@TsuyoshiIto: Well what I was getting at was that it's commonly used in copy righting, such as blog titles, catch phrases on commercials, book titles, slogans etc. Pretty much all nouns with symbolic meaning would do, such as "お花畑な", "フランスな", "OLな" etc. IMO

@TsuyoshiIto: If you search for "ビールな毎日" on google, you get a lot of results?

@Gradius: No it's not a dialect, it's a specific attempt by copy writers to sound a bit unnatural in order to make the impression stronger. The point is that there is no ordinaryly accepted concept of "degree of beer" or "degree of budo" yet the speaker creates this concept so to create a strong impression to the listener that indeed アサヒビール is the best beer of all (btw IMO the best beer in Japan is サントリー).

@TsuyoshiIto: I guess it depends on how you define incorrectness. IMO it is common enough that people will "get" the intention; after all, languages evolve.. So hence I described it as "possible". But yeah it's only pseudo valid under this special context, I agree.

@TsuyoshiIto I could imagine a commercial going "スーパードライが一番ビールです" or "一番ビールなスーパードライ" as a copy, which purposely uses atypical grammar to make a stronger impression (similar to 倒置法 e.g. 今すぐ飲みたい、スーパドライ). (Now I feel like an Asahi sales person...)
