Buffalo Wild Wings ad pokes fun at homebrewers

August 30, 2012 By: mike Category: Funny, Homebrew, Video

Buffalo Wild WingsJudging by all the indignant comments on YouTube, many homebrewers are offended by the new Buffalo Wild Wings ad that pokes fun at the hobby.

But, hey, we all have a friend who is always coming up with funky recipes like this guy. And it speaks volumes for the increasing popularity of the hobby that a national chain restaurant would take notice.

So relax, laugh and have a homebrew!

Out of beer? Tennessee man dials 911, gets a ride to jail

File this under “Things Not To Do When You’re Drunk.”

A 67-year-old Columbia, Tenn., man was jailed Saturday and accused of calling 911 at least nine times for non-emergency reasons, according to the Columbia Daily Herald.

Most of the calls were hang ups, but  police say Allen Troy Brooks called 911 and asked the dispatcher for a ride to get some beer. Brooks was arrested and charged with aggravated 911 calls in a non-emergency situation — a class A misdemeanor. He was later released on bond.

Here’s a partial transcript of the 911 call, taken from the video below by ABC News’ Nashville affiliate WKRN.

Caller: “Hey, you want to take me to the store?”

911 operator: “Want to take you to the store?”

Caller: “I want to go the store to get me a beer. I’ll pay you.”

911 operator: “OK. Sir. I can’t take you to the store to get a beer.”

Caller: “Yeah, you can come now.”

911 operator: “No sir, you’ve got 911.”

BUSTED. That’s a beer run fail.

Awesome beer video roundup

I’ve been saving up these videos, which range from funny to freaky, for one awesome beer video round-up. Enjoy!

Goose Island Beer Co. tapped its inner-Hall & Oates, with a nod to “(500) Days of Summer,” for this video promoting the release of 312 Urban Wheat Ale in cans:


Great 80s haircuts kick off this funny spot from New Zealand’s DB Export Dry, which asks the question of the modern man: “Wine list, sir?” Um, no.:


In this video(game) for Tallgrass Brewing Co.’ 8-Bit Pale Ale, the hero must collect the hops and get them back in time to make the next batch of beer!


And then there is this bizarre ad for Flying Dog Brewery’s Wildeman Farmhouse IPA, which Adweek called “the most inexplicable commercial for a new-beer release that you may ever see.”
