    “Fill with mingled cream and amber,
    I will drain that glass again.
    Such hilarious visions clamber
    Through the chambers of my brain.
    Quantist thoughts – queerest fancies,
    Come to life and fade away:
    What care I how time advances?
    I am drinking ale today.”
    – Edgar Allan Poe

    am I the only one wondering why the film crew only had access to two working models?  Perhaps there are only two made in existence…  I will now quietly speculate as to the arcane and precious ingredients needed to conjure such dark machinations.

    If you describe a gorgeous, fluffy, aromatic, sensuous head of foam on your beer as a “foul-tasting, foamy barrier between your lips and your beer” you are seriously undereducated and unappreciative of one of the finer aspects of the most amazing and most important creations of all time, beer

    Everyone knows the secret to a good head is the proper splitting of a beer atom.

    I agree with Bob. On another note, Brando is not the maker, only a distributor in this sense. The commercial, mug and origin are all Japanese. It is manufactured by Takara Tomy Arts, as you can see in the final frames of the video. Here is the original website:

    The Japanese have to be the only group of people to love >2 fingers of head.

    Which is absolute nonsense, given that their beer is in fact quite good, for lager.

      I like to think of them brainstorming cross-sections of people enjoying their product.

      “Okay, we got younger parents, older parents, businessmen, boys’ night out, girls’ night out, punk band. Anything we forgot?”

      “What about guys drinking by themselves in a darkened room?”

      “Ah! Important demographic, can’t forget them!”

    A plastic mug that makes your beer taste flat? Where do I sign up?

    We here at the Cult of the Stache wish to state that we disapprove of this invention, disapprove of excessive beer head, and disapprove of Mr. Frauenfelder’s call for Prohibition.  We recommend Mr. Frauenfelder should grow a large handlebar and cut back on the caffeine.
