Brewery makes beers inspired by Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau and Angela Merkel

A Ukranian brewery has made “sex symbol” and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau the poster-boy for its latest beer.

Brewed by Pravda in Lviv, “Magnum IPA” features a cartoon of Trudeau wearing boxing gloves adorned with a cannabis leaf.

Behind the PM, drawings of foreign minister Chrystia Freeland and late Cuban leader Fidel Castro can be seen, while the rainbow flag flies in the background.

The beer was made to praise the two Canadian politicians’ support for Ukraine against Vladimir Putin’s interference in the country.

The brewery’s website explains why Trudeau is so important to them, from his progressive policies to his plans to legalise cannabis in 2018.

“Since the beginning of the war in Eastern Ukraine, Trudeau actively supports the Ukrainian government and condemns Russia’s actions,” it says.

Pravda calls Trudeau a “sex symbol” adding that his progressive policies on LGBT rights, equality and the legalisation of cannabis make him the ideal poster-boy for their beer.

“Trudeau is known for his sympathy for coloured socks and marijuana, in addition to supporting the struggle for women’s rights, and the LGBT movement.”

“We really enjoy Justin Trudeau. He is a politician-freak who is changing the world for better and helping our country! The label is about his remarkable figure in world politics nowadays.”

“The fascinating fact is that Canadian government is gender equal: 15 men and 15 women.”

But the PM isn’t the only world leader to get a send-up from the brewery.

The new beer, which was launched last week, is the latest in a series of drinks produced by Pravda with politically erudite labels.

Angela Merkel is already the face of a wheat beer, while bottles honouring Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin are also in the pipeline.

Donald Trump himself has also made an appearance on the label of an ‘Imperial Mexican lager’ which was released earlier this year.

Teetotal Donald Trump is no stranger to the craft beer industry, with his policies sparking a wave of protest brews from independent microbreweries as well as Scottish beer giants Brewdog, which launched ‘Make Earth Great Again‘ last month to challenge the White House’s tepid response to climate change.
