Alabama tourism ad
« on: March 09, 2018, 12:10:13 AM »
Here in Ohio, the Alabama tourism authority has started running a tv ad campaign touting the state's craft brewers. That's the sole subject of the ad!  Saw it for the first time just now.  No names used, but, way to go, majorvices (and everone else down there!)

So the craft brewers had no idea they were being pitched as a tourist draw?!  THAT'S crazy!

I had no idea. But I'm head brewer/production manager. The GM may have known about it. He doesn't tell me crap. ;)

Tagline could have been: "Alabamy: We ain't as red neck as you think we is."

Hope you can see the ad.  It's nothing like that!  Anyway I had noticed the buzz building around,  particularly, Huntsville.  I hope some AL beers get distributed up here eventually. Not like I wouldn't want to visit, just not likely feasible.

Ok I found a link.  It's apparently not brand new (came out in June), just brand new to the OH tv market. Anyway:

Thanks! Pretty good. We also make Rockets. Bring your kids down for Space Camp (or the new Cyber Camp) and have some beer while your here.

Ha! I knew exactly where is was filmed the moment I saw it too. I am super jealous of their Sprinkman brewhouse. I love Eric but that bastard ...
