New Git-R-Done beer named for comedian

Mon Jul 2, 11:19 AM ET

PAWNEE CITY, Neb. - A local microbrewery has launched a beer for one of America's most recognizable rednecks: Larry the Cable Guy.

Git-R-Done beer, named for the comedian's famous catchphrase, was launched Saturday by SchillingBridge Winery & MicroBrewery, from the small town where the 44-year-old actor-comedian grew up.

The owners of the small family winery say the light beer is made from high-quality ingredients with more "flavor and body" than popular corporate beers.

Mike Schilling, who runs the winery with his wife, Sharon, is confident Git-R-Done beer will appeal to the comedian's fan base.

"Rednecks love quality, too," he said.

Larry the Cable Guy has become popular through films, cable television and a standup tour. His latest movie, "Delta Farce," was released in May.

The Schillings proposed the new beer to the comedian, whose real name is Dan Whitney.

Sharon Schilling said Whitney visited the winery in July 2005 to accept the offer wearing a pair of shorts and a sleeveless camouflage shirt.

Whitney said he was dressed up because it was his wedding day, which was confirmed by his bride, Sharon Schilling said.

"He said, `Let's git-r-done,'" she said. "He made it sound so simple."

For some reason, the name "Git R Drunk" doesn't sound too appealing to me.

Git R Done just isn't as funny/popular/overused as it once was. Passing craze. Should have came out with it two years ago, at least.

You are referring to the same crowd that still loves "You might be a redneck" jokes.

I thought "Morning Constitutions" was pretty funny.

You might be a redneck if you drink a beer called Git R Drunk.

Not sure how a MicroBrew can make it cheap.

I was actually at a festival at the microbrew last weekend when they made the announcement. It was a lot of fun. We all got one of the first tastes of "get-r-done" beer. It was so-so. Some of their other beers were actually better IMO. Fun day all in all though. They have a winery there also. For the small town crowd I recommend going next year. They always have a couple comedians and a band or two.

"Rednecks love quality, too," he said.



Being in marketing I find this funny as hell,in fact if I were the agency on the ad campaign this would be my recommended slogan.

Git R Done beer....

because rednecks love quality too

I wish he would fall of the face of the earth.
He gives Nebraskans, (of all people) a bad reputation.

Jesus, there is no way that people are still amused by this. I see the success of Larry the Cable Guy as a sign of the apocolypse.
