Toronto Craft Brewer Launches “Fake News Ale”

A local startup brewery here in Toronto, ON, has just announced a charitable beer line to help reverse questionable policies and of course to help make beer great again.

As Northern Maverick gears up for a summer launch, the Toronto craft brewer unveiled its first beer as part of a charitable line of beers that will be available in their Bathurst brewery/restaurant, onsite beer shop and through direct delivery in Ontario.

Dubbed “Fake News Ale,” the sessions-able-ale was developed to offer a respite from the bleak political developments of late, an easy-drinking beer that lends itself to long discussions over world events with friends.

With tongue firmly in cheek, the beer was found to pair well with small hands, striking comb overs, huge egos and all things Mexican.

Northern Maverick stands in solidarity with its American neighbours in their time of need for beer, which is why the Canadian company is offering to donate 5 percent of every “Fake News Ale” can sold, to help reverse a questionable policy.

People will be invited to nominate and vote for which cause will receive the charitable donation on their website (Northern Maverick) in the coming weeks.

Clearly no American president has endorsed this beer, but the company is offering beer-lovers VIP tour tickets, launch invitations and the opportunity to be the first to get their hands on “Fake News Ale” by following Northern Maverick on social media @NorthernMaverickBrewing on Instagram and Facebook, and @NorthernMavBeer on Twitter.
