"Fake News Ale" - it's a real thing!

It’s here, of course, to “Make Beer Great Again.”
A brand-new Toronto brewery wants to give President Trump something else irritating, Canadian, and hard to grab. This time, though, it’s a 16-ounce beer mocking the increasingly unpopular leader to the immediate south. Dubbed Fake News Ale, possibly to up Northern Maverick Brewing Company’s odds of getting on CNN or in the New York Times, it’s said to pair well “with small hands, striking comb overs, HUUUGE egos and all things Mexican.”

Northern Maverick describes it as a session ale meant to facilitate easy drinking and “long discussions” of politics, but the brewery also explains it’s legitimately trying to do more than score easy advertising by making fun of the sitting U.S. president — 5 percent of sales are being set aside to “help reverse a questionable policy.” In true democratic form, which policy will be decided by popular vote; the brewery says that in the coming weeks, it will let people nominate a nonprofit or charitable group on its website, and the one that racks up the most votes will get the donation.


Wow - the popular vote actually counts in Canada!
