A.P. Ticker, the silver-maned anchor of Scrapple.TV’s daily news dispatches, is no stranger to beer. According to his bio, he’s famously bent elbows with everyone from Fidel Castro and John Glenn to Gandhi and Amy Winehouse. It’s rumored that he poured Betty Ford her last tipple, which might explain why he’s the only journalist ever to be banned from the White House for life. But it’s not just any beer that quenches the thirst and steadies the nerves of America’s last honest newsman. No, he only drinks the good stuff, like Troegs, Sly Fox and Yards. And as a champion of local and craft brews, he’s squealing mad about AB InBev’s recent acquisition of Philly’s 215 area code in today’s “Piggie of the Week” segment. Check the clip straight ahead.
