Duff Beer, our favorite fictitious brew enjoyed by our favorite fictitious Simpsons character, is making the rounds in several bars in Latin America. Duff is apparently available in Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Chile.
The lager has the same logo as the brew that Homer Simpson guzzles at Moe’s. In South America, the beer’s motto is “Yes it does exist!” But according to The Miami Herald, nobody seems to be willing to discuss Springfield’s finest.
The makers of Duff in South America say they aren’t allowed to talk to the U.S. media. Duff Mexico — which started the Latin American trend — would not respond to interview requests. And 20th Century Fox, which owns the rights to -Simpsons, said it would not comment on the story and would not say if it has a licensing agreement with any of the Duff producers.
Here in the U.S., we’ve wanted to see actual Duff on actual shelves for, oh, I dunno, 22 years. But according to several reports, Simpsons creator Matt Groening fears that bringing Duff into the real world would be tantamount to pushing alcohol on minors.
So we get Duff Energy Drink while Latin America gets Duff beer. At least there is Ebay.

I’ve been watching the Simpson’s for 21 years now. In fact, if you were born when it premiered, you’d be of legal drinking age now. I think it’s safe to finally turn our favorite fictional beer into the real deal.
