Hey I saw a commercial yesterday during the football game. It was making fun of homebrewers! Pretty lame if you ask me. I don't think I'll be going back there.

Interesting... I don't think it's ever a good idea to try and capture market share by demeaning something else, gives people a REASON not to patronize you.

Haven't seen the commercial, probably because I watch SO little TV. Never been to Buffalo Wild Wings anyway.....just doesn't look like someplace I would want to eat. Chains like that are really only a notch or so above fast food IMHO. But to each his own.

RDWHAHB!

It was definitely tongue in cheek. People are way to easily offended these days.

Plus that commercial has been around for a couple of months already.

Actually I thought it was kinda funny. I'm not worried about it at all. I'm very happy drinking my homebrew, which is way better than what I am going to get there, without paying $6 a pint. None of my friends have said anything because they know that my brew is damn good

Some people are very defensive about their Ugly Baby Syndome Beer. I think instead of the bratworst beer in that commercial the homebrewer should have handed them "dark" beers. Because anything darker than the color of yellow beers is bad to them or most people anyway. By the way that guy must have used a little too much starsan! ha.
Seems that is outdated knowledge or a sterotype of homebrewers in the past,yes in the past all Ive ever heard from people is how bad homebrew was then, that and they probably didnt know what they were doing to begin with not to mention the lack of what we have currently. But also there are noobs that tend to go overthetop too soon-which is what makes the commercial kind of funny. Also a noobs first few beers dont turn out quite what they were expecting,in generall often but not always. I guess Im kinda picking apart the joke but that is my interpretation-and I think its still funny.

That said Im still going to try this place out which Ive never tried, and by the way what number BWW thread is this about? like # 495?

And also, if all they have is crappy beer there and crappy food, they wont get my dollar again. I hated last goin to Ruby Tuesdays where the menu states they have DFH 60 min IPA,well guess who doesnt really have that? But still its on the menu,that and the other few good beers that were on the menu ,yep didnt have those either. I was stuck with drinking a skunky bottle of Stella,which I didnt finish and left irritated with an altogether bad experience from that place anyway.
