Hmmm, now I just have less respect for BWW's than I had before.  Their wings were good like 5+ years ago, then they go s***tier quality meat and everything is way too expensive.

I thought it was kinda funny.  I think we've all got that one person in the brew club whos still at the spit bucket bucket required stage.  Or that person who thinks its a good idea to add habenero to every recipe...

I guess I'm old and jaded from spending too many years in the advertising biz....I find about 99% of all commercials stupid and insulting.

ok, as a group, our beer is some of the best in the world...so yeah, that message is somewhat offensive.....but look at what is going on in the background....he's got taps coming out of the walls, fermentations going in every corner, kegs packed in conspicuous places, tubes and homemade contraptions sitting everywhere...he's got the obligitory brewing companion (in this case a perturbed cat), and the dude has a beard.  Sadly, they sort of nailed it on a stereotypical level.  His friends like lousy beer and bad wings....and who hasn't had a bad "bratwurst" beer from a newbe brewer?

So it is funny, as it looks like my basement brewery/furnace/storage room (albeit, mine is cleaner), and I own my mad (brewery) scientist persona.
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...

I thought it was funny. Was I the only one to notice that his "friends" were his co-workers?  No pressure there, eh? Then they go to the restaurant, they have plenty of elbow room and reliable beer, a pretty young thing serves them and scoots out of the way, etc. I hardly saw it as a slur against homebrewing any more than commercials featuring bad cooks condemn all home cooking.

Don't get me wrong, the commercial is inane, as most commercials are. But I think it's harmless as far as homebrew is concerned. Socializing with co-workers you don't like, maybe not so much...

I do socialize with co workers over wings and sometimes we do get wings from or go to BWW. They also know that I homebrew :)

Maybe I should try to develop a bratwurst beer :)

If their goal was to get people to watch their commercial, they succeeded. If their goal was to get me to buy their wings, they failed. But I wouldn't have gone to BWW anyway, even without that commercial.
