Toronto craft brewer Northern Maverick launches “Fake News Ale”
Startup’s charitable Trump beer line will help “make beer great again.”
Northern Maverick, a Toronto brewery/restaurant gearing up for a summer launch, says in a release its Fake News Ale was developed to offer “a respite from the bleak political developments of late, an easy-drinking beer that lends itself to long discussions over world events with friends.
“The beer was found to pair well with small hands, striking comb-overs, huge egos and all things Mexican.”
The can features a caricature of Trump at a podium making one of his signature hand gestures.
The brewer is offering to donate 5% of every “Fake News Ale” can sold to a charity that people will nominate and vote for at www.northernmaverick.ca.
Northern Maverick’s 11,000 square-foot brewery/restaurant on King West house a 10-hectolitre brewhouse with eight 20- hectolitre fermenters, a 400-seat restaurant, a bar and a retail store offering their latest brews.
