Mike's Hard Lemonade Co. is a ready to drink beverage manufacturer based in the United States. It is distributed by Labatt Breweries of Canada in the United States and owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev[1] globally. The company produces a family of products based on its original Mike's Hard Lemonade, first introduced in Canada in 1996, a mix of malt liquor, natural flavors and carbonated water. Mike's entered the U.S. market on April 1, 1999, changing the beverage to a mixture of lemonade flavor and an unflavored malt liquor base, due to differing tax and beverage laws.

Founded in 1999 by Anthony von Mandl,[2] the company moved its headquarters from Lakewood, Colorado to Seattle, Washington in 2005 to be closer to its former parent, Mark Anthony Group Inc. of Vancouver, B.C., Canada, a privately owned manufacturer and distributor of wines, hard ciders, and other alcoholic beverages. In Sept. 2013, the company announced it was moving its headquarters to Chicago.[3]
