Bug Brewery Endorsing Religion in Australia!
A commercial tie-up between Coopers Brewery and the Bible Society of Australia has prompted this spoof from The Feed on SBS TV Viceland...

The Feed mock Coopers' PR Stunt

On 9 March 2017 Coopers Brewery launched a limited edition premium beer (in both can and carton) to commemorate the bicentenary of the Bible Society. Public outcry arose over the use of the Coopers Brewery branded beer in a video of the Bible Society debate over the issue of marriage equality. Coopers Brewery issued two statements on 12 March in response to the backlash, and also posted a tweet saying they were not trying to push a religious message. Numerous bars since announced they will no longer be stocking Coopers beers.

It's also the world's largest producer of homebrewing equipment.Its shares are primarily owned by the extended Cooper family, and the company's constitution and classes of shares makes it difficult to sell shares outside the family.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Religion and beer can work out, sometimes:

He'brew : The Chosen Beer

Messiah Nut Brown Ale
