A brand-new Toronto brewery wants to give President Trump something else irritating, Canadian, and hard to grab. This time, though, it’s a 16-ounce beer mocking the increasingly unpopular leader to the immediate south. Northern Maverick describes it as a session ale meant to facilitate easy drinking and “long discussions” of politics, but the brewery also explains it’s legitimately trying to do more than score easy advertising by making fun of the sitting U.S. president — 5 percent of sales are being set aside to “help reverse a questionable policy.” In true democratic form, which policy will be decided by popular vote; the brewery says that in the coming weeks, it will let people nominate a nonprofit or charitable group on its website, and the one that racks up the most votes will get the donation.
CLEARLY NO AMERICAN PRESIDENT HAS ENDORSED THIS BEER!
The Trump Beer, Fake News Ale
Created by Northern Maverick Brewing Company
Our Sessions-able ale pairs well with: small hands, striking comb overs, HUUUGE egos and all things Mexican.
We stand in solidarity with our American neighbours in their time of need for beer.
For each can sold of this beer we will donate 5 percent of sales (which we estimate at this point to be 20 to 25 percent of this beer's profits) to help reverse a questionable policy.
In a few weeks, voting will begin to determine which cause will receive the charitable donation.
