'Car Bomb Stout' promotion blows up in brewery's face
from USA TODAY
What started as a St. Patrick's Day promotion turned into a $2,500 apology from a Florida craft brewery. Fat Point Brewing posted pictures of cupcakes and beer to its Facebook page announcing the release of its Car Bomb Stout, which was to be served with Car Bomb cupcakes in honor of the holiday. But someone #8212; obviously, not a history major — forgot about The Troubles, the nationalist and religious conflict in Northern Ireland that began in the late 1960s and ended in 1998 with the Belfast Agreement.
