there already is camo malt liquor, for those urban warriors.

But those brands of beer are what all the hunters are already drinking.

Drinking and hunting: what a safe combonation!

Great. Now 90% of the litter you find in the mountains will be camouflaged.

Sounds like Darwinism in action to me.

There are few things more American than the marriage of alcohol and firearms.

Is it bad of me that the first image in my mind was Hillary in camoflauge with a shotgun in one hand and that beer in the other?

I love that you read AdFreak -- it's great!

Finally, beer makers figure out a way to connect with that hard-to-reach redneck demographic.

Remember SLOG vs Squirrel! Take no prisoners!

Are they trying to make it less visible as litter?

In most states it is a felony to be intoxicated while in possession of a firearm. Some states have specific laws against drinking and hunting. Seems like Miller and Anheuser-Busch are opening themselves up for a lot of flack if they are truly marketing the product this way.

I mean, could you imagine if any of these companies put their logo on something like, I dunno, a race car? Crazy!!!

Confidential to Miller and Anheuser-Busch: A fluorescent orange can for hunting would be way cooler. Most animals wouldn't notice it (um, unless of course you actually moved it to your lips), and it'd be a hell of a lot easier to pick up your trash in the woods.

I agree with Dougsf. Especially since I grew up hunting.

Cammo cans are just going to sit in the woods and pollute them - and having drunk hunters is way worse than having hunters high on Jesus.

What a couple of pansy bandwagon-jumpers. Schmidt's cans have had these motifs for years.

Any hunter that drinks anything but Old Style or Kokanee is a leaker.

Posted by poster Girl | May 19, 2008 4:20 PM

That makes me want to shoot someone in the face.

Posted by Greg | May 19, 2008 4:25 PM

Ha ha ha, #15 is pretty right on here. As a matter of fact, I was introduced to Kokanee (recently, we don't have it in CA) while eating jerky made from a Bison my host had felled with a 45.

Posted by Dougsf | May 19, 2008 4:28 PM

Sorry kids, but where I grew up if you were out hunting, the ONLY acceptible beers were either Buckhorn or Lucky Lager.

Posted by COMTE | May 19, 2008 4:48 PM

Hey wait, where'd the Sloggers go? must be sunny in Seattle. Or the Pavlovian desire kicked in when they saw a beer...

Posted by hillpagan | May 19, 2008 5:04 PM

how about desert camo for our boys in iraq?

Posted by skye | May 19, 2008 5:11 PM

@15 wins.

But, I just thought of use for the camoflage beer cans - we can use them against the pit bulls if they're full ... the cans full, that is.

Greg @16: You're really Dick Cheney, aren't you?

Posted by RainMan | May 19, 2008 6:40 PM

Any hunter worth his salt already has a camo koozie.

"Bitter" Beer?

Posted by michael | May 19, 2008 8:05 PM

My favorite line from the Uncyclopedia article about American beer:

"Most enthusiasts say it tastes 'cold,' even though cold is not a flavour.

Posted by Greg | May 19, 2008 8:33 PM

Looks like digi camo, which just doesn't appeal to me the way old school camo does. Personally, I think camo ice coolers are a better idea.

Posted by Bob | May 19, 2008 9:25 PM

@18 Buckhorn was my first beer. Ah, good times, good times.

Rainer beer was #2.

Posted by drewl | May 19, 2008 9:53 PM

Buckhorn and CBL could generate hangovers of not only biblical proportions but they could actually detonate forebrain headaches after just the first couple of cold ones.
