Buzz Beer

How many Drew Carey Show fans are out there? Not owning to the fact that he and I do have similarities in apperance (expect for the crew cut), this show and Drew Carey himself are among of my favourites on television. Among the many funny anecdotes and running jokes in this brillant comedy series, lies the total genuis idea of Buzz Beer. Buzz Beer was invented by the makers of the show (meaning Carey) - a Microbrewery beer first seen on episode No. 22 "Buzz Beer" (5/8/96) on the sitcom. When Drew Carey's department store (Winferd Lauder) looked like it might be bought out by a Dutch company, he began brewing beer as a sideline to made extra money. He called his brew "Buzz Beer" - a coffee-flavored beverage (that cracked me up)- and placed it for sale around the Cleveland area especially at the Warsaw Tavern where Drew hung out. Other partners in the Buzz Beer venture included Drew's close friends Lewis Kiniski (Ryan Stiles), Oswald Harvey (Dietrich Bader) and Kate O'Brien (Christa Miller).

Initially they manufactured & bottled the coffee flavoured beer in Drew's garage but the brewery was moved to Lewis and Oswald's house. Eeach bottle of Buzz Beer contains 12 fluid oz (355ml) of beverage. The recipe for Buzz Beer is listed on its label: "Brewed from nature's choicest Grain, Malt, Hops Yeats, coffee bean and water." The word "Buzz" not only means that Buzz Beer gives you a "Buzz" when you drink it, but also that it's the beer everyone's talking in "What's the buzz?"

Motto & Mission Statement :
The motto of Buzz Beer is "Stay up and get drunk all over again!".
Drew once jokingly noted that the original motto was going to be "This doesn't suck."
The mission statement that the initial four members decided on was 4 Friends, 4 Ever, 4 Beer.
