A Brooklyn, N.Y., brewery has been told by a federal agency that it must stop sales of its Hop Obama ale. Said the owner of Sixpoint Craft Ales brewery:
“The crazy thing is, the federal government, it approved this brand when many people didn’t know who Barack Obama was. Once he got elected, they tried to put a stop to it.”
The federal Tax and Trade Bureau said it is enforcing a rule about selling beer named after someone who hasn’t endorsed the product.
We all know Obama is a beer supporter; The Thirsty Beagle says the feds should let this one ride.
