The winner will get a virtual meet-and-greet with Jose and will get to see a different side of the global superstar, along with a year’s supply of the special edition Miller Lite, so they can enjoy “Jose Time” all year long.

“At the end of the day, I’m José, a guy who loves spending time with his close friends, and ‘Es José Time’ shows just that,” said J Balvin.  “I’m proud to be working with a legendary beer like Miller Lite, and I appreciate that they embrace me for who I am.”

Even though Latinos comprise some 20% of the US population, the Latino market has long been under-served by in mainstream beer marketing. And with that figure poised to double by 2060 Miller Lite is getting more serious in its outreach.  Latino beer drinkers spend more of their alcohol beverage dollars on beer than other ethnic groups, at 43.4%, according to Nielsen.

“J Balvin is one of the most iconic Latinos in the world. To have him showcase Miller Lite in his daily life is really powerful. It shows Miller Lite is part of culture,” Sarah Irizarry, marketing manager for Miller Lite told Beer & Beyond, noting that the brand is sponsoring J Balvin’s upcoming North American tour, kicking off in April.

“And while J Balvin is an obvious choice to better reach Latino drinkers, he has great crossover appeal,” Irizarry added.“The reality is, ‘Es Jose Time’ has an opportunity to meet all consumers. “You can’t help but stop and look at these cans. They’re amazing.”
