Love the name of the brewery too -- Howe Sound! Was founded in 1996, so the name wasn't chosen to make fun of the financial system.http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2008/11/12/bc-bailout-bitter-beer.html#Scene_1
B.C. brewery toasts tough times with Bailout Bitter beer
A microbrewery in British Columbia is toasting the current economic downturn by launching a special brand of recession-style beer.
Howe Sound Brewery has named its most bitter-tasting brew Bailout Bitter in honour of the government bailouts of the financial sector that have taken place in an attempt to mitigate the global financial crisis.
Calling it "bitter ale for bitter times," the brewery said the new beer will cost less than its other brands.
