“We’re blown away by all of the positive support that we have received for this beer,” he added. “It is truly amazing to see the support that people are putting behind small business at this time and we encourage folks to flock to their other favorite local small businesses the way they did to us yesterday.” (RELATED: Beer Brewed To ‘Celebrate’ All Things ‘Progressive’ Taken Off Shelf Over Racist Look)
