BrewDog Will Be Handing Out Free Beer In Manchester Following Trump Controversy

By Laura O'Neill

BrewDog will be handing out free beer to people who support love, not hate.

BrewDog had planned a series of events with US brewers Scofflaw at bars across the UK this week, including Manchester. The American company, who refer to themselves as the ‘Jackass brand of the brewing industry’ said anyone backing President Trump could get ‘beered up redneck style’ free of charge’.

However, BrewDog founder James Watt has since said all the events have been cancelled, stating in a Tweet that the offer had ‘nothing to do with his company’, who last year launched a beer called ‘The Make Earth Great Again’ to protest President Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

In subsequent Tweets, Mr. Watt branded the events ‘fake news’ and said the information had come from a ‘rogue element’ of Scofflaw’s agency.

He also said the brewery will be handing out free beer to anyone who tells bar staff they support love, not hate.
