With the notoriety of brands coming under fire regarding their involvement with this year's Winter Olympics, one brand have laid their opinions right out on the line with a unique two fingers to Putin. Expecting no less from indie craft beer brand Brewdog, they this week unveiled a 'Hello, My Name is Vladimir' brew and #NotForGays hashtag. Rustled up with what they say are oh so sexually potent Limonnik berries, the 'Hello, My Name is Vladimir' tipple is by no means a homage to the man; Instead, a tasty jab at the the latest in baffling Olympic legislations.
In a statement about the beer, Brewdog have backed the tipple by the nature that their 'core beliefs are freedom of expression, freedom of speech and a dogged (no pun intended) passion for doing what we love'. Available at all participating branches, including our very own Brum bar, 50% of the proceeds from this bevvie will be donated to like-minded charities.
