If beer geeks were paying attention last night while watching True Blood 57 ("Everybody Wants to Rule the World") on HBO they would have seen numerous beer brands featured in the episode. Not unusual as both Merlotte's and Fangtasia frequently show beer during scenes. In this week's episode we see Bud Light, Budweiser, Corona Light, Dos Equis, Dos Equis Dark, Heineken, Heineken Light, Newcastle Brown, Pacifico, Tecate, Tsingtao, etc. Here are some screen grabs I took: I expect the typical "Meh." reaction at this point and thoughts about why all of the bar's beer is stored at room temperature, how it's a major fail, why there's so little beer, etc. However last night's episode got a bit crafty on viewers at around 12 mins and 30 secs into the episode. Featured: Star Island Single from Smuttynose Brewing Co. in Portsmouth, NH. Focus is not on the background, so it's a bit blurry. Congrats to Smuttynose on the subliminal support from the True Blood crew. Cheers!
