Symphony in Beer

You know, some things just don’t get old, especially when it involves the combination of two of my favorite things:  orchestras and beer.

Here’s a real 2007 Australian commercial for Victoria Bitter beer starring the Melbourne Symphony and Orchestra Victoria (playing as the “Victoria Bitter Orchestra”) in a performance of “The VB Stubby Symphony.”  Also below is an equally amusing video showing a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the commercial.

Kudos to the orchestras and to VB for making this happen.  Other possible combos:

  • The San Francisco Symphony and Bear Republic Brewery
  • The Los Angeles Philharmonic and Sanford Winery
  • The Louisville Orchestra and Woodford Reserve bourbon (perhaps this will be more appropriate now that they’re coming out of bankruptcy)
