Flying Dog Raging Bitch

Flying Dog brewery and the cartoonist Ralph Steadman have launched a claim for damages against the Michigan Liquor Commission in a row over censorship. The commission banned the beer label and slogan for Raging Bitch IPA on the grounds that they were "detrimental to to the public health, safety and welfare".

Steadman said "Freedom of Speech and artistic expression is as fundamental to our being as is the alphabet itself. I thought censorship went out with DH Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover about 50 years ago."

Flying Dog's excellent beers can be found in an increasing number of pubs and bars in the U.K. Someone else who wouldn't approve is Roger Protz who is astounded that anyone could possibly want CAMRA to embrace keg beer.
