David! Is he a real person? Do you know him?


I didn't even notice that the Twisted Tea had a Mainer on it! But there he was. Good ol' David R. from Biddeford.


Apparently anyone can be on the back of a Twisted Tea.

If you’ve ever held a can or bottle of Twisted Tea, then you know we love to show off our fans! We know you’ve never been shy about sharing how you enjoy Twisted Tea. And frankly, we love seeing those photos. That’s why we feature them on the back of every bottle and can! We’re always looking for the most creative (AKA Twisted!) photos. So show us how you keep it twisted with Twisted Tea. You never know, you might just end up being featured on our next Back Label!

Then the website tells you to be sure to read the rules before you submit a photo. Hmmm, that sounds like a warning to me. All the photos submitted MUST comply with these rules. There's one rule that caught my attention:

  • Depict people a minimum of 25 years old, substantiated by proper identification, and should reasonably appear to be over 21 years of age
  • Not depict the act of drinking
  • Not portray, encourage, or condone drunk driving
  • Not depict situations where Twisted Tea is being consumed excessively, in an irresponsible way, or in any way illegally.
  • Not portray persons in a state of intoxication or in any way suggest that intoxication is acceptable conduct.
  • Not portray or imply illegal activity of any kind.
  • Not portray sexual passion, promiscuity, or any other amorous activity.
  • Not employ any symbol, gesture, or cartoon character that is intended to appeal primarily to persons below the legal purchase age.
  • Not employ any entertainment figure or group that is intended to appeal primarily to persons below the legal purchase age.
  • Not depict Santa Claus. ←

  • Not associate or portray Twisted Tea drinking before or during activities which require a high degree of alertness or coordination.
  • Not contain any lewd or indecent language or images.
  • Not employ religion or religious themes.
  • Not disparage competing alcoholic beverages.
  • Depict retail outlets as well kept and respectable establishments.
  • Not show littering or otherwise improper disposal of Twisted Tea containers, unless the scenes are used clearly to promote anti-littering and/or recycling.
  • Do not show any trademarks or copyrights other than Twisted Tea trademarks or copyrights.

I get most of those rules. But Santa Claus? Is it because he's a Bud Lime kinda guy? Hey David R., how's life been since being on the back of a Twisted Tea?
