A Texas brewery is being criticized for its beer slogan that some say promotes "rape culture."

 

Deep Ellum Brewing is selling its American Blonde Ale beer with an image on the can of a doll wearing a blonde wig with the slogan, "goes down easy," as part of a marketing campaign to celebrate a year since the drink was first released.

 

While the craft beer industry has no shortage of clever, if not slightly offensive labels, Genevieve Cato,who writes for the political blog Burnt Orange Report, says this one goes too far.

 

"Shouldn't we expect more of our local Texas breweries than to rely on rape culture to sell their beer?"

 

She points to the company’s Facebook page which posted a picture of a van with the logo emblazoned on the side, sparking a slew of angry comments.

 

“You need to look no further than the comments on their Facebook picture to see the way advertising like this fuels the acceptability of rape culture in our society,” she wrote. “It is completely unacceptable, and unnecessary, for breweries to continue to use this kind of language to sell their products."

 

Deep Ellum owner John Reardon said that the rape culture claim went too far. “We knew the play on words there,” he told the Dallas Observer.

 

Reardon says he will drop the marketing if enough people are upset.

 

“If there are women out there who are offended, then we should apologize," he added.

 

Many took to the company’s Facebook page to vent their anger at Deep Ellum Brewery. One Facebook user wrote: “For as long as you continue that incredibly offensive campaign, I will boycot (sic) any bar that carries your beer!!”

 

But others insisted that the company should not fall victim to “social media rants.”

 

“Change nothing, you've done nothing wrong. People will always complain about everything, no matter what it is. Do you really think you'll sell more beer by people not reading the van? Don't let one person on a crusade to label anything male with "rape culture" steer the marketing of your great beer company,” wrote another user.

 

Deep Ellum has not yet responded to FoxNews.com's request for comment.

Scary to think of how this epidemic would go unnoticed without the aid of social media. Went to Chicago this past weekend had some good beers. One of the most hop obsessed city's I've been to, everything is some sort of IPA or American Pale Ale, I even got the hoppiest hefeweizen I've ever had courtesy of Half Acre Beer Co. Enjoyed a lot of 3 Floyds though which cannot be gotten where I live at all. Also got to taste an Allagash Merveilleux finally after being denied at the brewery a few months ago.

 

Had some sort of passion fruit hefeweizen at a random bar there too, I think the brewery name had lizard in it or something like that? It was fantastic, slightly tart, not overwhelmingly fruity, anyone know the beer I'm talking about, had little luck googling?

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Officials are still investigating the cause of a house fire that broke out on 42nd St. near Oates Ave. in Columbus, Thursday afternoon, but residents are blaming a newly installed water heater.

 

Six adults and two young children were inside watching television when the room began filling with smoke. After the children were rescued and everyone made it outside safely, a man who walks with a cane went back in the burning house to retrieve something he left behind.

 

"I told them to get the kids out and everything, and me myself, being an alcoholic, I was trying to get my beer out," said Walter Serpit, "I went back into the house like a dummy and the door shut on me because this back draft was about to kill me."

 

Serpit managed to save several cans of beer and he escaped the home without getting burned.

 

The Red Cross arrived shortly after firefighters extinguished the flames and they are helping the family get back on their feet. One Red Cross volunteer at the scene said they were able to respond quickly because a neighbor alerted them to the situation.

This one? Had it today, it was delicious.

Did not like the zinful drakonic, overwhelming amount of berries in that.
