In recent months Lion (makers of Tooheys, XXXX and James Boag) have been leaking details of an upcoming product aimed at the beer lover who would like tap beer at home but cant be bothered with a home brew set up. Known as Tap King, details about the system and a new website have just been put online ahead of the official product launch. The system uses a reusable tap assembly that attaches to disposable plastic refills that lye down on its side, taking up less space in the fridge than the mini kegs of Heineken and the like. Lion are hoping this system will be as popular as the capsule coffee rage. It looks like the system will launch with refill beers like Tooheys New and Extra Dry, XXXX Gold, Hahn Super Dry, James Boag Premium and James Squire Chancer. Check out the Comical Instructional Video above to give you a good look at how this new key system will fill up your fridge. Read the rest of this entry »

If you were heading to Melbourne’s CBD this morning you may have noticed a giant Pot Glass floating in the sky, not to dissimilar to the giant pot featured in the Carlton Draught Skytoop ad that has been doing the rounds of Australian TV lately. The giant pot is 30 meter high hot air balloon that Carlton has commissioned just in time to float above the AFL Finals, so if you missed expect to see it a bit more over the coming months. Read the full story after the jump or watch the video above of the Skytroop pot that has inspired the balloon. Read the rest of this entry »
We are kicking off a feature of classic Aussie beer ads this week with the one above for VB. While the tune for the ad is the familiar “best cold beer is vic” tune it is slightly altered to try and explain the mystery of how you end up with a kabab after on a night on the turps. Sit back and enjoy, then let us know any kabab experiences you may remember below. Read the rest of this entry »
Ah beer commercials, some companies spend millions of dollars to create huge ad campaigns with outrageous stunts while others come up with something simple that works well. The above ad works well because as we all know, there is nothing funnier than fart jokes. The ad is for Troegs brewing company, an independent brewery based in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. The hook in the ad is that farting and burping is only natural just like their beer. According to their website they only distribute within a 3 hour radius of the brewery so if you want to blame your farts on the beer you better head over to Pennsylvania, other wise just watch the ad above and enjoy.

Hall and Woodhouse are a brewery from Dorset in the UK and date back to 1777 and one of their more interesting products is the Fursty Ferret. Ledged tells it that local ferrets were often found sneaking in the back door of the local inn owned by Miss Rose Gribble to sample the tasty beer. So to celebrate Hall and Woodhouse produced the Fursty Ferret in 1980 and now is one of their most popular brands, for people and the odd weasel like creature. The brewery also makes a range of badger beers, we are not sure what the story is there but maybe badgers like a drop or two of the golden stuff too? Hall and Woodhouse also have the license to brew HB beers for the UK, using the traditional Munich recipes. The Fursty Ferret was originally a seasonable beer produced in autumn but now it is available all year round in 4.4% 500ml clear glass bottles. You cant miss the lovely ferrets on the label.

We are not 100% sure if this stuff is beer, but the ad is too good to not use it. It’s another amazing ad from Japan. It looks as if their beer called ‘Be’ is available in different colors, there’s pink, green and blue so what better to advertise it than three kittens dyed the same colour playing a piano. The advertising people in Japan must have been on on some interesting drugs when coming up with this one. Bolt yourself to your chair (as you will fall off laughing) and enjoy.
There’s nothing worse than having your beer stolen, then again its only Bud Light. Today’s You Tube is quiet a funny one and you don’t know who gets the most traumatic experience the girl or the guy. Probably the guy. Bud Light has had some great commercials and with the Superbowl only days away you can bet they will have a cracker lined up, hopefully we will be able to feature it soon. Bud Light was only launched back in 1982 and has become America’s favorite beer; to keep up with demand it is brewed at all of Anheuser-Busch’s 12 breweries in the USA. The beer is called light because of its low carbohydrates, it is a full strength beer (in American Terms) with 4.2% alcohol volume, and is brewed using all natural ingredients, just water, barley, malt, hops, rice and of course yeast.
