Fictional Beers – Would you drink them?
In response to some recent requests, I’ve complied a list of fictional beers from popular TV shows. Now this isn’t and all inclusive list, but a list from some of my favorite shows some cartoons. Some of these I would try namely because of the hilarity of the skit or episode. The others seem to just be like a Miller Lite or Bud Lite type of beer. Which if you’ve been reading blog, should know by now that I have more of a snobby (or what a prefer to call a refined taste) in beers.
First would be Vän Der Bräu – Don’t Trust the B*** in Apt 23.
I hate this show was cute short, but I loved James Van Der Beek fictionalized self-absorbed version of himself in the show. So it’s fitting that he’d have his own beer with him on the label with a flowing lions mane.
Second is Alamo Beer – King of the Hill
King of the Hills is a great personification what rednecks do while drinking and sitting (standing) around and discussing nothing in particular. The show has some great episodes that revolve around the beer itself. And just the name is funny to me, I guess that can’t just call it Budweiser, ha.
Third is Dharma Initiative – Lost
If your trapped on an island with lots of crazy unexplainable things going on around you, you need a beer too. I love that the packaging is so plan and simple (just like all the other initiative products. It just makes me thing its a really crappy lite beer.
Fourth is Pawtucket Patriot Ale – Family Guy
This is another cartoon show who’s father character, drinks too much. I wander if this is a reflection of the creators childhood, it would explain a lot. Family has a few episodes to that focus on the beer a main theme. One even in which drinkers could find a golden ticket and go on a factory tour, all of which was a play on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Fifth is Samuel Jackson Beer – Chappelle Show
*bad words are replace with the word sandwich)*
[shouts] Good mothersandwhiching choice, mothersandwhicher! Samuel Jackson! Made painstakingly by me, Samuel L. Jackson! It’ll get ya drunk! You’ll be sandwhiching fat girls in no time! You might even fight a sandwich or two! Mmmm-mmm, bitch! – NUFF SAID –
Sixth and Lastly is Duff Beer – Simpsons
Who could forget this one. I think the is the most iconic of the fictional beers. Mainly because Simpsons have been around forever but because it has appeared in more episodes than most character (ex: Millhouse). Also who could forget Duff Beers Duffman, the buff, womanizing spokesman who is always surrounded by bikini-clad women. Small fun fact, Did you know Duff and Duff Light are the same beer just different labels…?
