(The new Miller Lite bottle design shown on right)

The beer company recently released a photo of a more modern-looking bottle that will hit bars and restaurants this summer.

The new bottle is still brown with a blue label, but the shape is entirely different. Perhaps most notable is that the top of the bottle is broader than the bottom. The bottle's neck is also shorter.

In a press release from MillerCoors, the company says the bottle was "inspired by form and design" and that its "contoured grip" is "intended for easy handling from the bar to the pool table."

Ryan Reis, senior director of Miller Lite, is quoted in the press release as saying, "We’re proud of the new design and we’re excited to see how everyone reacts to our new look. This time when you grab a Miller Lite, you’ll know it.”

This marks the first time in 40 years that the Miller Lite bottle has gone through a major update, according to Gizmodo. Other beverage companies (both alcoholic and non-) have been on a tear with new packaging this year, as well.

Heineken launched a new bottle design with a longer neck earlier this year. Budweiser recently came up with bow tie-shaped cans. And Pepsi rolled out a new design for its 20-ounce bottle, the first time the company has changed the bottle in 17 years.

    • Betsy DeVos statement on black colleges sparks uproar

      Angry social media users flew into an uproar Monday evening after Education Secretary Betsy DeVos issued a statement that some said ignored the context under which historically black universities were created. The statement called historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) “real pioneers when it comes to school choice,” and came shortly after President Donald Trump held a meeting with several HBCU leaders on Monday. Some social media users said DeVos ignored the history of how black Americans were denied access to higher education.

    • She asked her jailed boyfriend for some heroin advice. Then things turned deadly

      A Florida woman needed advice on cutting the strength of her heroin supply. So she turned to her incarcerated boyfriend. “You’ll figure it out,” Robert Rigby, in jail on drug charges, told Melissa Winings in a phone call. “If you get hit in the head enough times you learn to wear a helmet.” A day later, Winings was arrested, charged with manslaughter. Police say she gave carfentanil to a 34-year-old Sarasota man who then died. Rigby, 42, gave Winings a set of numbers to reduce the potency of her drugs. “Will you do that for me now on, not guesstimate and use those numbers?” Rigby asked. “Yes, baby,” the 25-year-old Nokomis woman said. But in the early hours of Aug. 29, 2016, Sarasota County Sheriff’s

    • Woman ponders disclosing long-ago choice

      Dear Amy: For the first time in many years, I have been thinking about an episode from my earlier life. I got pregnant one month before my 16th birthday. It was literally the first time I'd had sex; we used a condom, and it broke. That's all it took. As you can imagine, I was devastated. I know it sounds dramatic, but I felt betrayed by life, and I decided to terminate my pregnancy. Well, 19 years later, I'm actually still friends with my ex, who lives in another state. He is married and has gorgeous children, and I couldn't feel happier for him! My current boyfriend (of eight years) is ... "OK." We have our issues due to his online habits, where he gets involved with other women. But, despite

    • ‘Cash me outside’ girl is a bi-coastal menace to America

      The teen notorious for her “cash me outside” remark on the “Dr. Phil” show has found herself in the middle of trouble again. Police are investigating a brawl involving Danielle Bregoli, 13, and three others early on Sunday morning outside of a bar in Lake Worth, Florida. Bregoli, who made headlines earlier this month for a Spirit Airlines altercation, was caught on camera exchanging words with another female bar patron in a video shared to YouTube. According to the post, the woman had suggested that Bregoli was out past her curfew. In response, one of Bregoli’s friends hurled ice cream at the woman and then made a break for it.

    • George W. Bush Breaks His Silence on the Direction of the Country Under President Trump: ‘I Don’t Like the Racism and Name-Calling’

      For eight years since leaving the White House, George W. Bush has refused to criticize publicly those who succeeded him, saying he didn’t want to make an already tough job any harder for President Obama and, now, President Trump. “I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated,” Bush, 70, tells PEOPLE in an interview for the new issue of the magazine on newsstands Friday. The former president, joined by his wife  Laura, spoke with PEOPLE in the third-floor painting studio of their Dallas home to launch his first art book, Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors. The collection of portraits of the wounded warriors of America’s war on terror aims to raise awareness and funds for the post-9/11 veterans’ health care and employment programs of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

    • Betsy DeVos calls historically black colleges 'real pioneers when it comes to school choice'

      On Monday night, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos issued a statement celebrating historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), as some 90 of their leaders are in Washington to meet with congressional Republicans and President Trump. DeVos started off by lauding HBCUs for helping "students to reach their full potential," ever since their founding. "They started from the fact that there were too many students in American who did not have equal access to education," she said. "They saw that the system wasn't working, that there was an absence of opportunity, so they took it upon themselves to provide the solution." Then DeVos really doubled down on the self-serving euphemisms. "HBCUs are
