If you were looking to try this Beyoncé-inspired beer, it may already be too late!
According to Billboard, a New York brewing company, Brooklyn’s Lineup Brewing, is ending their production of Bïeryoncé.
The company made the decision after receiving a cease and desist letter from the pop star’s team.
Owner Katarina Martinez spoke about the situation, saying:
“As a Hispanic, female-run business, I am very inspired by her so I thought I’d pay homage. We’re disappointed she didn’t take it as a compliment, but oh well — it was fun while it lasted!”
Although this beer didn’t end well, this is not the company’s first tribute to a star; they’ve also made beers dedicated to David Bowie and Freddie Mercury (Under Pressure), Carly Simon (I Bet You Think This Beer Is About You), and Notorious B.I.G (Notorious).
The beer will remain available until supplies end.
