Populist beer commercials are nothing new. When they’re not presenting scantily clad women, they’re trying to bump up their everyman cred. It’s interesting to see one go so hard over craft beer, though. Is craft beer the new latte?

This next one isn’t even a beer commercial, but plays on a similar thing.

Regarding the Sling ad, I swear it sounds like he’s saying “piggy” rather than “picky” and it confuses me every time.

  1. It’s hard for me to balance my own reverse-snobbery with the fact that I love microbrews* and just can’t stand the taste of Budweiser.

  2. Peter says:

    It bothers me that most craft beers are IPA’s, which are disgustingly bitter.

    • Yeah, I don’t like IPA’s either (for the same reason) I don’t understand it. Sometimes, the same company will have several different kinds of IPA.

        I hate IPAs, I just do not get the appeal. I like a good stout, or an amber (depending on my mood).

        • Jaybird says:

          I think it’s little more than alcohol content.

          If you look at the ones hovering around 4 or 5%, they’re all the various dark and rich beers.

          If you look for the 7s and the 8s? They’re all IPAs.

    Remember this one from 1986?

Queenland

Greetings from Stonebridge a fictitious city in a fictitious state located in a tri-state area in the interior Mid-Atlantic region. We're in western Queenland, which is really a state unto itself, and not to be confused with Queensland in Australia.

Nothing written on this site should be taken as strictly true, though if the author were making it all up rest assured the main character and his life would be a lot less unremarkable.
