt or UPC Code for their purchase to the website MyBeerRebate.com.  Customers will also be required to submit proof that they turned 21 this year.
