So when I said official Duff Beer has landed in Australia what I really meant was I’m currently drinking one – one of the first cans in the country – you gents will have to wait until May 28. Yep it’s here, officially licensed and approved by 20th Century Fox. In the past Duff Beer has only been available through counterfeit and imitations. This is the first official Duff Beer from the people who created the Duff brand via the most famous cartoon family of all time, The Simpsons.
Australia is the first country in the world to launch Duff Beer and the good folks at Frank PR tell me I’m one of the first the to taste it. So how does the ‘Australian Edition’ of Homer’s favourite beer taste? Pretty good actually – crisp and refreshing. They’ve obviously worked hard to make sure the hype matches the taste!
For those wanting to be first to sample the wonderful Duff Beer in an authentic setting, Duff are installing a pop-up Moe’s Tavern at the Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel which will be open to the public from the 23 May – 30 May. I’m told the pop up will be a true representation of the legendary Moe’s Tavern of Springfield fame. With Duff Beer exclusively on tap, Moe’s Tavern will also be serving up a host of Springfield’s finest food including; Krusty Burgers, Duffalo Wings and Lard Lad donuts.
Duff Beer will be available from the 28th of May 2014 at BWS and Dan Murphys for RRP$45.00 a case.
