Beyonce Halts Rip-Off Beer Because No One Makes Money but the Queen

Beyonce seems like one of the cooler celebrities in the world. Minus the whole revealing of children thing. But don’t you dare try and make money off her name.

Lineup Brewing tried to sell a little German Pilsner called “Bïeryoncé”.

The can looks not so suspiciously unlike the cover of Beyonce’s 2013 self-titled album.

Beyonce had no time for this bullshit beer, sending a cease and desist letter to the Brooklyn-based company.

Head brewer and co-owner Katarina Martinez told Pitchfork, “As a Hispanic, female run business, I am very inspired by her so I thought I’d pay homage. We’re disappointed she didn’t take it as a compliment, but oh well. It was fun while it lasted!” She said she was inspired because she went to Oktoberfest instead of a Beyonce concert. That’s not inspiration. That’s choosing to drink with fellow drinkers instead of choosing to drink with parents who were dragged to a Beyonce concert by their kids. Don’t act like you made some noble choice.

I do like her passive aggressive comment. She’s trying to shame Beyonce for holding down a female minority. If only the Queen weren’t too high up to hear comments from peasants.

The beer has been distributed throughout New York. If you happen to find a can, drink it. Because a good beer should never go to waste. And if the beer sucks, then maybe it’s not a bad thing that Beyonce halted production.

The real mistake here was making it a German Pilsner. Beyonce isn’t German. The beer should have been a bitter-tasting beer with a hint of lemonade.
