We all know about fake clothing and electronics, so it can be hard to imagine that the counterfeit industry has even targeted beer. Unfortunately beer-lovers, it’s true! Watch our amusing video below, and keep reading to learn what you can do if you find yourself with a fake six pack.
What Inspired the Video and is it About?
As we already touched on, fake beers are now a reality. It isn’t a small problem either. A simple Google search will turn up a number of news stories on the matter. For example, in early January, 2019, two men were charged with selling fake SP beer in Papua New Guinea. There are even videos which show how counterfeit beer are produced, like this one about fake Heineken beer.
So, to highlight the problem to those unaware about it, we decided to make an amusing video about it. The video shows a man enjoying a Corona beer at a bar. His friend comes over to him, and says that he can’t stand Corona after ordering it online and trying it. He even goes as far as to say that “It’s disgusting and even made me sick!” and offers him the rest of them. The man at the bar tries a sip of it and spits it out, exclaiming, “It’s definitely not Corona! It’s a fake!”
What Can You Do if You Find Yourself in a Similar Situation?
If you watched the video, you’ll know that the man who bought the fake Corona reported them on a special platform. That’s our simplyBrand platform, which allows people to report online fakes in return for cryptocurrency. All you have to do is sign up on the simplyBrandplatform as a validator, and report any fakes you find. After you submit your report you’ll receive simplyBrand’s cryptocurrency, SBA, as a reward for your efforts.

Some Facts About Fake Alcohol
Counterfeit alcohol costs the global drinks industry more than US $3 billion a year, according to a report by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). FoodBev highlights that Interpol and Europol seized 26.4 million litres of counterfeit alcohol and food, in just one year, which amounted to an estimated €230 million worth of counterfeit goods.
So if you are thinking of buying fake beer or other alcohol, think again. You don’t want to risk your health to save a couple of dollars. What’s more, it won’t taste good at all! But if you do end up purchasing a fake product online, keep in mind that you can report it on simplyBrand. At least you’ll earn some crypto, if nothing else!
