(Newser) – A Mexican brewery has launched what it calls the first-ever beer aimed at gay drinkers, who it says have gotten the cold shoulder from brewers. “We're out in the market with great respect with the idea of offering a product directed to the gay-lesbian community that has been ignored for too long but is important and very demanding,” a rep for the distributor tells a Mexican news agency.

“Artisan Honey-Ales” will sell in Mexico, where some cities have already begun serving them, as well as Colombia and Japan; they may soon appear in the US, the Telegraph reports. The beers’ names pay tribute to gay icons and events; Purple Hand, for example, honors a 1969 San Francisco protest. Also, the beer’s labels can be removed and worn as symbols of gay pride.

Why does anyone have to cater to the Gays? I could care less about them, those people are just getting to be too much and are out of control. Beer is Beer and so what is so different about Gay beer, is it brewed from the the finest spit and cum of the gay community?

Bullshit. First gay beer was Coors light when Cheney's daughter worked for Coors and directed the market toward gay. Hey, she knew the deal and used it to make money. Money--that's what matters. If gay mattered her lesbian ass wouldn't have worked so hard to make Cheney and his hate gay people campaign important enough to pay off for her. And Coors--they are number one on the conservative list. Hardcore people there. They actually had a family meeting about getting kidnapped and agreed to not pay out a ransom. Yeah, that uncle-- they blew his head off. I don't know whether that is wicked or why they are billionaires and we aren't.
