Beer Clothing

hawaiian-shirt
I’m not sure I’d wear any of these (nobody wants to see me in anything this tight) but for the right beer geek … maybe?! Created by an Australian clothing company, BlackMilk, they have three beer-themed outfits for the discerning woman who also loves beer. There’s a dress, a bathing suit and leggings.

First, there’s the beer dress.

Secondly, a beer swimsuit.

And finally, beer leggings.

Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom of each page, where there are lots of photos and self-shots of people wearing the beer clothing.

One interesting addition is they point out that beer is known by many names in the process from grain to glass, and list them in a flowchart.

Beer In Ads #781: A Harvest Of Rich, Ripe Oats


Monday’s ad is for the Australian beer Tooheys Oatmeal Stout. It looks to be an older ad, pre-WWII possibly, but I’m not sure. Since it refers to the Oatmeal Stout as building “radiant health,” I suspect that it’s from a time before the age of television. It seems to me that such health claims tend to be in ads from before the 1940s.

Spill-Proof Beer

As far as I can tell, the Australian beer brand Hahn Brewing has some of the cleverest beer commercials around. I suspect there’s not much to the beer, even though it was founded by Chuck Hahn, who also started Malt Shovel Brewing (a.k.a. James Squire), and both are now owned by Lion Nathan. But the beers appear to variations on light lagers, running the gambit from Hahn Super Dry, Premium, Premium Light to Hahn Ice. I’ve had the pleasure of judging at GABF and the World Beer Cup with Chuck several times. At any rate, this ad is for Spill-Proof Beer. Enjoy.
