And now Breaking Bad also has its own beer...
Geege Schuman stashed this in Beer
"According to the edict that no aspect of our modern culture truly exists without inspiring its own signature beer, the Albuquerque-based Marble Brewery is coming out with a Breaking Bad-inspired variety (joining all the myriad beers we’ve seen lately based on bands, Game Of Thrones, The Simpsons, and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, the Paula Deen Got Fired Y’allager, the Supreme Court’s Voting Rights Act “Beyond The Pale” Ale, etc.). Breaking Bad Locations tweeted the news, saying Marble—which is occasionally featured on the show—would soon begin selling “Heisenberg’s Dark,” an India Black Ale, to coincide with the show’s final episodes.
Presumably, like the character, Heisenberg’s Dark has a deep complexity and refuses to go down easily. It also has more built-in name recognition than “Schraderbrau” would, while also not conjuring fears of spontaneous combustion or images of a sweaty Dean Norris. It’s also not carbonated meth-water, because that’s illegal.
As of now, you’ll have to go to Albuquerque to get Heisenberg’s Dark, though it’s possible demand will be so widespread that Marble will look into expanding. And soon Marble will find itself going to increasingly desperate lengths to maintain distribution, until before we know it, Coors gets its face blown off. [via UPROXX]"
They really missed a golden opportunity to make a blue beer for Breaking Bad.
Wait, did they say they have a Game of Thrones beer and a Simpsons beer too?
You heard correctly: "Gambling on the idea that there may be overlapping interest in enjoying swordfights and rampant nudity while also getting drunk, Brewery Ommegang and HBO have partnered on a series of beers patterned after Game Of Thrones—a show in which people enjoy swordfights and rampant nudity while also getting drunk. And though one might expect a Game Of Thrones beer to be a thick mead, the sort of incapacitating grog that leads to rash decision-making and mad grabs for power, this first release is anything but.
It’s the Iron Throne Blonde Ale—a light, crisp, smooth beer that can sneak up on you, just like the fair-haired Lannisters it’s modeled after. At a full pint and 9.4 fl oz. per bottle, these are built to last through an entire episode, and they boast just enough alcoholic content that after you finish one, you probably wouldn’t even notice you’re sitting on a chair made of melted swords. Still, for those looking for something more substantial—a beer that matches the full dramatic weight of the show, say—you’ll have to wait for heavier future varieties. Iron Throne has all the gravity and complexity of one of those “Joffrey Getting Slapped” montages, though it’s every bit as suited to revisit over and over again."
I wonder if it has trouble keeping a head.
You had me at "Joffrey Getting Slapped" montage:
What, no Stark Ale?
