"He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man." - Samuel Johnson
In times of great misery, failure and embarrassment - you know, days like today - the best we can do is come together as a community of dying humanoids and drink too much. IBW and the Green Lady have come together to help in that effort.
At 4pm today The Green Lady will tap our American Orange Ale Trumpty Dumpty. All proceeds from sales of Trumpty Dumpty today will be donated to Planned Parenthood in the name of Mike Pence. So, come take your medicine and join us, as a family, as we all salute our new candy colored clown president properly.
In more inspiring news, we've released some more of our very popular beer we produced in support of Drag City Records' Purling Hiss for their tour this past fall. Here's the description:
"To celebrate "High Bias", the new Purling Hiss release on Drag City Records, IBW assembled our most loving homage to trashy, American macro-beers, just the kind of beer that built the fuzzy guitar rock of "High Bias". Purling Hiss is full of pilsner, munich, rice adjunct and noble hops creating a fizzy, yellow sleigh-ride that pairs well with brown meth, NASCAR and Jesus footies. Enjoy it cold and fast before this whole hen house heads straight to Hell."
We may be too late on the hen house in Hell thing, but we can still drink. Get this very limited release at:
- Beer Temple
- Bottles and Cans
- Grand & Western
- Liquor Park
- Bitter Pops
- Your Happy Place Liquors
- Binnys Lakeview
For you nice folks outside of Chicago, you can get Purling Hiss on Beer Temple's website for shipment to most of the 48 states.
We've got a couple other bottle releases coming up in the next few weeks. Jinx Remover is a 5.1% Brett Pale Ale that we are quite proud of and works wonders at removing bad luck and hexes brought on from the Evil Eye. And Hasselhopf, an 8% Hopped-Up Farmhouse, will make it's bottle premier with an update to the recipe and a very handsome label you can use to impress your friends.
Stay tuned to this here email list or our Facebook page for specifics as those get released.
Ok. That's it. I've got nothing positive to offer you and no healing words. We're all doomed. The joke is over. Just tune those skills at your "duck & cover" technique and keep plenty of medicine on hand to smooth the corners. In closing, I leave you with this:
"Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush (and Donald Trump)? They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us—they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis. And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them.” - Hunter S. Thompson
P.S. Happy Birthday David Lynch! RIP Miguel Ferrer.
