I tend to do) got me thinking what other movies feature craft beer.
In "Fast Food Nation" both Willis and Hawke are drinking their beers from the bottle so neither was a true beer drinker. I don't recall any movie at any time featuring a beer geek or a beer geek type conversation. I'm not asking for a "Sideways" for beer drinkers but a scene or character in a movie would be a nice wrinkle.
As I've thought about it more and more it just seems odd that this sort of character or scene about beer geekery doesn't exist in film. I know that whenever you see a major brand label like Bud Light or Budweiser, those are paid product placements. Those product placements also make me think less of those characters in the movie I'm watching.
Am I missing a movie somewhere (aside from documentaries like "Beer Wars") where someone who might buy a bomber of beer and pour it in a glass is portrayed, whether positively or negatively? I'm just kind of shocked that this doesn't exist. The only character I've found in any forum is Andy from "Weeds" who enjoys a Stone beer which makes sense since he is interested in good food and had made a living as some sort of chef. Why aren't there more characters like Andy in movies?
