Now You Too Can Be Ordained as a Minister by Miller High Life

If you haven’t been there, you know someone who has. A pair of lovebirds ready to tie the knot, but not sure who to help them do it. For one reason or another, the happy couple may not have access to a minister who can do the honors, and they need to get a little creative with how they make their marriage binding before man and God. Well, good news. There’s a new sheriff in town ready to vest power in you, and they’re powered the champagne of beers.

Yes, Miller High Life has partnered with (who else?) the Universal Life Church to create their own army of wedding officiants to do the honors. They’re called the Officiants of the High Life and, yes, they’re legally empowered to officiate a wedding and pronounce you, according to their own custom vows, “Drinking Buddies for Life.”

You probably need no introduction to Miller High Life, since it’s one of the cheapest and most readily accessible beers out there. The Universal Life Church might need a little more explanation. It’s a kinda sorta religious organization formed in the 1950s that claims to be a “non-denominational religious organization that brings together people from all walks of life.” In practice, that means it’s a hub of “spiritual but not religious” types and is an easy loophole for anyone looking to get ordained, since the group will happily make anyone a minister for the price of a song.

Now, they’ve joined forces for, which can get you ordained lickity split. Just head to website, hand over your email address and you’ll get your free Officiants of High Life package in no time, which includes legal proof of ordination, business cards and a chance to win some formalwear from the Tie Bar. You’ll also get some tips on things like performing a wedding and filling out a marriage certificate — standard wedding stuff.

Not a bad gig for people in need of a quick wedding officiant. A little weirder if you’re questioning what this means about the role of ministers in our society. But if you’re looking to make an honest person out of your partner and there’s no ordained pastor in sight, maybe it’s Miller time.
