Ultra Right beer with Trump’s face on the can sells out immediately
The Conservative Dad’s Ultra Right Beer has revealed “record-breaking” sales on a beer can featuring Donald Trump’s face.
The US beer company, which claims to be “woke free” reported via Fox Business that its limited edition beer, named Conservative Dad’s Revenge, made half a million dollars in just 12 hours after releasing a can that featured a the former president’s mugshot image.
The photograph of Trump, which is understood to be the first ever mugshot of a former president, was taken in August after Trump was indicted in Georgia on 13 charges related to alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state.
The move to add the image to a can of beer came shortly after the mugshot was shared online and went viral and has been regarded as a response in opposition to the charges made against Trump, who is seeking re-election in 2024.
Conservative Dad’s Ultra Right Beer CEO Seth Weathers told reporters that the beer sales of the limited edition brew were equivalent to over five tractor loads of cans and described its popularity as “the most sought-after collector beer can in American history”.
Weathers said: “We knew people would go wild over these collector cans, but we had no idea the response would be this crazy.”
Weathers went on to predict that in total the sales will likely top US$2m and said that 10% of sales from the beer will be donated to the legal defense of the Georgia Republican Party and the David Shafer Legal Defense Fund.
Weathers added: “Sales have poured in from the moment we launched. With over US$1 million in beer and merchandise sales, we’ve raised over US$50,000 for the legal defense of the Georgia Trump electors and the Georgia Republican Party. Conservative Dad’s Ultra Right Beer puts our money where our mouth is – we’re doing our part to fight back against the unjust persecution of American patriots.”
The Ultra Right beer brand, which was introduced in April following the boycott of Bud Light, surpassed US$1 million in sales within its first two weeks of being launched.
