Breweries know better than anyone else that revenge is best served cold. On Tuesday, the Sun King Brewing in Indianapolis made it's loyalties to the Colts known when it released over 20,000 cans of beer with "Tom Brady Sux" stamped onto the aluminum dome, right under the expiration date. Sun King Brewing blamed the stamp on a rogue employee they called "Biscuit."
Blue Hills Brewery in Canton, Massachusetts, did not let Biscuit's punch go unanswered, and shot back with its own version of the expiration stamp, reading "A. Luck Sux." (We think a "45-7" stamp for the 2015 AFC Championship win may have been a little more creative.) But Colorado's brewery scene seems to have the Colts fans' backs. On Friday morning, Oskar Blues Brewery, out of Longmont, Colorado (the heart of Broncos and Peyton Manning land) tweeted a picture of an IPA beer can with a born-on date stamp on the bottom reading: "Nice Job, Biscuit!" The tweet read, "We Gotcher back #biscuit"
This latest feud isn't the fist time that beer vessels have been used to make a statement. Here are our favorite beers brewed, named, or labeled in spite.
FU Brett Favre, Surly Brewing Company, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota
This American Wild Ale may be retired now, but it was a heavy hitter for Vikings fans who couldn't stand the Packers quarterback. Ironically, it was renamed Brett Favre MVP in 2009 when he signed with the Vikings.
Chinga tu Pelo, 5 Rabbit Cerveceria, Chicago, Illinois
Chicago's Latino-owned brewery renamed its summer golden ale Chinga Tu Pelo, which translates directly to "Fuck Your Hair," after Donald Trump called Mexican immigrants "rapists" and drug dealers. After the comments, the brewery announced it is going to stop making beer for Trump Tower's Rebar, and insulted the orange-haired politician by re-christening the leftovers.
Cecil's Revenge, Fat Cat Pub, Norwich, United Kingdom
Following the shooting of Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe by the now-infamous trophy hunter/dentist, the Fat Cat Pub named their latest 5.6% hoppy draught beer "Cecil's Revenge," to honor and raise a glass to their fellow (late) fat cat.
Lord Simcoe's Revenge, Forked River Brewing, Ontario, Canada
This 7.5-percent ABV IPA, pays homage to the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada and controversial founder of London (Canada), John Graves Simcoe. Reprimanded by his superiors for his forward views, he was dismissed from Canada and was appointed commander-in-chief of India, but he died before he could assume the post. Forked River decided to honor Simcoe with an IPA blended with North American hops.
