‘Punk’ Brewery Releases Anti-Establishment Beer After 12 Years of Trying

Brewdog’s ‘My Name Is (Unelected) Boris’ is the closest the brand has ever got to sticking it to the man

Brewdog makes another stand, and manages not to make it sexist

Congratulations and pints all round for Brewdog, which has managed to pull off a marketing stunt without incorporating casual sexism, casual sexism based on “beer porn,” or implicit, if perhaps mistaken endorsement of Donald Trump. Its new beer, My Name Is (Unelected Boris) — itself based on its craft beer trademark / IP lawsuit stand against Elvis Presley’s estate — reflects on how Boris Johnson is an unelected prime minister. There’s just one problem: he wants an election. Another misfire, but without a ton of adjacent unpleasantness, and some kudos should be afforded for finally making a beer in the name of protest after building a brand on the word “punk” for 12 years and counting.
