Beer Reviews for Everyman

with one comment

Howe Sound Brewing’s Twitter arm posted this clip Wednesday morning. It’s of two goofs down south opening one of HS’s beers (King Heffy), tasting it, and just saying whatever occurs to them. Yup, as you might expect, low production values, lack of humour and boring commentary make it nigh unwatchable.

As well, their outright ignorance about basic beer facts is so pervasive that I almost suspect a put-on (“How is a ‘beer’ different from an ‘ale'”? Really, guys?)

I know what you’re thinking. Why isn’t this video sending Chuck into a beer-nerd rage-fit? They’re reviewing beer but know nothing about it!

Well, I actually kind of like it. It’s just what it seems: two guys who don’t know a lot about beer drinking it, liking it, and talking about it. It’s honest and raw. Sure, they seem fairly ignorant but they also say, and this is key, that they’re going to have to go out and learn about the things they’re not sure about. And ultimately, what more could you ask?
