After 500 episodes of the world’s most effective product placement, Duff Beer is now a drinkable reality. According to the beer’s website:
The Legendary Duff Beer is a premium German pilsner that holds a crisp, light refreshing taste along with iconic packaging. The product has certainly fulfilled it’s namesake in becoming a modern day legend, developing a cult following across Europe and the rest of the world.
Now for the bad news. As of now it’s only available in the United Kingdom. I know, I was upset when I heard too. But that’s not all, the company’s site makes no mention of “The Simpsons,” which makes it all but certain that this was done without the consent of Matt Groening and company. So unless you have a friend overseas to send this to you, the chances of getting this stateside seem slim. That said, if you live in the UK and have a PayPal account, let us know what this 4.7% alcohol by volume piece of Springfield tastes like. I hope it’s cromulent.
