Charlize Theron Has Excellent Taste in Beer

In a world where Spike Lee has his own variety of Absolut and Will Ferrell devotedly shills for Old Milwaukee, it's important to point out when the intersection of celebrities and booze actually results in something encouraging. Take Charlize Theron, who was photographed Sunday carrying some of America's finest craft beer to a Super Bowl party. A whole case of it.

The Delaware brewery Dogfish Head is renowned far and wide for its IPAs, particularly the 60-minute variety of which Theron rocked over the weekend. At 6 percent ABV, it is the brewery's smoothest, least potent IPA; the 90-minute and 120-minute versions top out around 9 percent and 20 percent, each named after the length of the brew's sustained boil and continuous hopping. Which may not mean anything to non-beer enthusiasts, but trust me: After having to sit through five minutes of Super Bowl ads for something called "Bud Light Platinum," little is as refreshing to a connoisseur as seeing an A-list, Oscar-winning actress treat our biggest sporting event as the stepping-up opportunity that it is.

Anyway, Theron should be commended, and may all of Hollywood take note. Also: I will totally lend my likeness out to any brewer needing a little push on upcoming game days. Inquire within. I'm looking at you, Ommegang. Ahem.

  • Charlize Theron and beer. Sounds like the perfect
    combination to me! Having Theron in commercials
    makes a LOT more sense than some miniaturized
    ex-coach, doesn't it?
    I don't think ads are legally allowed to show somebody
    actually drinking, but wouldn't Charlize Theron look
    delightful with a frothy upper lip? True ales or lagers ...none of that "lite" beer. QAPLA for the Frothy Head!!

    We've discovered something that makes Charlize Theron seem MORE awesome? My head just exploded.

    Doghead?!?! F*ck that Sh!t!!

  • Henry VIII says:

    It's not fair- she's gorgeous, insanely talented, articulate, AND has a great taste in beer. Goddess on earth, ya'll!

  • MartiniShark says:

    That AND a case of Belvedere!! With no metrosexual Details model or personal assistant to tote it for her! Put a few pounds of bacon-wrapped Kobe in her satchel and a white chocolate fountain in the bedroom and this is straight out of my therapist- endorsed "happy place!

      Fail. The first photo is grainy as fuck and distorts her face with all that noise, you can't really tell what's going on. Maybe she was just out of the gym or something. The second is from a movie "Monster", in which she had "ugly" makeup and gained 30 pounds for the role.
      Is this all you got? Keep trying, pal.

  • Max Renn says:

    She could be drinking two-buck chuck and I'd still love her.

  • wildeyed says:

    You wanna tell me why the fuck I should know what "IPA" is without you providing a definition within the article? Jeezus, if you're writing for yourself buy a diary.

  • 2+2=5 says:

    She is also super strong, easily carrying whole case of beer, case of vodka, and another package of, what seems like, some sort of scotch, I think. And all that when dressed up so cute, on high heels and without breaking a sweat or ruining her hairdo (look for additional pictures of this event on the net).

    • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

      It did occur to me that perhaps she just had some snacks or something packed in a Dogfish Head box, like an empty case you'd get at BevMo -- where she may have bought the vodka? But it is far more refreshing to imagine A) her toting all this booze at once and B) that she only enjoys the good stuff.

      • 2+2=5 says:

        Whatever she holds, she still looks just adorable.

      • Andrea says:

        I agree. It looks like she's just using that box to hold a bunch of other things. There's another image in the set that looks like it could confirm that. Sad 🙁 Dogfish Head rules.

  • sigher says:

    Personally, I still her finest 'kick-back' moment was her custom-built 'apple pot pipe' photo from a few years ago.
    Does she listen to Danny Brown too? Please?
