Dock Street Brewery will soon release a beer named after U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump. But far from being in his honour, the description on the brewery’s website makes it clear the brew is poking fun at the man campaigning on a platform of stopping Muslims from entering the U.S. and erecting a giant wall on the Mexican border.
“We’re brewing this series to declare our disdain for Drumpf, and to extend a little nod of solidarity to our friends, fans and neighbours that also believe the country deserves better representation,” the brewery said, using the Trump family’s original German name.
“We just can’t wrap our well-coiffed heads around a candidate who encourages his supporters to attack protesters at his rallies, wants to limit access to the U.S. based on religion, and flagrantly manipulates facts and data. Oh yeah, and that ridiculous wall idea? Come on.”
The beer hasn’t been released yet, but will be a stout, with a 4.5 per cent alcohol by volume. The brewery says it will have the brew on tap at its brewpub, where “guests are encouraged to debate, discuss, and toast to free speech and democracy.”

Trump campaign manager charged with battery of reporter
Jupiter police release video of Lewandowski incident
The Jupiter Police Department on Tuesday released surveillance video that allegedly showed Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, grabbing the arm of a former Breitbart reporter on March 8.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was charged with battery in Florida on Tuesday after allegations that he forcefully grabbed a reporter at a campaign event.
Police in Jupiter, Florida, charged Lewandowski, 42, with intentionally grabbing and bruising the arm of Michelle Fields, a reporter at the time for the conservative news outlet Breitbart, when she tried to question Trump at a campaign event on March 8.
“Mr. Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge,” Trump’s campaign said in a statement. “He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated.”
Police released a video showing the incident. It shows Fields walking alongside Trump, and Lewandowski grabbing her arm and pulling her backward as she tried to question the Republican candidate. Previous videos of the incident had been obscured by people in the crowd.
