The Christmas Beer That Wasn't

This story was uncovered by Sweet.

I have no problems with Santa's about you?

In this image released by Shelton Brothers, the design for a beer bottle label is shown. In a complaint filed in U.S. District, Shelton Brothers accuses the Maine Bureau of Liquor Enforcement of censorship for denying applications for labels for Santa's Butt Winter Porter and two other beers it wants to sell in Maine. The episode is reminiscent of last year when Connecticut told Shelton Brothers it had problems with its Seriously Bad Elf ale.

UPDATE: 'Santa'a Butt' is out but 'Pig's Ass' is acceptable?

This name is a problem, but Pig's Ass is okay?

Yes, that is a real beer.

Perhaps if the would have called the beer
Santa's Sack, it would have made it to the store shelves.

Yes, it would be. I take that back.

I suppose you're right.
Back to the drawing board.

On a different note, before they invented the drawing board, what did people go back to?
