Now this is the beer Donald Trump should be taking credit for inspiring: Saugatuck Brewing, a small American-owned microbrewery in Michigan (so basically the anti-Budweiser) saw the King of Beer’s shameless pandering by temporarily adopting the brand name “America,” and it responded with an announcement of its own for a new brew simply called ’Murica, an obvious patriotic improvement. It’s brewed in a style America’s founders might describe as “Freedom,” and the process is naturally overseen by 1,776 bald eagles.

The saddest part is that people actually took this joke seriously, prompting Saugatuck to come back and re-explain, “This beer, ‘Murica, was and is a piece of satire meant to bring a few laughs.” While the brewers there insist they love America, they can’t make this super-patriotic brew because, for one, they “do not have 1,776 Bald Eagles at the brewery.” Although they do note: “But how cool would that be?”
