Default Anyone else see the commercial bashing home brew?

I saw it during one of the NFL games last night. I believe it was a buffalo wild wings commercial. Essentially, they compared going to Bdubs for the game against going over to your "crazy mad home brew scientist's" place. I believe a "bratwurst ale" was mentioned. Sounds gross, but I bet someone here could pull it off in a surprisingly delicious way. That's what home brewing is all about!

Anyway. What gives? Why does Buffalo Wild Wings have to bash home brewers? *throws yellow foul flag*

That's an old one from last year. Had a couple threads on it already. It was a little funny to me,but a lot more insulting. Like we're just a bunch of dumb,brain dead citybillies or something. I haven't been in there since they banned smoking & raised prices to compensate for the fact that US SMOKERS AREN'T THERE ANYMORE!!!

This thread has been done numerous times. Plus i've seen Revvy talking on here about how most Bdubs support homebrewers/craft brewers very well.

Not around here. They support whoever has the money for their inflated prices.

You have to admit, it is hilarious when he sniffs the krausen and proclaims, "this will be ready in 2 minutes."

With some people, if you urinate on their head, but say it's a "joke", they will laugh at it.

Whatever. I don't do the wing thing, anyway. There are much better parts of the chicken.

Yup. It's an insult like only THEY know what real pisswater is. Yours is rotten pisswater with his disseased sausage fell off in it. They're prices seem to go up every couple of months when we were going there. Haven't been in there for several years now.
