    Seems to be a growing trend this 'rebel sell' type of marketing, this time its a brewery called Brewdog with beers named such as Punk IPA, I have no idea about its business practices and workers conditions, but it is so blantant, the niche it is using.

    And of course it's nothing new advertising co-opting language and culture to sell shit.

    My housemate went to their pub and brought home a little pamphlet thing they'd given him. It was the most infuriating aspirational bollocks i'd ever read.

    "You're original, not like everyone else, so don't drink the same drinks as them, drink ours, cause we're, like, punky and shit, yeah?"

    Fuck 'em.

    They have a pub in Bristol - my friend's husband went there and was charged £4 for a half. I don't think he stopped for another one!

    Well, they have a terminal addiction to making beers they want to drink, so I wouldn't worry about it as they will all be dead soon.

    Punk IPA is quite nice, but I'd be embarrassed to buy it because of its ridiculous name (who wants to be associated with US prison catamites? Not me anyway) & the infuriating aspirational bollocks.

    Paulie Tandoori shut it you egg!

    anyone who drinks anything because of something they have read about it, rather than because of what it tastes like, is welcome to fuck off to another pub thank you very much.

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    I think there is a brewdog pub near the quayside in Newcastle, seemed to be quite cheap if I remember correctly. Then again every pub outside of London seems cheap to me.

    Not even slightly sexist! 'Edgy' my arse. This is just 1970s rubbish.

    This is much nicer than Brew Dog, comes without the edgy rubbish and when it's on offer in Sainsburys is cheaper.

    And it's got a cork - You can't whack beer bottles with corks in them.

    was in the boozer the other full of people who look like complete cunts...although didnt speak to anyone so they could have been very nice people...the beer was well fuckin lovely, and pretty much what ya would pay in any pub like that....they regularly have them as a guest ale in spoons as well. They had a barney with Diagio recently didnt they?

    Meantime ain't exactly cheap either, but at least they don't do that fuckin awful marketing that Brew Dog does.

    They do alright beers, but sell them in silly small bottles. No doubt to appeal to larger drinkers. :rolleyes:

    I quite liked their beer at first, but once I realised the extent of their hipster-attarcting, 1970s sexist, Shoreditch-twat, cod-punk cuntitude, I'm boycotting the fuckers.

    Most of the punk girls I know have sufficient good sense to wear clothes tbh. And those shoes would be worse than useless in a mosh pit.

    BrewDog have been around for years.

    These lot, Anarchy Brew from Alnwick (hence the name) do good beer. Not quite sure what their website is about.... blinded folded people in the snow :confused:
