The Beer Archives: Viking Honey Pale Ale, August 2008

Let’s get the obvious thing out of the way first: Yes, that’s Brigitte Nielsen’s body stolen from the 1985 Red Sonja poster. I freely admit it and have no regrets. Couldn’t resist. The backdrop is from the packaging of a 1960s toy rocket. The “Untamed! Unashamed!” tagline comes from some bad B-movie poster; it may have been “Women of the Prehistoric Planet.” I’m not entirely sure. At any rate, everything is ripped off. So people loved it, naturally.

That’s my friend’s face, as you may have guessed. She was involved in brewing this particular beer, so of course I needed to give her credit. I’m generally not this blatant about wholesale image thievery, but I figured this was all in good fun. Mea culpa.
