5 Rabbit Cerveceria Pulls Beer From Trump Hotel Bar After Campaign Comments

imageFrom The Chicago Tribune:

The Bedford Park brewery said it is pulling out from a beer partnership with the Trump Hotel Chicago’s mezzanine-level bar, Rebar (a story first reported by WBEZ), after the sentiment Trump expressed during his June 16 speech: “(Mexico is) sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

5 Rabbit founder Andres Araya said the brewery made an easy drinking golden ale for Rebar that was to be available exclusively at the Trump building throughout summer. It has been on tap for at least a month, he said.  However, 5 Rabbit will redirect the approximately 50 remaining kegs to various Chicago bars.
