Anyone for a U-beer?

U-beerDon't know if you've noticed or not, but the official Midnight Sun masthead (the logo near the top of the screen) has changed.

Midnight Sun's signature drink is no longer a Moon-tini (a martini garnished with a slice of moon). It is now a U-beer (a beer served in a large letter U).

Several surveys and focus groups all rigorously endorsed the new logo. The general sense was that "Sam Sessa is more of a beer guy than a cocktail guy."

Midnight Sun's online staff subsequently sprung into action. And we are all better for it. Effective immediately, Midnight Sun will officially endorse any bar which serves U-beers.

Babe, it's still a Moontini on my screen.

i think you're gonna need one of those beer sticks you were talking about a couple weeks ago for that. you could never set it down.

Can you put a moon beer in a beer bong? Sign me up!

I think your masthead should have some kind of homage to the still kidnapped Homer.

The strike team is assembled and waiting for the order.

This is a blow to civilized folk everywhere. But I'll keep posting comments as a voice for my disenfranchised cocktail-swilling brothers.

We're couth like vermouth, b****ez.
