Robot Brewery Tour: The Best Video You’ll See Today

If there are two things I love it’s craft beer and indie music.  Imagine my delight when I discovered this video featuring Will Oldmam (AKA indie folk heavyweight Bonnie “Prince” Billy) and Dogfish Head brewmaster Sam Calagione.  Sam plays a robot who has happily removed humans from the brewing process, and he gives Oldham a tour of his facility. Hilarity and irony ensues.  It’s great stuff.

I had no idea that either of these guys had such comedy chops – this video is 11 minutes of gold.  It debuted at the Off-Centered Film Festival in Austin last week.

I especially like how the robots ingest beer and how willing Oldham is to try it out for himself!  Enjoy!

    So…what do you just look for weird videos all day long? That was, um…Interesting Jim. I guess I really don’t get it. However the lubrication process was funny.

      That’s how I lubricate as well, and I’m not sure why you think it’s funny, Don. It a sensible, high throughput way to efficiently introduce fluids into the body. It just takes a while to get used to it.

    […] Or how indie folk hero Bonnie “Prince” Billy starred with Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione in the Robot Brewery Tour video we posted here before.  The signs are everywhere […]
