Run to your local beer mart as fast as you can, because these cans of Sun King Brewery's Wee Mac Scottish Ale are sure to become collectors items.
A bottling line employee decided to play a little joke, and now 20,000 cans of the brew are stamped with the words "Tom Brady Sux," right next to the expiration date.
The Indy Star got the full story from the brewery. Apparently an employee named "Biscuit" is responsible for the prank, which happened on May 13 in the midst of "deflategate." Sun King always puts a different hidden saying on the bottom of their cans, next to the date of production.
"Every day, we change the thing on the bottom of our cans. One of the guys running the canning lines had to come up with something. Biscuit is his name. So Biscuit put 'Tom Brady Sux.'"
The brewery responded on twitter:
A SKB employee had fun w the canning date coder. While we don't condoned the message we understand his Colts passion http://t.co/ADuZpvpd85— Sun King Brewing (@SunKingBrewing) August 11, 2015
From now on, Biscuit has to get his sayings approved in advance.
