Vermont Craft Brewery Dedicates A ‘Bernie Weiss’ Beer To Bernie Sanders
Although Super Tuesday was a difficult loss in many ways for Bernie Sanders, he had the unique option to comfort himself post-polling–by kicking back and drinking one of the ‘Bernie Weisse’ specialty brews released in his honor.
The Vermont-based operation Zero Gravity Brewing specifically released the Berliner Weisse beer on Tuesday to as a delicious support for Sanders, with 20 percent of the proceeds going towards the non-profit HeadCount which encourages young people to vote. Described as “slightly sour and forward-thinking flavor,” the Bernie Weisse cans are adorned with an endearing caricature of the presidential candidate in a plaid shirt and suspenders, and were an immediate big draw.
“We had a huge line out the door in the morning,” reported the brewery employee Matt Wilson, “We sold through about half of it in about an hour.”
