Industry mag targets “sexist” craft beer names, ignores “social justice ale”

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Progressives have been waging a war on fun for quite some time so it should come as no surprise that they’re attacking craft beer now. 

An article in All About Beer magazine entitled, “Taking a Stand Against Sexist Beers”, details how that publication keeps beer names that are in poor taste out of its pages and reviews.

Author John Holl says small independent breweries have started to talk about their intentions to research gender and race in the industry dominated by men.

Breweries producing beers with names like Panty Peeler and Phat Bottom, and that use hair colours like blonde and amber to describe ales are behind the times, says Holl. Never mind that men also have blonde hair, and these terms are descriptors that help consumers identify what they’re drinking.

Holl further says it’s a social responsibility to stand up for women that are being objectified and treated like they’re beneath men but fails to note some of those beer names were coined by women.

Heat Street reports that last year a Fullbright scholar claimed “Panty Peeler” beer promoted rape culture, but the female co-founder of Midnight Sun Brewing Company meant for the name to be “consensual sex-positive” and the Lady Godiva logo was chosen as a symbol of female empowerment.

This double standard should extinguish All About Beer magazine’s virtue signalling effort.

Oh no, the dark ale is now considered racist.

heh he, unlike leftard’s who will lose their shit at the sight of a beer label or the utterance of a "taboo"word…Libtards are the new “church ladies.”

Like the easily offended “church ladies” of leftard lore, Libtards constantly find themselves grievously offended by a plethora of personal bigotries – which they see under every shadow – When they look around, they find nearly everything “unacceptable” and “problematic”, just like the naggy old church lady.

Libtards spend their life “shaming” others for not thinking like a perpetually maladjusted, cultish, ideologically clubfooted, regressive brainwashed zombie – just like clucking old Church ladies.

And just like pious old nattering church ladies, they are too busy finding fault in others to notice their own massive obvious iniquities – a toxic hypocrisy which is akin to intellectual suicide.

Preachy pseudo-progs unwittingly validate every stereotype conservatives hold of them.

cal crossland,

Well you are certainly the exception. I am amazed at MANY of the conservatives here that say that they don’t even watch mainstream or popular shows like Game Of Thrones, because those shows have a lack of morality and promote sin.

Just ask Peter Netterville, who defines the everything that you say you are not.

So I guess you would be fine then with Kevin O’Leary – fiscally conservative, but socially liberal since you don’t fit the supposed conservative stereotype.

Progressives/socialists like Jack Coverdale mock morality, which explains the degradation of society as society heads towards the left/progressive agenda.

They make nudity, sex of all types, and a variety of promiscuous behavior common place and acceptable in society and then they wonder why the number of rapes and child molestations go up. It is called cognitive dissonance and just plain old brain-dead stupidity.

Lol wow jack great stereotype of conservative, except i am a conservative and i am none of those things. I just believe that we need to be responsible today with our money so our children have a future where a liberal asks what can i have today and screw the future let them worry about that. BTW favorite show is game of thrones with tons of nudity and violence, a lot of my conservative are just worried about tomorrow and dont fit your stereotype.

Liberals hate stereotypes but you use one…. is that not hypocritical ?

FYI Jack, liberalism is a mental disorder please get checked out.

Leftist Looney Tunes ( with Porky Pig in the circle ) That’s all folks!

It’s hilarious that a conservative is complaining that progressives are ruining fun, when conservatives are incredibly uptight, sexually repressed, puritanical and prudish to the max.

Cable TV partially exists because conservatives can’t handle a little nudity, swears or mature content on network TV. And conservatives will really lose their shit if two women or two men kiss.

Completely hypocritical.

No, like totally dude. ah, ah, if you like ah, think my ah, totally superhero in the ah, world is a feminist, like, ah, watch me go, I can do ah, gooder, oops, sorry a ‘bedder’ job eh (my speech coach has Sundays off.)

My girlfriend loves a well crafted amber. (Love that girl ) Never once has she refused based on the label. Social engineering leftards gone craaaazy. Cheers, Prosit, Gesondheid, Salut, Santé, будьмо ( Boodmo/ Ukranian ) Biba, Na zdravi , Skål ,Proost, Terviseks ( pronounced Ter-vih-sex, gotta be a favorite, those darn Estonians).
Lots left out. Add if you care add a few.
Have a pint, enjoy, and have a little enjoyment on the creativity that the brewers put into their labels and names.
John Holl is probably a wine drinker anyway.
Life is good, beer makes it better.

All these movements have become Frankensteins. Bits and pieces of bodies from numerous graves that bear no resemblance to their origins.

Craft brewers are having some fun with branding using creative names – one of my favorites is “Audrey Hop-burn” IPA or that all time medal winner “sex in a glass” dunkelweizen bockbier – or “Arrogant Bastard” Pale ale but really, If you are an ordained priest of the yeast, it’s what’s in the bottle, not what’s on the label that matters. Spastic names often accompany a mundane brew.

PC is not allowed in my favorite craft brew oasis – there’s a reason for that, namely alcohol and naggy preachy politics are a bad mix – PC types will usually leave with a sore mouth if they push their luck.

Jack Cloverdale; you wouldn’t even be good for that you petulant little basement dweller.

People mention radical feminism to you, because feminism itself is a good thing, but I suppose you think women are only good for fucking, cleaning the house and cooking.

Along with Communism, Nazism, and Islam……Feminism is one of the greatest evils of the modern (and certainly “postmodern” age. I include the evil LGBTQetc. movement.
Don’t you mean RADICAL feminism? I am often asked.
N o, I mean Feminism, plain and simple.
Along with Islam and neo-Marxism, the greatest evil of our age.

Tell ya what burns my ass; when I ask for a pint and they bring me a dainty little glass with about 14 oz. and a one-inch empty space at he top. Every time it happens I imagine my English-born grandfather rolling in his grave.
There lights be a #%$&@!!! law!

Other inappropriate names of beer to ban:
Labatt’s Blue – endorses police (boys in blue) and the police state
Molson Canadian – describes a citizen of a post-national state – anti-globalist
Black Label – racist
Old Style – promotes out-dated thinking, anti-globalist
Extra Old Stock – promotes the history of racist white people
Big Rock – demeans “small” rocks
Moosehead – promotes animal felatio
Budweiser – “Bud” ignores alternative genders

As to Keith Barnes, yes they should all take up skydiving without parachutes.

Holly Nicholas is absolutely right! It is hard to keep track of what is considered to be offensive. When a person is offended by everything, naturally, the word loses it’s meaning.
commented 2017-03-05 15:35:01 -0500
SJWs, Social Justice WANKERS. Useless, nothing better to do, Morons. The should all take up a hobby, like Sky Diving.
commented 2017-03-05 15:14:41 -0500
The SJW’s will never be happy until they are the last one standing. Nothing is ever good enough for them. They are far worse than the most fundamentalist church. You know the ones they despise so intensely.
