When the world ends, what beer will you be drinking?

A new ad for Stevens Point Brewery's Black Ale conceived by Chicago-based production company Rascals & Rogues imagines the city on the verge of an apocalypse.

Unsurprisingly, the on-screen Chicagoans respond to the doomsday scenes that include some glaringly NATO summit-esque police standoffs by cracking open a cold one.

While seeing our fair city in turmoil puts us a little on edge, we love the concept, and think they succeeded in making Chicago look as glam as it did when it was Gotham.
