Brewery launches anti-Donald Trump beer range
A US brewery has launched a line of anti-Donald Trump beers entitled “Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote Drumpf”.
The Dock Street Brewery in Philadelphia announced the range via its website, using the name “Drumpf” as a reference to political comedian John Oliver’s popular “Make Donald Drumpf Again” meme. Trump’s family anglicized their German surname’s spelling after immigrating to the United States.
“Beer has always, throughout history, been a key ingredient in the recipe for revolutionary ideas”, the brewer said. “In that spirit, we’re brewing this series to declare our disdain for Drumpf, and to extend a little nod of solidarity to our friends, fans and neighbors that also believe the country deserves better representation – on a national and international platform – in the race to be Commander in Chief. We just can’t wrap our well-coiffed heads around a candidate who encourages his supporters to attack protesters at his rallies, wants to limit access to the U.S. based on religion, and flagrantly manipulates facts and data.”
The first beer in its “Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote Drumpf” series will be the 4.5% abv Short-Fingered Stout, which it describes as “a bitter and delusional stout with an airy, light-colored head atop a so-so body.”
The brewery has not yet confirmed when the beer will be released.
