Carlton Draught – Beer Chase

This new spot for Carlton Draught, called Beer Chase, is a great satire of the classic car chase that’s found in many famous movies. Obviously drinking and driving don’t mix, so you know they had to be careful with how they made this. Enjoy:

8-Bit Pale Ale Channels Retro Video Games

8-Bit Pale Ale

8-Bit Pale Ale from Tallgrass Brewing Company is a retro throwback to classic video games, and like those games, is “spectacularly simple at first glance yet remarkably fun and complex when you get into it”.

Our Hop Rocket infuses the character of Austrailian grown Galaxy Hops into an American Pale Ale, giving a unique tropical, almost melon aroma in a classic American style.

The packaging is deliciously retro, but it’s the commercial they recently debuted that really shows how tapped-in to the retro video game culture they really are:

Classic!

GE Connects Power and Beer

GE Turbine

On Super Bowl Sunday, GE will air the following commercial, titled ‘Power and Beer’, which attempts to connect their power with the beer making process.

Sure, it’s a stretch of a claim, and it highlights a big beer brand over the smaller craft brews that I’m sure they power as well, but it is interesting to see big brands connect themselves to beer making in a unique way.

Flying Dog Unleashes The Wildeman

Wildeman Farmhouse IPA

Flying Dog is an edgy brewer, and their ‘Wild Dog’ line of beers, which includes the Centennial Single Hop Imperial IPA, the Secret Stash Harvest Ale, and the Barrel-Aged Gonzo Imperial Porter, and the wildest of the wild.

However, for the introduction of their new brew, a Farmhouse IPA called the Wildeman, they may have outdone themselves:

According to Flying Dog:

His axe is stained with the blood of a thousand adversaries. We fall in behind him as he leads up into darkness. He turns his gaze on us. “Tentanda via est!” The way must be tried. Wildeman has arrived.

Legions of followers marched across Europe in his wake. But was most soon realized is that Wildeman is already inside of them, ready to be awakened. Will you fall in line or find the edge?

As for the beer itself,

Wildeman begins with notes of citrus and spice on the nose, followed by potent hop flavor. This extreme bitterness is balanced by light malt highlights and finishes dry, crisp, and with a slight hint of acidity.

Wildeman has a scheduled release date of January 30th, which means we only have a few more days to wait to see if the brew lives up to the hype, but at the very least, they’ve certainly grabbed everyone’s attention with an ad that’s hard to ignore!
