Straight, no chaser: Virginia brewery takes shot at Redskins’ Snyder with new IPA

Whether fan or detractor, watching the 1-8 Washington Redskins play football is tough to stomach. But a Loudoun County, Virginia, brewery is providing an aptly-named means to get through it.

Harpers Ferry Brewing is releasing a new “Sell The Team” IPA on Wednesday, a plea for Redskins owner Dan Snyder to relinquish his control of the D.C. region’s once-beloved team.

The brew, described as “bitter and slightly disappointing, like a day at FedEx Field” contains 9.5% alcohol, which should be considered the minimum amount of booze ingested while watching a professional football team go more than three full games without scoring a single touchdown.

The beer comes 11 days before fans are doomed to watch the 1-8 Redskins host the currently 1-7 New York Jets at FedEx Field on Nov. 17. Drink up.
