If Trump’s presidency wasn’t enough to encourage Americans to cross the border, Canada’s comforting new beer will probably will do the trick.
On Monday, in attempt to #MakeBeerGreatAgain, Northern Maverick a lighthearted Toronto craft brewer who clearly understands our pain announced it’s launching a special ale that’ll make the rest pale in comparison: “Fake News Ale.”
The spread of fake news has been on a devastating rise since the start of the 2016 election and, though we’re all doing our best to fight it, Canada thinks maybe it’s time we kick back, relax and enjoy a cold one.
While Northern Maverick made it clear in a press release that “no American president has endorsed this beer,” the drink features a stunning photo of Trump on the cans and the brewery trolls him and his administration with one of the cheekiest ale descriptions of all time.
“Our ale pairs well with: small hands, striking comb overs, HUUUGEegos and all things Mexican.”
“We stand in solidarity with our American neighbors in their time of need for beer,” the brewery added.
The ale is the first in a charitable line of beers that will be available in Maverick’s Bathurst brewery or through its onsite beer shop or direct delivery in Ontario.
So basically, we should all go to Canada because we deserve this.
Northern Maverick is even offering to donate five percent of the proceeds of every can of “Fake News Ale” sold to “help reverse a questionable policy,” which can be voted on through the site.
What will the next political pint be? A nice Alternative Facts Lager? A Bowling Green Brew, perhaps? Whatever it may be, don’t forget to pour one out for your friendly neighborhood newsrooms.
