Transformers Beer - Hoptimus Prime in UK Pubs!

Now for a UK sighting of a different variety. Rolling into Pubs across the UK in time for Saint Patrick's day is Transformers themed beer - yes, we've hit that point in tie-in products! Named "Hoptimus Prime" it is "brewed using only British hops and barley malts this beer exhibits a rich array of malt and traditional fruity hop flavours, complemented by a crisp dry finish. The unique flavour of Hoptimus Prime transforms as each individual ingredient combines to satisfy all of your hoppy needs."

It's a seasonal ale from the Robinson's Brewery on sale only through March and April. Check out more information on their website here, if you are a fan who enjoys a little drink down the local now and then. And remember, if you're drinking, let someone else roll out!

I've drank gnat's piss that's stronger than that. Although it does take a long while to get together a pint of gnat's piss.

There are going to be a lot of drunk UK TF fans out there. Hopefully the beer at least tastes good.
Protoman
It's not the first time either.

I find it distasteful that these people would use an entertainment franchise mainly geared towards children to sell alcoholic beverages.
Sidecutter
Um. Wow. They totally stole this from the New Albanian Brewing Company...

You know pubs in the UK don't actually serve children . . .
Alooulla
I remember this was the name of a beer from Fable 2...The description is pretty similar too.

Hope Optimus has a designated driver. XD

gokuz23

DJW107PRIME
That's tight I want it!
Sovietbot
I certainly do not love beer and indeed the entire alcohol, but for the sake subjects of TF can barely try.
QLRformer
But Optimus is a role model... this may not end well.
RoadRage
I can see the commercial!!!

Optimus Prime: Transform and ROLL OUT...........and buy a good beer like Hoptimus Prime so help us Deafeat the decepticon's by having a good ice cold beer!!!! Buy a Hoptimus Prime today so Megatron's once and for ALL!!!

THIS HAS MADE MY DAY!!!
scubaboy31
Haha BRILLIANT! Very much hoping my local gets this on. Shame it's only 4.1, but should be good for a session.

Gonna need to track down one of those pump heads at some point, that would be quite the drunken prize!
Kaijumaster
Hoptimus POrime is from a Pensselvciania brewqery....also I just came from a beer fest so I totyally aint spell checking this post.! whooo!
Autovolt 127
It would be win if Peter Cullen narrates the commercial like John O'Hurley does with Coors Light.

Grab your drinks and run, the fun police is here!

I'd like a taste. Are the bottles/caps worth collecting?

Prude. BORING! It's funny/clever as shit.

They sell this in the U.S., my brother texted me a pic of a bottle from a store in Amherst, MA, a few days ago.

Nice, I love real ale and this sounds like a good find. Alas it wasn't on sale at last week's beer festival.

Hmm... Beer...
Taziir
I need to find this somewhere near Newcastle...
battleboy
I must find this! any chance anybody knows if anyone is importing this to FL?

Ruckus brewing Hoptimus Prime is on tap at my local Unos.

Probably the best comment to come out of this thread for a while.

All those asking for bottle caps, or for it to get shipped to the US and ESPECIALLY saying its infringing on IP/a bad role example to kids simply don't understand how Real Ale works in the UK. These sort of plays on words and puns are quite common and theres little to no chance you'll find this beer bottled for sale in a store. Mayyyyybe at a pub local to the brewery (if you're lucky) and I don't believe this will a overly common drink to find anyway.

As an great lover of Real Ale (it may be my favourite thing after TFs) I love this and can't wait to try it!

Right, thats pretty weak. I think people outside of the UK might think that the beers on tap are crazy strong, far from it, craft beers in the US for eg seem a bit stronger on average, I think the culture in the UK is drink quite weak beer but lots of it!

I found it distasteful that Hasbro would pin Michael Bay to a franchise geared mainly towards children to make a movie of sex puns and poor writing to sell toys. So, seems like no one is on their winning game these days.

Now that's funny.

--Hey, what's Hoptimus Prime turn into, anyway?
== Well, I'm guessing a thirty car pile-up with multiple fatalities.

Overheard in bar:

"One shall stand, One shall fall! CHUG! CHUG! CHUG! CHUG!"

It might perhaps be worth contacting the company to see if they have any promo material with the logo on it they could send out. Often these novelty beers have some kind of accompanying poster to go up in the pub, or beermats.
