Continuing on the thematic of the hipster like brews; I came across a wonderful specimen of the cheap-canned beer called Porkslap Pale Ale. I think the brewery industry is running out of names to attract the crowds. In any case, Porkslap Pale Ale is not attractive because of its name, but because of its literal graphic translation of it in the cans artwork. Two pigs performing a beautiful and delicate chest-bump…I am certain that somewhere in this image there is a subliminal message to eat bacon.
Butternuts Beer & Ale in Garrettsville NY is doing some fine job marketing their cans to the ‘cool’ vibe of Brooklyn. Hipsters all over the place are screaming to get their porkslap on. Well, let’s hope it lasts, before it goes to mainstream…in any case, I’m sure Butternuts Beer & Ale will come up with something to maintain everyone happy. The beer is quite good for the price it sells for, a nice crispy subtle hoppy ale. If you´re not drunk enough when your drinking this, you might even feel a touch of pork…I mean ginger.
Just wanted to put up this video that shows some of the wonderful examples of beer names...hipsters love their beer and so do I.
