Quick, how many beer brands from movies and TV can you name? There are more than you might think.

This list has twenty of them. Remember these?
8. Heisler Beer, Bionic Woman, Bones, Burn Notice, CSI, Desperate Housewives, Dollhouse,Happy Endings, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, My Name Is Earl, New Girl, Superbad, The Shield, Training Day, Weeds, Workaholics

18. Schraderbrau, Breaking Bad
