Recently, a New Jersey Brewery by the name of Departed Soles Brewing, released Trash Can Banger IPA.
There is no hiding the reference that Departed Soles Made. They went for the throat of the Houston Astros organization and the 2017 scandal.
The can itself is a reference to the Astros sunrise uniforms which were cool in the 90s then lame and then cool again, but now no one wants to wear them.
Their description of the beer goes as follows, “Beer releases are like a pitcher’s arsenal, and you never really know what’s coming and when … unless, of course, you cheat,”
shots….HAVE BEEN FIRED!
I see this whole thing as a win and a massive middle finger to the whole organization and I LOVE IT.
I don’t know if it’s supposed to be a shot at Jose Altuve, but the Tall Boy format is hilarious. Poor little guy would be blacked out for years from drinking one.
The Astros paid their debt to the MLB, but as fans, we aren’t satisfied. Rest assured Houston, there will be games where we bang cans, there will be more references like this, and no matter what, we will not let you live this down.
