Brewdog forced to recall beers with X-rated expiration date

11 March, 2016

Brewdog has been forced to recall cans of its flagship Punk IPA that gave their expiration date as “Mother Fucker Day”. 

Retailers were told the batch was not meant for public consumption, but for an internal event, and were asked to return them, but one speculated it was the handiwork of a disgruntled employee.  

A source at Majestic Wine told OLN: "We were told to take all Brewdog Punk cans with a specific expiration date off of sale. Then we were told that batch wasn’t meant for the public - it was meant for an internal event and had something rude written on the bottom so would be collected and replaced. 

“Looks more like a disgrutled employee to me. We had 20 six-packs, which is probably about average across 250 stores.”

What makes wine special

Reaching the 50th instalment of Hemming’s Way is hardly the biggest milestone, but I don’t need much of an excuse to pour myself a glass of champagne before getting dressed. It’s a better reason than I had for all 49 other instalments, anyway. Not that that stopped me.
