Inky Beer Factoid: January 14


On this day in 1990, the longest-running television show in history, The Simpsons, premiered on FOX.  On the show, Homer Simpson’s beer of choice is called Duff Beer, a cheap, commercialized brew.  This beer was once fictional, but many have made it a real brand in other countries without permission from show creator, Matt Groening.  Many on-going battles for the brand still go on today.  In fact, Groening stated that he will not license the trademark in to a Duff Beer brand in fear of attracting children to drink.
