  • Brewpub says party is about fun and not taking life too seriously. 

Toxic Brew Company has brewed up a lot of controversy with its Toxic Inauguration Party plans. 

In a Sunday Facebook post dripping with sarcasm and satire, the brewpub at 431 E. Fifth St. in the Oregon District asks fans to pick beers to be tapped for the party set for inauguration day, Friday, Jan 20.

The winners will represent “one of the Fiscal Years our next Commander in Chief will be a part of while in office.”

The beers up for vote have ticked off some and caused others to stand up and cheer for a beer.

The options, all actual beers, don’t paint a pretty picture of President-elect Donald J. Trump. 

They include the following: 

  • Founders Dirty Bastard
  • Flying Dog Horn Dog
  • Green Flash Le Freak
  • Avery Hog Heaven
  • Avery Czar
  • Avery White Rascal
  • Coronado Idiot IPA
  • Coronado Stupid Stout
  • North Peak Diabolical 
  • Weyerbacher Heresy
  • Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot
  • Alesmith Tart lil' Devil 
  • Alesmith lil' Devil
  • Alesmith Old Numbskull

Toxic posted a statement for those who don’t particularly like its humor (and everyone else, too):

To All: The data clearly show that about half that voted, voted for Trump. Toxic has many friends that voted for every candidate for (many) reasons. We support anyone's personal beliefs and actions as long as they don't intentionally hurt themselves or someone else. We would have had a very similar party if Hillary were elected...I mean can you imagine some of those names...this is not about a political stance, as we don't have one. This party is about not taking life so seriously that it no longer becomes fun and we can't make fun of ourselves anymore. We appreciate your comments and feedback, however, this is about voting for some very tasty liquid, we hope you will share your vote for the beers you love not spread hate. Cheers

Be a part of our Toxic Inauguration party on Friday, Jan 20th, 2017. We will be marking this day with 5 guest beers, each representing one of the Fiscal Years our next Commander in Chief will be a part of while in office. We might even brew a beer just for this historic occasion.

Step One: Vote in the next 9 days for the beers to be tapped. Comment with your top 3 listed. Don't skip voting just because you are not afraid of what we tap. Remember, someone who is easily frightened will vote. Do you want someone voting for your next craft beer?

Step 2: Wait for the results. We will organize into bins the votes coming in by the 9 voting days. Voted will be organized by first letter of last name (4 randomly selected letter groupings) and second letter of first name (3 randomly selected letter groupings). Confused? Congrats--now you understand the Electoral College process! And each bin will have an electoral vote for our beers.

Step 3: Come in Friday, Jan 20th as early as 11:30 (when we open early just for the day) so we can watch the magic happen at noon. Support your favorite name pick:

Founders Dirty Bastard
Flying Dog Horn Dog
Green Flash Le Freak
Avery Hog Heaven
Avery Czar
Avery White Rascal
Coronado Idiot IPA
Coronado Stupid Stout
North Peak Diabolical 
Weyerbacher Heresy
Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot
Alesmith Tart lil' Devil 
Alesmith lil' Devil
Alesmith Old Numbskull
Epic Escape to Colorado

Cheers! FYI, if you think your vote doesn't count...sorry
