Okay, so we’re a little late on this one, but better late than never. If you haven’t seen this bad boy yet, you’re in for a treat. It’s called the Beercade machine, and it was developed by the McKinney Ad Agency for Big Boss Brewing Company.
It’s an arcade machine, built with motion sensors, so when two cups are placed in the designated areas, gameplay begins. The game itself is based off of The Last Barfighter. Players choose between five characters, all named after one of Big Boss Brewing’s beers – Hell’s Belle, Bad Penny, Angry Angel, Blanco Diablo, and High Roller.
So in order to play, each contender must place a cup down, and work the old school buttons and joysticks to fight. The reward for the winner? You guessed it, a sample of Big Boss beer.
Not only is it something super rad to do at the bar, but it’s also an amazing promotional tool for Big Boss Brewing. Unfortunately, there’s only one of them out there, and Big Boss is using the machine solely for promotions. So, sadly, it seems as though the Beercade will not be in a town near you in the foreseeable future. We’ve got our fingers crossed, though, as we simply sit back and admire the genius behind the Beercade.
