Just a little something from Metropolitan Brewing and friends!

My favorite thing at this very moment.

Highlights: 1:45, 1:55, 2:01. And I went to high school with the dude at the bar (0:55, 1:36).

"THE FLIP SIDE (BAR)" (by Jay Diaz)

"This carpaccio’s effin ridiccio"

"Eat It Don’t Tweet It" by American Hipster + Key of Awesome (by barelypolitical)


  • Stop the Madness (1985) Let’s get a bunch of drug-abusing adults to sing for the kids. Watch for the Governator’s cameo.
  • Users are Losers (1987) This song wasn’t catchy enough to hold my attention for 60 seconds.
  • Be An Original (1988?) I totally remember this. You got the rii-ee-iii-eee-iii-ght to say NO!
  • Hanna Barbara PSA from the 70s. No comment.
  • Turtle Tips (1990) Another blast from my past. And yes Donatello, drug dealers ARE dorks. But I don’t see how that’s a bad thing.
  • Be Somebody… Or be somebody’s fool (1984) Check out the sweet breakdancing. Mr. T sure knows how to reach the children.
  • Drug Rap (1990) Wow Canada. You are so white.

And lastly, did D.A.R.E. make anyone else want to try drugs or was it just me?

Ska Brewing Parody Mocks More Successful, Better Looking Craft Brewers

DURANGO, COLO., (Mar. 6, 2011) —It’s different colors, it has alcohol, it’s beer… but for Dave Thibodeau and his co-minions at Ska Brewing Co., (the very first craft brewery to copy Oskar Blues by canning), beer is a passion, a business, and a personal quest to make delicious craft beer and stay employed at the same time. “Brew Minions”, viewable at  , is a parody of the Discovery Channel’s recent series “Brew Masters”, featuring Sam Calagione and Dogfish Head Brewery…

I was lucky enough to attend (dance my ass off at) both Chicago shows this weekend. God, it was great. I can’t get enough D-Plan.

Tuesday evening’s Chicago Tonight “New Analysis” segment featured Crain’s Managing Editor, along with Metro’s very own Tracy Hurst. The editor didn’t seem to be on the exact same page as us, but Tracy managed to offer her [educated] two cents.

And, in case you missed it, here’s the Crain’s “graft beer” article which I shared on Sunday. Check out the recently added videos.

Look out world! Its my turn for video embarrassment! And plugging Metro. Because thats what I do!

In case you missed the Chicago Tonight segment from Monday (2/1/10), both Metropolitan and Half Acre were featured.

Lots of footage of our brewery and lots of Doug talking! Fun fun!

And I love the how the reporter’s Chicago accent comes out when he says “lager.”
