Sitting barside in Moe’s Tavern might be out of the realm of reality for fans of the Simpsons but now they can at least sip on Homer’s tipple of choice, Duff Beer.
The fictional bevvie has been transformed from cartoon to reality and is set for international release in the coming months.
The first pints of the beer, previously only enjoyed exclusively in Springfield, went on sale in Universal Studios in Hollywood and Orlando last week.
Now Twentieth Century Fox plan to release the brew in throughout Europe and the US in the coming months.
Speaking to the Irish Sun, Consumer Products president for the company Jeffery Godsick said: “You will enjoy it at home and eventually at bars. We are treating this as real beer, not a novelty.”
In the show, Duff is often enjoyed by Homer and his colleagues Lenny and Carl as well as the town’s problem drinker Barney Gumble who “can’t get enough of that wonderful Duff.”
The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has previously expressed his worry that the show might promote drinking, especially as much of The Simpsons audience are children.
The world let out a collective cry of 'doh!' this morning with news that the voice of Mr Burns, Principal Skinner and Ned Flanders is to quit the Simpsons. Veteran actor and comedian Harry Shearer took to Twitter to announce he would not be returning to the long-running animated series, after contractual talks broke down.
