Well yeah, man tribalism will always be there. These are strange times for sure.

I support anyone's right to get riled up about what they are passionate about, and anyone else's right to counter with their own view, and why not. The only thing that's gross is attempts at silencing views...

Nickel Brook wimped out big time on that one and the new cans are try-hard and look horrendous as fuck. I haven't seen or heard any women complain. Just dudes that are trying so hard on behalf of the women who didn't ask for their help or opinions of what is or isn't sexist. Typical 2019.

The whole thing actually turned my off of Nickel Brook quite a bit. Folding to pressure of the few in the name of political correctness, and I don't plan on buying any of their beer any time soon. A real shame.


Not too hard to find women who appreciated the label change. A couple of weeks ago, for example, Robin Leblanc (@thethirstywench) tweeted that she appreciated the can change. A bunch of the responses to that tweet were women who agreed with her and were happy to have seen the change.

Softies.
