You know you're a Beer Geek when...

I like to watch me some TV and movies. Over the last year or so I've found myself obsessed with trying to identify the brand of beer people are drinking in my favorite celluloidal presentation.

Have you ever found yourself doing this?

Take for instance the movie Smart People with Ellen Page (Juno), Dennis Quaid,Thomas Haden Church and Sarah Jessica Parker. If you liked Juno you'll like this movie too. However, beer makes an appearance in this flick a few times and I couldn't ID them. I thought one was a Rolling Rock, but there was another green bottle with a metallic label of some kind. Can anyone from the Pittsburgh area (that's where the movie was set) tell me what the hell that beer was? Geneesee maybe?

Ya know... this would be a good little niche project/website for some diehard movie watching beer geek. Complie a list of every movie that's had beer in it... and what the beer was! BRILLIANT! So... who's game?

Awesome. I've had similar experiences myself, but I catch myself looking at tap handles in bar scenes. I did this recently with the new Batman movie - I caught myself giggling at a serious point because I could ID several tap handles (easily, too, since the Magic Hat #9 handle is so distinct!).
