It’s a sad day for Australian Duff Beer lovers - the popular drink is being pulled from our shelves. 

Springfield’s favourite beverage made it’s way to our shores back in May but it’s now been found to be in breach of the Alcohol Beverages Advertising Code.

Basically they’re worried that it’s association with The Simpsons will make it attractive to young kids.

A board representing the code released the following statement:

"The association of The Simpsons with the product name and packaging is so strongly entrenched in Australian popular culture that the name and packaging will draw the attention of under 18 year olds. Measures to market the product without references to The Simpsons characters or images cannot be effective to overcome the strong and evident appeal of the product material to underage persons."

"Through its creation and subsequent promotion in The Simpsons, there is no doubt that Duff Beer is going to be attractive to children and young people."

Cue one of the most infamous Simpsons quotes ever: “Oh, won't somebody PLEASE think of the children?!”

While production has stopped, retailers are allowed to sell their remaining shelf stock so if you’re quick, you may still be able get your hands on some Duff before it completely disappears.
