You don’t even have to be a real person to promote drinks. Celebrity cartoons are in on the act. Remember Homer Simpson’s favourite tipple - Duff Beer? Mexican Rodrigo Contreras Díaz. is producing it in Jalisco. It’s distributed only via internet. The limited edition lager beer has been a success, selling over 200 boxes (containing 12 bottles) in 2 weeks. Each box costs around $ 20 plus shipping.
I haven’t found out where on the internet you can get Duff Beer – it’s highly contentious as 20th Century Fox brought legal action against the Lion Nathan Brewery in Australia which was selling it – they had their products pulled off the shelves and destroyed (making it a collector’s item in the process).
The only legal Duff Beer is made by the Daleside Brewery here in the UK - Duff being the Gaelic word for “dark”!
