I heard that fat, lazy, drunk-guys sit around and talk about beer on the internet all day at work, instead of actually working...hellifiknow

The Buffalo Wild Wings commercial doesn't help our situation with the mass view of home brewing. Everybody I work with is like "Man I saw your commercial again last night! When do we get some bratwurst beer!?!? HAHAHAHA!"

Thankfully it didn't air here in Sweden. But way back we used to have a commercial that made fun of cheap commercial beer. They said you'd have to filter it through a loaf of bread and a dirty sock to make it taste good.

The irony was also that the beer that was favored in the commercial was a cheap, mass produced lager. I think it's from the late 90's.

Those of us without BWW locally were spared.

Here's the opposite situation - where I assumed the worst. I was talking to someone I met at work (on travel) about beer. I'm always a bit cautious - since I don't want to come off as too knowledgeable where people think they know what they're talking about. Slowly the conversation escalated (he must also have been cautious) until we're talking about good local beers, sours, etc., etc.

Finally the home set-ups come up. I mention I have a keezer... he says he has one too - and put a temp controller on it. Oh, and he does that because he uses soda kegs for his homebrew.

I wish I could understand what they were saying, but it kind of reminds me of the old "bitter beer face" commercials. I loved the look on the guy's face though.

A rough translation:

Many drink beer without additives. Lars Janson, however, does not.

What BS are ya talkin' about? I buy real cheap crap beer (he litterally says ugly beer. He uses ugly as a prefix) from the internet and filter it. (he references exactly WHAT it is he's filtering away, however I have no idea what he's saying since the accent is HEAVY)

I have a organization, I know what I'm doing.

He then holds up the beer soaked loaf of bread and comments it wasn't very good.

Regular people just don't understand. You have to filter it.

He drinks and makes the face.

Are the additives gone now?

Hahaha!

Real beer is made from barley, hops, yeast and water. No additives; just beer.

Sponsored by blablabla

The interview guy drinks his beer and the other guy says: Do you have fine beer? Can I have the last sip?

He then filters it more on the speaker, explaining the motion from the music makes the crap fall to the bottom.

Does it really fall to the bottom?

Yes.... I think.

Sponsored by blablabla.

When he swings it around over his head he says "Now the beer is pasteurizing in the bucket here"

Are the blablabla gone now?

Beer face.

Sponsor.

If you have to choose which beer, my fine beer or your filtered beer - which one would you drink?

He hesiates "Hmm, if I... but... hay, it's stacked in your favor. If I pick..." he then picks his beer, and drinks it defiantly and says it's really tasty.

The translation got a bit messy. xD
