Amstel Light: Not Big on the Whole 'Literacy' Thing


Amstel Light may have taught us properly how to spell "beer" in Dutch, but this is definitely not how you spell "damn." Unless you're referring to what beavers make, or are trying to be clever with your city of origin. But really, did bad puns ever get a brand anywhere good?

Also, I'm digging how the YouTube video description reads "Tradition since 18070." I didn't even realize we'd passed that year yet.

dam is referring to a place in amsterdam. You're right about the spelling. I think it supposed to be a joke. However, I don't find it funny..It is damn good beer though.

in english, a bier is a slab you put corpses on before burying them

So it's a slab that holds back water? And, there's only one? At least it's good.

Really, you didn't get that they were trying to be clever? It's not a good clever, but gee, I'd think it's pretty obvious to anyone...

One dam lie: that it is brewed in Amsterdam.
