Lately I have been watching a lot of European football (soccer) on American TV channels, and one commercial in particular has stood out to me. Amazingly it’s the most recent 30 second Budweiser commercial. Now I am by no means a fan of their main beer brands, but there are a few things about this commercial that thrill and excite me. Watch the commercial, and then read on to see why I deemed it worthy of analysis.
One thing that you cannot do when you’re alone on an island, is to wander into the local liquor store on a Friday afternoon and pick up a six-pack of beer. Instead you have to make do with what you brought ahead of time. And since a few beers wouldn’t have lasted very long, I opted to bring a box of wine instead. It’s all about longevity after opening, and space constraints.
I finally followed through on my promise to review the Keepers Stout! God knows it took me long enough.
The Lighthouse Keepers Stout was first brought to my attention by my friend Jesse, who once asked me to review it. That was ages ago, well before my first failed attempt to do so. This fine beer is an Irish style stout, brewed to honour the brave men and women who have served (and in rare cases still serve) as lighthouse keepers along the stormy coasts of British Columbia.
