Mickey's is a malt liquor made by the Miller Brewing Company.[1] It has an alcohol content of 5.6% by volume.

Mickey's was originally brewed by Sterling Brewery in Evansville, Indiana from 1962 through 1972.[2] Mickey's is widely known for its unique beehive-shaped, wide-mouthed 12 ounce bottle, often called a "grenade" due to its circular waffle design.[3] The original packaging included Irish iconography with shamrocks, castle towers and an arm holding a mace.[4] Current packaging is more neutral, but still green, with an illustrated hornet icon on the cap. The wide mouthed bottles are known for having rebus puzzles under the cap.[5] Recently, Mickey's has served as a sponsor of the Ultimate Fighting Championship,[6] using the tagline, "Get Stung" and has featured several UFC fighters on 24 ounce cans. Mickey's is also available in 16, 22, 24, 32, and 40 ounce sizes.
