Matthew McConaughey's older brother Mike "Rooster" McConaughey may be a self-made millionaire, but he still appreciates free beer. TMZ reports that the star of the new reality series West Texas Investors Club, is a huge fan of Miller Lite's refined flavors and decided to name is son Miller Lyte in the brew's honor. SABMiller — which may soon merge with fellow beer giant Anheuser-Busch InBev — appreciated the not-so-subtle homage to its brand and decided to send 24 cases, or 576 cans, of beer to Rooster. Word is that Rooster's son isn't his only offspring named after an adult beverage. His daughter's name is Margarita Olympia.
