HBO’s True Blood lost me after Season 2, when everyone starting turning into fairies and wood elves and whatnot, but I might just have to start watching again after a very special appearance in last night’s episode.
It seems that the writers of the show prefer craft beer over synthetic vampire potables, and decided to write one of their favorites – Flying Dog’s Raging Bitch – into the show. Word from the brewery is that this wasn’t a paid placement, it was an organic display of admiration for the beer, which enjoys a score of 88 on BeerAdvocate.
As you can see in the clip above, Sam agrees, endorsing it as being “pretty fu<#in’ good.” The scene also suggests the Belgian IPA has the power to lure a redneck out of the woods, which is good to know.
No word yet on if any characters on the show will transform into flying dogs, but given the other crazy crap that’s happened over the course of the years, I wouldn’t be surprised to see one chasing Sookie through a swamp sometime soon.
