Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn tweeted out a St. Patrick’s Day photo featuring a beer label from Ireland’s hated rivals in Manchester, England.
Cornyn, who is running for re-election this year, tweeted “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” Monday with a photo of a case of Boddingtons Pub Ale. The case featured a British flag on its packaging.

Boddingtons Brewery was originally founded in 1778 in Manchester, England. Its trademark beer was known as “The Cream of Manchester.” The company stopped production in 2012.
