    I wonder how long it took them to assemble this skit. Genius.

    Ironically only one kinda-sorta craft brewery was featured in the bit. There are literally thousands of fun beer names that could make a nice narrative if your writers would have gone on Beer Advocate or Untapped (ie. google).

    Kudos to the staff that strung together hilarious messages using commercial beer names. Brilliant.

    It's suddenly as if Stephen has a bunch of 18 year old frat boys writing for him/ his show.

    Well, all of the beers you advertised are still available. Seems odd, this affects small craft brews. The same small craft brews taking more share of market over recent years, and has minimal recourse on big beer.
