In Paris Pub, British Punters Drown Sorrows With Brexit Beer

If Prime Minister Theresa May or any other Briton needs some Dutch courage to see them through the fraught final countdown to Britain's departure from the European Union, they need look no further than a Paris pub and its popular "Brexit" beer.

Brewed by a pro-remain beer maker in Suffolk, the beer's hoppy notes give it a deliberate bitterness, said Lomig Fronty, a French barman at The Cricketer pub.

"An Anti-Brexit Move"

The brewery "wanted to put across its feelings towards Brexit, hence the bitterness of the beer," Fronty said in between pulling pints. "So that's what I tell people who don't want to take it for this reason, it's actually an anti-Brexit move to buy this beer."

Meanwhile, a British-Australian patron of The Cricketer named Rose commented, "Brexit is terrible. But at least the beer is good."
