#32 – Bitter Beer Face

Photo taken: September 7, 2011

Americans may recall the popular ad campaign by Keystone Light beer back in the late 90’s where some schmuck would drink some other brand of beer and have their face exaggeratingly contorted into a grimace while horrified onlookers shouted “Ewwwww!  Bitter beer face!!!”  This photo was a happy accident that always reminds me of those much beloved commercials of my youth.  My sister Amy and her future husband were at the same ballgame I was attending with my two nephews (from another sister), and here she is bringing back a couple of alcoholic beverages from the concession stand for her and her sweetie.  Being the random shutterbug I am, I decided to fire up the camera and take a shot… and I have no idea why my sister made this face.  She had no clue until afterwards that I’d even had my camera out, so it wasn’t intentional.  While the photo’s unsurprisingly blurry since the shot was rushed, the result is still crystal clear…. what in the hell were you doing there, sis!?!?

  1. And she still loves you?

    Nice photo. You two still talking?

    • My sisters do their talking on Facebook, whose door i refuse to darken. And since they don’t follow my blog, she is unaware this photo is even on here (I would wager she has no recollection of it at all, being 7 years old)…

  3. Lots of beer drinking peeps have that expression when it comes to Coors’ beers.

  4. Well that definitely looks like she’s not overly pleased with that brewski. Maybe not enough foam? Maybe she suspects it was dispensed from the porta-potty and not the beer dispenser????

    • I’m not sure…I don’t even think she had sampled it yet. Maybe just the aroma was powerful enough to set off some alarms in the sensory department. I used to help my Dad collect aluminum cans along the side of the road, and the smell of hot, festering beer is one that still makes me ill. Maybe why I never took up drinking alcohol!

  5. That is clearly an inferior brew and should have been replaced immediately. No wonder she doesn’t talk to you…

    • Hey, I didn’t buy it! She did. And at the St. Louis ballpark, they ONLY serve AB brand beers… which really annoys the Chicago fans who can’t get an Old Style. Now that I think about it… the double digit price tag on that beer may be the culprit for the nasty face…

    We’ve been sampling a lot of local IPOs and I’ll bet our faces are worse than that one!
