Founders “Bastard” Beer Approval Update

Some of you may remember the statement about a month ago referencing the fact that the ABC was not approving Founders Backwoods Bastard or Dirty Bastard labels for sale in Alabama.

Free the Hops received word earlier this afternoon from Birmingham Beverage Company that the “ABC has reconsidered and has sent a letter to Founders requesting they resubmit for the ‘bastard’ series label approval”.

This is great news for craft beer drinkers in Alabama and these beers should be hitting shelves in the state soon.  Thank you for all of your support in helping to make this happen.

    That’s great news. Now if we can get the container size fixed, maybe there will be some bombers of Arrogant Bastard, Double Bastard, and Lukcy Bastard in the near future!

    That is great news considering they already allowed raging b*tch. Seemed a little ridiculous honestly.

    Is the News reporter behind the times on this one, or did something else happen?
