Wow, it's hard to believe how many homebrewers are SO insecure about their hobby and how folks might perceive them, that instead of being flattered that something they are interested and passionate about is getting satired, they get their widdle feelings hurt, or pissed off about it.

Usually when we're bothered by something, deep down we believe it. So if folks get upset about a commercial poking fun at homebrewing they must think, deep down that there's a grain of truth to it....that maybe homebrew IS inferior to craft beer, or they suck as a brewer.

Me, I think it's a hilarious spoof on our hobby. I think it shows that homebrewing's gaining a level of cachet these day, that it's growing in popularity. Heck even the White House is brewing now (if you haven't heard )

If anything maybe it's BWW that is threatened by the rise in homebrewing. Remember when Budweiser, feeling threatened by craft beers picked on them? It's probably not too different.

A wise man (I think it was a character on the West Wing) once said, "If their shooting at you, that means you must be doing something right."

I'm more flattered by the commercial than bothered. It's nice to be hearing mention of homebrewing....

There's also a BWW thread talking about how cool it is that in many states (like Michigan) they actually have a great selection of local beers. And how in Michigan BWW supported Michigan Craft beer month in July. Even going so far as to selling really neat Michigan Craft Beer glasses with partial proceeds going to the Michigan Brewer's guild.

Pittsburgh is not as big on "Craft" beers. Most chains around here just have the norm. Yuengling tho, is mostly always on tap.

I thought it was pretty funny!

If there's anything to be upset by, it's the whole "you're a guy, so you're supposed to like football" marketing.
