Can You Buy Duff Beer !!TOP!!

Duff Beer is a brand of beer that originated as a fictional beverage on the animated series The Simpsons. Beers using the Duff branding have been brewed in a number of countries, resulting in legal battles with varying results. An official version of the beer is sold in three variations near the Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios. In 2015, 20th Century Fox, producer of The Simpsons, began selling licensed Duff beer in Chile, with a view to driving out brandjacking.[1][2]

The beer's slogan is "Can't Get Enough of That Wonderful Duff", though there are others. In the season four episode, "Duffless", parking lot signs at the Duff brewery have the slogans "It's Always Time For Duff" and "Now Leaving Duff Country". In the first season episode, "Homer's Odyssey", Duff is described as "The beer that makes the days fly by".

Their spokesperson is Duffman, a parody of Budweiser's 1970s-era mascot Bud Man. He is a muscular, bleach-blond, well-tanned man with whitened teeth who wears a blue leotard and cape, red Duff Beer ballcap, mirror sunglasses, and a utility belt full of cans of Duff Beer. He speaks in a loud and overly-enthusiastic staccato voice (like a radio DJ or beer commercial pitchman) and does a lot of exaggerated physical movements like a male exotic dancer - like dancing in place, groin-thrusting, hip shaking, and rubbing his buttocks with a towel. There are apparently many identical Duffmen; however, like mall Santas they never appear at the same place at the same time (so as to not disillusion the kids). One retired Duffman in Alcoholics Anonymous referred to himself as "Barry Duffman", indicating that he had to assume the identity of Duffman as part of the job. Some of the actors who play him have actually died (presumably from alcohol-related causes); their demise was never acknowledged because the character of Duffman is unaging and immortal. At public appearances he is often flanked by a random pair of beautiful, scantily-clad women who act as arm-candy, backup dancers, and assistants.

While Duff Beer comes in several varieties, it is revealed on a Duff Brewery tour in "Duffless" that regular Duff, Duff Light, and Duff Dry are the same beer, although Homer and Barney apparently remain oblivious to the fact. A tasting room contains Duff Dark beer and Duff Gummy Beers candy; it also contains several varieties that Barney stated they had not tried yet, including "Raspberry Duff", "Lady Duff" and "Tartar Control Duff".[4]

In "Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk", Homer celebrates a recent minor stock windfall by ordering a bottle of Henry K. Duff's Private Reserve, which is implied to be more costly and of better quality, and which is an apparent spoof of Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve,[8] as well as alluding to Hendrik Doeff, the Dutch commissioner of the Dejima trading outpost, who first introduced beer to Japan.

In the season 21 episode "To Surveil With Love", Duffman makes a giveaway of Duff advertising in Moe's bar while "Get Ready For This" by 2 Unlimited plays on the background, suggesting this might be the theme song for the beer brand or for the character.

In the same episode, there is also a direct parody of the "It's a Small World" attraction at Disney parks. In the cartoon, the boats float on a brown liquid as animatronic children sing "Duff beer for me, Duff beer for you, I'll have a Duff, You have one, too," over and over again. Lisa drinks the liquid in the ride on a dare from Bart, and she freaks out from its hallucinogenic properties.

There has been speculation that the name was inspired by one-syllable beer names in the United States (such as "Bud"), and The Simpsons' writers had found the name humorous.[9] However, longtime Simpsons animator, producer, and director David Silverman stated in 2012 that Groening named the beer "Duff" simply for the convenient rhyme in the slogan "Can't Get Enough of that Wonderful Duff".[10] In 2018, writer/producer Mike Reiss stated Jay Kogen came up with the name.[11]

In an excerpt from his autobiography, Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan claimed that the beer was named after him as the writers were fans of the band and he was known for his extreme alcohol consumption and was popularly called "The King of Beers".[12] This is a claim Simpsons creator Matt Groening has called "absurd".[13] In response McKagan has stated that he thought it was common knowledge and uncontroversial that he was the origin of the name, and jokingly called assertions to the contrary "absurd."[14] Reiss again denied the connection in 2018, stating, "No, it was not named after Duff McKagan ... We'd never heard of this guy. Have you? ... It's a cute fake story that McKagan tells."[11]

Matt Groening has stated that he will not license the Duff trademark to brew an actual beer, over concern that it would encourage children to drink.[16] However, there have been a few notable cases of individual companies and persons who have used the term "Duff Beer" with varying success.

