  2. Oh dear oh dear. Is that for Front Magazine or something? Perhaps they thought we would find out. Either way - abysmal.

  3. Yeh is that to do with front magazine? If so then I imagine they are more to blame and probably said 'its gota have tits on the bottle', to which brewdog replied 'whatever, as long as we can make the beer however we want.'

Cringe-worthy sexual references, out-dated clichés cringe, and grimace inducing design sadly dominate real ale branding.
