Aliens drink for free, but humans can buy alien-themed Bud Light

Updated September 17, 2019 - 5:59 pm

The level of intelligence from extraterrestrial life could be discovered this weekend at Storm Area 51 events, and Bud Light is being offered in alien-themed cans.

Human life forms of the 21-and-older persuasion also can buy the neon-green containers of beer.

The special-edition aluminum cans, which feature a green alien and black background as well as a new crest welcoming all extraterrestrials, are available in Nevada, California and Arizona, according to a news release.

The company also pledged free beer to any aliens who leave Area 51 to party in the desert.

In addition, Bud Light produced an alien-friendly fridge that’s stocked with plenty of Bud Light alien cans. The fridge is locked and includes an alien finger scan in order to open, to ensure the beer supply is available only to our extraterrestrial friends. Bud Light is staging the fridge in a coveted Las Vegas club’s VIP section at the Luxor Hotel and Casino.

One more stunning development: There is merchandise to celebrate the Bud Light-alien themed beverages available at www.abgiftshop.com.

The Storm Area 51 phenomenon started as a Facebook “event” and transformed into several parties — Alienstock in Rachel, Area 51 Basecamp at the Alien Research Center in Hiko and the Bud Light Area 51 Celebration at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.
