Philly's Dock Street Brewery Launches Anti-Donald Trump Beer Series

A Philadelphia brewery is making a political statement by launching a series of anti-Donald Trump beers called the "Friends Don't Let Friends Vote Drumpf" series.

Dock Street Brewery, at 50th Street and Baltimore Avenue in West Philadelphia, announced the beers last week. Its first brew is "Short-Fingered Stout," described on the brewery's website as "a bitter and delusional stout with an airy, light-colored head atop a so-so body."

The word "Drumpf" in the series' name comes from a recent episode of "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver," devoted to mocking Trump's candidacy for president. Oliver brought up a book by journalist Gwenda Blair entitled, "The Trumps: Three Generations That Built An Empire," which said Trump’s family name was actually “Drumpf.”

"Beer has always, throughout history, been a key ingredient in the recipe for revolutionary ideas," Dock Street's announcement read. "In that spirit, we're brewing this series to declare our disdain for Drumpf, and to extend a little nod of solidarity to our friends, fans and neighbors that also believe the country deserves better representation — on a national and international platform — in the race to be Commander in Chief."

Dock Street said a release date for the series will be announced in the near future, and that the brewery will invite attendees of the release to "debate, discuss, and toast to free speech and democracy."
