Breweries have traditionally spent a lot of time designing distinctive, elaborate labels, which is weird because it's not like people need a lot of encouragement to drink beer. Just look at that plain can Archie Bunker drank: he knew it's what's on the inside that matters, not the outside. Anyway, if you've spent a lot of time locked in a lonely stare with a vessel of suds, you'll have no trouble identifying the beers and brewers associated with these visual chasers. Congratulations?

Question: who's got three thumbs and wants more Trivial Eye? Answer: you after a grotesquely botched surgery.

Ummm - I thought these were all going to be beer labels. Weakly colored water doesn't count as beer.

It's times like this I realize just how much working in Beer & Wine sales has rubbed off on me.

1 - Guinness Extra Stout
2 - Deschutes Brewery
3 - Budweiser classic lager (though I will also argue that this is not beer)
4 - Peroni Brewery
5 - New Belgium Brewing Company (not exclusive to the Fat Tire variety)
6 - Stella Artois
7 - Samuel Adams (this is an old one, the first redesigned label after the original [which featured the right hand pointing down] -- this was the last "Stoic Sam" label before they moved to the "party patriot" smiling Sam designs)
8 - Miller High Life (again, not real beer)

In other words, you should have been writing this quiz, not me. Color me schooled!

Occupational hazard. Sometimes I feel like those brain cells should have been filled with more useful knowledge.

Though I've got to say, this label is my favorite. The original Sam was too morose and the current Sam looks like a frat boy I'd like to smack after a long day stocking cold cases.

"that familiar feeling of aggravation that so much of your mind is occupied by useless trivia."

YES.
