Brewing Company Trolls the Astros for Sign Stealing With New Craft Beer Called Trash Can Banger

SJ - May 26, 2020

One of the big winners of the global pandemic, yes unfortunately there are some winners, is the Houston Astros.  Hating them for their sign stealing scandal, that helped them win a World Series back in 2017, was hot and heavy right before Spring Training was halted and the MLB season was suspended.

A brewing company is doing their part to make sure we don't forget how awful the Astros organization is by trolling the shit out of them.  The Departed Soles Brewing Company created a new crafted beer they named the Trash Can Banger to make sure nobody ever forgets how the Astors cheated, and for the most part, got away with it.

Sometimes you need to bend the rules a little to Marwin the day, so we're up and at 'em a little earlier than we should be, getting a fresh new Hazy IPA in cans Justin time for a surprise Sunday release!

Some of you may have already gotten the Signs that this was coming today, but beer releases are like a pitcher's arsenal, and you never really know what's coming and when... unless, of course, you cheat.
When this pandemic first struck, much of our staff worked from home, while Brian rededicated himself to the Art of Brewing.. rewatching brewing school classes, reading new studies, and pouring over interviews, trying to Luhn(h)ow we could improve our efficiencies and processes. The result is a Fiers new approach to everything we do, from mashing in, to dry hopping, water treatments to canning, and everything in between.

And, well, we don't mean to breg, man, but this new beer is Reddickulous, and you won't want to miss it!
Brewed with Citra in our whirlpool, and given a touch of milk sugar for complexity, this juice bomb was twice dry hopped... first with more Citra, then with 2017 grams per barrel of Galaxy and Strata Hops... and just like an Asteroid, the flavor is out of this world! Like a craft beer Minute Made orange juice, to enjoy at a Park this fine day!

Need some #TrashCanBanger in your life? Maybe Collin a favor with a friend if you're stuck in Correa, to have 'em pick you up some, or Cora ride share from Dallas to the brewery. If all else fails, throw a Belt & ran to the brewery, with a little Springer in your step, to be here at noon when we open up and release it to the world... Assuming our canning run goes off without a Hinch, 4 packs of this new #DefinitelyNotGlutenFree Banger will be available at noon for $17. Set your alarm to buzz, or tape an electrode to your chest to make sure you don't forget!

The show Musgrove on! We're open from noon until 8pm, accepting same day delivery orders up until 4pm. Usual minimums, fees, etc. apply! Menu in story.

This is fantastic.  I love everything about it.

Unfortunately fans are probably not going to have the opportunity to troll them in person once the season resumes.  But if I know baseball fans, and I do know baseball fans, they won't forget and once all of this craziness is over they will unload on these losers.
