Offensive Beer Names

I thought it might be illuminating to look through the names of the beers we've had on tap at Hashigo Zake and check whether anyone might be offended by them. This could be an invaluable resource the next time the Dominion Post are looking for a story. By the time I got to the Es I was exhausted.

But to be fair to the Dominion Post, Garage Project do appear in this list an alarming number of times, and this is without getting as far as Golden Brown and Pernicious Weed.

  2. Some people/groups make a business out of being "offended".

  3. Is there a list of beers that actually offended people in Hashigo Zake? Maybe something with a label with a picture of a stickman, a webcam and a youtube logo? ;)
