Like many of you, I didn’t make it out to the Great American Beer Festival this year. But luckily for us, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog did, taking to the floor and asking all the right questions, gems like “Tell me, what beer pairs best with a TV dinner and a broken marriage?” and, upon being offered a sip of Dogfish Head T’weasons Ale, “Gluten free? I don’t want to try the beer, I just want to sniff where your balls used to be.”
Along the way, Triumph offers up good names for beers like “This Is Why I’m Morbidly Stout Stout” and “Gay After Three Beers Porter,” and he forces some beer geeks to take pulls off of a 40 of Olde English.
But the party doesn’t really get started until Triumph breaks out the breathalyzer and has people blow. I’ll leave it to your imagination to figure out where the breathing nozzle has been placed on this dog puppet.
Overall, it’s a lovely lampoon of beer geeks, our culture, and our penchant for unusual facial hair and interesting hats.
