Take that orange slice outta your glass of Blue Moon and pour it down the drain. Although you may think you know Blue Moon wheat beet and the Blue Moon Brewing Company, you don’t. You probably discovered Blue Moon at a local beer festival or brewing competition, or at your local bar (on tap with other so-called microbrews). You probably think you’re so cool cause you got the cute bartender to cut up an orange slice to float in your Blue Moon, while that douche to your left has a lemon slice in his Pyramid Hef. What you don’t know is that Blue Moon is a Coors Brewing Company product, purposely NOT advertised by the company as a Coors product. But instead, paraded around the beer tasting festivals and circuits as a “Blue Moon Brewing Company” product. Yes, THAT Coors. The one that has been known to have possibly been in support of some of our favorite movements: pro-Klu Klux Klan, pro-Ward Connerly/anti-Affirmative Action, Pro-Nazi/Anti-Semite, and anti-Gay.
Whereas before, I didn’t have a problem boycotting Coors products because of their neocon ways, this new development is problematic for me. But I do urge you to think before you drink Blue Moon. Not only does the bartender NOT enjoying slicing up oranges for your ass, every bottle you drink is one stepper closer to a whiter, less gay America.
