BrewDog offers up big fuck you to UK prohibitionists

Win barely edges out the FAIL Britannia tag.  BrewDog is a brewery in Scotland...something's missing, ah,

What can I say, part Scot, I gotta have more cowbell bagpipes, and Scotland the Brave is kickass.  Anyway, BrewDog is a brewery in Scotland, and they created a particularly potent beer, which is about 18% alcohol, or about 36 proof, which is very high for beer.  Anyway, a bunch of UK nannies threw a shitfit, made a big stink about it, won't someone please think of the children, etc, ad infinitum.  The folks at BrewDog did exactly the right thing, put out a 2 proof beer (1.1% alcohol), and named it Nanny State.  Of course this is the response from the dour, humourless fucktard Nanny Staters,

Jack Law, chief executive of Alcohol Focus Scotland, said of the new Nanny State beer: "This is a positive move which proves that low strength doesn't compromise quality.

"However the name of the beer proves that once again this company is failing to acknowledge the seriousness of the alcohol problem facing Scotland."

It must be hell being this guy, probably stays up at night having absolute panic attacks over the thought that someone, somewhere is enjoying life.
