New Canadian brewery launches Trump-themed beer

A  craft brewery opening this summer in Canada plans to make beer great again, so they say.

Northern Maverick Brewing Company, based in Toronto, said in a news release that its first beer will be called “Fake News Ale,” complete with a caricature version of President Donald Trump.

The company said that the beverage will “offer a respite from the bleak political developments of late” and that it “lends itself to long discussions [about] world events with friends.”

“With tongue firmly in cheek, the beer was found to pair well with small hands, striking comb-overs, huge egos and all things Mexican,” the news release said, according to Global News.


The company also said that 5 percent of the beer’s sales will be used to help Americans “reverse a questionable policy” — though they haven’t decided yet where to send the money. They plan to have a vote on their website where users can vote on where the funds should go.

Fake News Ale will be available to order at the 11,000-square-foot brewery, in the brewery’s attached store, and through direct delivery throughout Ontario.

Northern Maverick Brewing Company issued a caveat for all those who want to try their new summer ale: “Clearly, no American president has endorsed this beer.”
