New ‘Submission Ale’ beer mocks Islam with a pig in a hijab

Radical Islamic terrorists and liberals appear to be the two groups angry over a new beer being introduced by a microbrewery in St. Louis, which mocks Islam.

The new beer from Alpha Brewing Company mocking Islam is called Submission Ale, which depicts a pig wearing a hijab and the slogan “Alpha Akbar,” one part of the label reads. “This smoked ale will blow your mind.”

Riverfront Times notes there will be a change as the company’s head brewer, Derrick Langeneckert, says Submission Ale will get a new name because he didn’t realize 2nd Shift Brewing already makes a beer with the same moniker – not addressing the backlash from insulting Muslims.

Langeneckert says the criticism is silly. “This is the eighth beer in our Indoctrination Series,” he says. “No one was upset when we put the pope on a label.”

Alpha announced the series making fun of religion back in January, and put all 12 labels online at that point, Langeneckert says. There was no controversy.

“Everyone’s OK when it’s L. Ron Hubbard you’re mocking,” he says. “Religion is kind of funny. Everyone thinks theirs is the right one, and everyone is ridiculous.”

“I wouldn’t say the label is off the table quite yet,” he says. He says he’ll make up his mind in a few days, admitting, “I don’t know. I got whacked in the face with a big wet fish this morning.”

That said, he notes that the people he’s heard from so far don’t seem to be Muslims, or even people who regularly buy his beer. “People are tweeting things like, ‘I’ve never bought an Alpha beer, and I never will.’ Great. Don’t buy this one, either.”

Recently, a Sweet Baby Jesus beer was pulled from stores/shelves in Ohio after an uproar, but is still availabe around the Midwest. More on that story – click here
