Even though the “Storm Area 51” event has been canceled, Bud Light is still hoping to supply beer for aliens, This time, the company has special plans in store for Earthlings as well.
Bud Light had previously pledged to give a free beer to any aliens that manage to escape Area 51 during the now-canceled “Storm Area 51” event, that was originally organized on Facebook in an effort to give attendees a chance to “see them aliens.”
The original “free beer for escaped aliens” announcement came in July when the viral “Storm Area 51” raid was months away. Since then, the event, which started out as an obvious joke, had morphed into an actual alien-themed festival dubbed Alienstock.
Other Events are Planned
Alienstock was set to take place between September 20th-22nd. That event too was canceled when the event’s creator pulled out over safety concerns, saying he didn’t want to be involved in “Fyre Fest 2.0.” With so much interest, however, an “Area 51 Celebration” was organized in Las Vegas, instead.
Now, Bud Light wants everyone, including extraterrestrials to know that the company will still be present at the Vegas event. According to a press release, Bud Light is bringing an “alien-friendly fridge,” which will be staged at the Luxor Hotel and Casino, and “reserved exclusively for aliens.” What’s more, Bud Light says the fridge can only be opened by an “alien finger scan”.
The company will also be producing the limited-edition alien-themed Bud Light can, which was previously tested in July. The company’s latest press release also contains a statement from an anonymous “Bud Light operative” on its hopes for the Las Vegas event.
“The way we see it, we’d much rather people crack open a crisp Bud Light with alien visitors rather than storm Area 51,” the “operative” said. “Nothing says we come in peace like sharing a beer with friends from another place or another galaxy. We promised to have beer waiting for any alien that wants it and we plan to deliver on that promise. Our hope is that humans stock up too because you never know when you might need some Bud Lights to welcome intergalactic neighbors.’”
Bud Light fans who will not travel to Las Vegas can still find the special-edition cans in three states. Those states are Nevada, Arizona and California, Bud Light confirmed. East Coasters will just have to get abducted, and possibly probed, by party-animal space aliens if they hope to enjoy those alien beers.
So if you like aliens, come check out the “spaced out” fun we have at The Dive Bar. If Bud Light is not your thing, wine and cocktails are also being served, and remember that The Dive Bar has great pub grub, karaoke all week, live bands all month long, lot’s of cool and happy people, great vibes, stiff cocktails, and the best staff this side of the Mississippi.
