If you happen to be one of the foolish to try to raid Area 51 in the next few months, make sure you let the "aliens" know that Bud Light is offering free beer for all extraterrestrials.

Bud Light initially tweeted: "We'd like to be the first brand to formally announce that we will not be sponsoring the Area 51 raid." Soon, they back-peddled tweeting once more: "Screw it. Free Bud Light to any alien that makes it out."


The famous beer even designed a unique label to commemorate the event titled Area 51 Special Edition Bud Light. The label has a playful excerpt about aliens and their lack of beer in space, with a genius marketing statement near the bottom of the can that reads "We Come In Peace."

"Greetings Earthlings. This is the famous Area 51," it says at the top of the can. "We know of no space beer by any other life form which is brewed and aged to be more refreshing. Our cryogenic aging produces a light-bodied space lager with a fresh taste, a crisp, clean finish, and a smooth drinkability. Take us to your leader...for drinks."

But is anything really free? That would be too easy. In order for Area 51 aliens to get their free Bud Light, the tweet will need 51,000 retweets on Twitter.