Twentieth Century Fox had itself been granted a CTM for the logo "Duff BEER" for use in several categories of non-beer merchandise.[25] Fox had applied for the CTM in 1999, but opposition from the makers of "Mac Duff's"-branded wine and spirits delayed the grant till 2006.[25] Fox's CTM was cancelled by the OHIM in 2011,[25] following a 2010 ruling by the Brussels Commercial Court that a "Beer" logo applied exclusively to non-beer merchandise was misleading.[26]

Daleside Brewery in England makes a beer called Duff.[29] Duff Beer UG's beer is distributed in the United Kingdom as "The Legendary Duff Beer".[30] While news reports of its 2011 introduction mentioned The Simpsons,[31] its own website does not, although it refers to its "iconic packaging" and states "The product has certainly fulfilled its namesake in becoming a modern day legend".[30]

In the mid 1990s, the Lion Nathan brewery in Australia produced a beer called Duff, which resulted in 20th Century Fox bringing legal action against the company.[9] The product was ordered to be pulled from the shelves and destroyed because of the likely association in public mind between the Simpsons brand and characters and Lion Nathan's product, though the manufacturer did not use any Simpsons characters or the Simpsons Duff Beer design.[22] This version of the beer became a collectors' item, with one case selling for US$13,000.[32]

Partially due to unauthorized Duff beer in the country, Fox announced plans to sell official Duff beer in Chile starting in early 2016, with plans to expand elsewhere in South America and into Europe. Producing a real Duff beer will allow Fox stronger trademark protections of the Duff name; as a fictional product, it is more susceptible to piracy.[1]

In 2006, Rodrigo Contreras, from Guadalajara, Mexico created a business, with the purpose of selling Duff beer. He managed to register the "Duff" trademark in Mexico, as well as the domain name Contreras designed the bottle to be identical to the one portrayed on The Simpsons. The bottle can be seen at his website. The beer is currently available at a few bars, but Contreras has stated his intention of selling it at convenience stores and even exporting it to the United States.[36]

This case has been featured on several Mexican newspapers and magazines, but most of them focus on the novelty the beer represents, rather than the legal implications of it. The "Duff" trademark was not registered in Mexico before Contreras registered it; however, Mexican intellectual property law recognizes the concept of "brand notoriety", which states that if any brand is well known by a specific section of the consumers or the industry due to the commercial activities or advertisement done by its owners, they have the right to claim the ownership of the trademark.[37]

Duff Beer UG's beer was introduced into France in 2011, though with limited success.[40] Since French television has a strict prohibition on advertising and product placement of alcohol, subsequent broadcasts of The Simpsons have blurred the Duff logo on screen.[40] The name is not censored on the soundtrack, but Duffman was redubbed "Uffman".[40]

If the Simpsons was an actual TV show, walking into Moe's Tavern would be the equivalent of walking onto the TV set. The attention to detail is amazing. They have a love tester in the corner right next to the giant statue of Barney drinking a beer. Simpsons fans will absolutely love stopping by here, even if its just to get out of the sun, cool off and watch some Simpsons moments on TV. The Duff beer was nice and cold and it reminded me of a Coors light. Nothing special, but it can hit the spot. We tried a Flaming Moe as well, and while they're a bit pricey, as a Simpsons fan, it was worth it just for the experience to watch smoke come pouring off your glass as you drink what is basically orange soda. You are paying more for the souvenir cup than the drink itself. There are plenty of spots at the bar and tables along the edges and even the "pool table" is completly plexiglassed over, turning it into a usable seating area for guests.Moe's also connects to the Simpsons fast food boulevard where you can sample everything from Salads to a Krusty Burger. If you're fan of the show, this is not to be missed. Even if you're not a huge Simpsons fan, don't skip this - you'll love the attention to detail. Fan Tip: - Don't miss the Kwik-E-Mart gift shop right next door. You can pick up your "Bort" key chain or shot glasses there before they run out like they do in the Duff Gardens episode.

I love this place! It is an awesome atmosphere that feels totally real. My favorite part is the phone that rings with Bart on the other end prank calling whoever answers. It is such a wonderful touch to the bar!The only issue I had is that I have very specific food allergies (food dyes in particular) which make ordering things at places like Universal - where they don't like to reveal their ingredients - difficult. Every time I go, I ask what is in the specific item (like a Flaming Moe) and the bartenders are reluctant to respond. After I explain why I want to know (not to replicate it at my very own, second rate Universal Studios CT where I live) they are usually happy to check if my particular allergen is in the item. This visit, the bartender refused to tell me if it was safe for me to drink. I asked to see a manager but they 'couldn't find one'. Again, I understand their fear of the copy-cats out there but for safety reasons, I thought it was a strange response. I personally work at a restaurant with proprietary blends of items and if a guest needs to know something for an allergy reason, we do everything in our power to look it up without revealing the ingredients. I guess I'll have to settle for Duff beer instead.All that said, this place was totally fun and I still use my Duff Beer souvenir (plastic) glass regularly! 041b061a72
