Top Ten 80s Pop Music Beers

Supporting a small-town brewery on the coast that got walloped by Hurricane Michael last year.

There's a state forest called Tate's Hell between here and there.

Tate's Helles reminded me of a note I've had floating around in drafts for a while; figured I'd dust it off and publish it. A little Dave Letterman fanfic.


Okay, folks, welcome back to the show. Let's open it up, Paul...

[pretaped Top Ten intro rolls]

Thanks, folks.

[ruffles cards]

Here we go. Paul, some beer music, please... it's time for Top Ten 1980s Pop Music Beers!

[applause, laughter, attempted oompah music]

That's right, 1980s beers, to do with the popular music here we go number 10... "Hop for Teacher!"

[enthusiastic applause]

Number 9... "Bock Lobster!"

[enthusiastic applause]

Number 8... "Helles for Children!"

[smattering of applause, sounds of confusion]

Number 7... "Gosebusters! Goooooosebusters!"

[wild applause]

They like those Gose Busters, eh Will? Number 6... Paul do you know about this one? "What About Mead? Mead! What About MEAD!"

[applause]

Number 5... Number 5... "Weisse It Always This Way." Actually I think that's from the 70s. Paul?

[Paul nods, that's a 70s tune.]

Number 4! Number 4. "You Bitter You Bet!"

[wild applause]

Number 3... "A New Saison!"

[smattering of applause]

Number 2. Number twooooooo. "Will Your Anchor Steam Hold?"

[pause]

Oh, folks, I'm sorry. That's a Top Ten song from EIGHTEEN EIGHTY-TWO! 1882!

[laughter]

And the Number One 1980s pop music beer.....

STOUT!"
