Why the Coors Light "bra ad" is groundbreaking

Why the Coors Light "bra ad" is groundbreaking

There’s currently a beer commercial known as “the bra ad.” It shows a woman dressed in office clothes returning to her apartment, kicking off her heels, opening her fridge, and cracking open a Coors Light before unhooking her bra and throwing it onto her couch. The on-screen text proclaims Coors Light “the official beer of being done wearing a bra.”

I can admit, I felt seen by this ad. My...

Beer Of The Week: Don’t forget Shiner Bock

Beer Of The Week: Don’t forget Shiner Bock
DrinkeryDrinkery is The Takeout's celebration of beer, liquor, coffee, and other potent potables.  

I can admit when I’m wrong. During The Takeout’s recent fantasy food draft focused on supermarket (i.e. easily accessible nationwide) beers, my colleague Dominic Suzanne-Mayer scooped up Shiner Bock for his team before I could. “If I could find Shiner near me,” I said, “I’d drink it more...

Yes, beer bottles can spontaneously explode

Yes, beer bottles can spontaneously explode

In my former job as editor at a craft beer magazine, I worked in an office full of beer bottles and cans. Stacked on shelves, refrigerated, cellared—they were everywhere. One evening, I was working alone in the office when a sound like a grenade going off jolted me out of my seat. After my heart started beating again, I peered into the main office room, where a can of beer had exploded and...

Just how full of white dudes is craft beer?

Just how full of white dudes is craft beer?

It’s one of the most tired clichés out there: Brewers are white, bearded dudes with potbellies who wear flannel and turn their noses up at your “regular beer.” (That latter point is definitely untrue .) But the rest of the cartoon—the dude, the beard, the unbearable whiteness of being—like most clichés, there’s more than a grain of truth in it . Craft brewers are overwhelmingly white dudes,...

Savory popsicles... can it work?

Savory popsicles... can it work?
FeaturesStories from The Takeout about food, drink, and how we live.  

In my last piece, which was about how I can use up a gallon of ranch dressing (I am never going to live that one down), one of the suggestions offered after the fact was... a ranch popsicle. Because I am a culinary degenerate and all-purpose clown-around-town, it did get me thinking. I prefer savory foods over sweet...

College kids brag to Princeton Review about all the beer on campus

College kids brag to Princeton Review about all the beer on campus

As a new school year draws close, college-track high schoolers the nation over are tasked with deciding where they’ll spend their next four years. There’s a ton to consider when doing so: the academics, the facilities, the quality of living, the ability to launch yourself into a reasonably successful career upon graduation, and countless other metrics. For some students and their parents,...

Busch “Latte” literally sings the praises of morning beer

Busch “Latte” literally sings the praises of morning beer

Beer marketing has long been in the business of selling you the possibility of good times, beach parties, romantic connections, talking frogs, devious penguins, and all manner of life’s other pleasures, as soon as you crack open a cold one.

As of late, however, some companies have embraced a more pragmatic approach to beer ads, highlighting the more common and everyday ways in which people...

Anheuser-Busch scoops up one of country's fastest-growing craft breweries

Anheuser-Busch scoops up one of country's fastest-growing craft breweries

It’s been two years since Anheuser-Busch InBev bought its most recent craft brewery, North Carolina’s Wicked Weed, which means the global beer behomoth was due for another scoop-up. Anheuser-Busch InBev was on a tear between 2010 and 2017, acquiring 10 small and independent breweries including Goose Island, Elysian, 10 Barrel, and Golden Road. Add another brewery to that list: Ohio’s Platform...

DrinkeryDrinkery is The Takeout's celebration of beer, liquor, coffee, and other potent potables.  

Visiting Seattle last month reminded me how spoiled the Pacific Northwest is for great beer, and not just of the hoppy variety. In Seattle alone, I found tap lists packed with Holy Mountain, Cloudburst, Reuben’s Brews, Chuckanut—I’d be thrilled to see just one of those back in Montana.

Luckily,...

Let’s talk beer with 2020 presidential candidate John Hickenlooper

Let’s talk beer with 2020 presidential candidate John Hickenlooper

Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper is the former governor of Colorado, and before that, mayor of Denver. But prior to both those, he was the cofounder of Denver’s Wynkoop Brewing, the first craft brewery in a city that now boasts nearly 80. He’s written a memoir about his time in beer, and was honored for his contributions to the industry at the annual Great American Beer...

Anheuser-Busch InBev banned from Indian capital for 3 years

Anheuser-Busch InBev banned from Indian capital for 3 years

The food and beverage industries are built on regulations, and when those regulations aren’t met, the penalties can often be severe. But there are severe penalties, and then there are banned-from-selling-anything-in-a-major-market-for-three-years severe penalties.

Reuters reports that Anheuser-Busch InBev has received a three-year government ban from selling any of its products in New Delhi,...

Hey brewers, what’s your go-to supermarket beer?

Hey brewers, what’s your go-to supermarket beer?
DrinkeryDrinkery is The Takeout's celebration of beer, liquor, coffee, and other potent potables.  

Most brewers probably don’t need to buy beer often, between what they can bring home from work and what their fellow brewers gift them. But on the occasions when they do find themselves at a grocery or convenience store, maybe in the mood for an old favorite or easy-drinking stand-by, what are...

DrinkeryDrinkery is The Takeout's celebration of beer, liquor, coffee, and other potent potables.  

Hopefully, you’ve heeded my advice and stocked your fridge with crisp pilsners for the hottest portion of the summer. But what’s a person to turn to when they’re thirsty for the easy-drinking aspect of a pilsner but with just a—press your pointer finger to thumb now—a smidgen softer character?...

North Carolina refusing to sell Utah brewery’s polygamy-themed beer

North Carolina refusing to sell Utah brewery’s polygamy-themed beer

Utah mainstay Wasatch Brewery has been turning out beer for over 30 years now, and among the more notable is the brewery’s mainstay Polygamy Porter. But while the beer has endured despite its titular fun at the expense of some of its home state’s cultural and religious traditions, its sale has been barred in another, clearly less well-humored corner of the United States.

PSA: Case of beer not to be substituted for child booster seat

PSA: Case of beer not to be substituted for child booster seat

I know children force their parents’ creativity sometimes. An old t-shirt becomes a tissue; an empty box becomes a temporary playpen; and did someone forget the baby wipes? But no matter how hectic errands with children in tow become, we—and Canada’s Ontario Provincial Police—must remind parents that no, a 30-rack of Bud Light is not an adequate child booster seat.

The police were forced to
