Smug Brewing in Rhode Island couldn't let Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski leave the Patriots without trolling them with a sour and salty beer.  They made it clear they're not really mad at the two stars for taking their talents to Tampa Bay and it's clearly a joke.

But they also made it clear that they couldn't let the two go to the Buccaneers without taking their shots at the New England sports heroes.

From Outkick:

“We came up with this beer a year ago, then we decided to retire it. We said we were going to come back to it, but we never did. Now we decided to release it. We developed a beer with the right amount of sour, and a little bit of saltiness. We blended all that together with the best Florida key limes we could find.”

Traitorade is 7% ABV. I’m not a beer or retirement expert, but something tells me you sip this while sitting outside your trailer in Clearwater while trying to figure out what you’re going to cook for dinner. Two of these bad boys and you’re retirement rocked for the day. Or so I would think.

The beer quickly became a hit with their customers and with good reason.  Who doesn't want to say they have a case of Traitorade?

These kinds of things are why local breweries are the best.  They have the ability to put something together to troll the hell out of people.  Bringing beer and football together while trolling two legends is a beautiful thing to see.

I can't wait for football season to get here.
