8-BIT PALE ALE: The Mountain Dew of Beers


Let me take you back in time before being a Geek was considered cool.

There I am, dressed in head-to-toe neon, sitting on a yellow linoleum floor chewing on my tongue in complete and utter concentration as I battle to the death while playing Cosmic Ark and beside me is a can of Mountain Dew and a bag of Doritos.

It is a classic picture of a young Gamer in the early/mid-eighties.

Fast-forward to 2012.

Here I am, dressed in head-to-toe lounge wear (Transformers t-shirt and black stretch pants), sitting on a carpeted floor chewing on my tongue in complete and utter concentration as I battle to the death while playing Limbo (okay, maybe not to my death) and beside me is a can of Miller High-Life and a bag of Doritos.

Not much has changed in thirty years.

Well played 8-Bit Pale Ale...well played.

You have truly captured a specific demographic.
