A popular New England brewery has created a new beer, ‘S’mitten Mittens’
The can features Bernie Sanders infamous pose from the Biden inauguration
The Brewing Warehouse came up with the idea a few days after the inauguration and asked ‘CAN SOMEONE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE MAKE THIS BEER!’
So what does it taste like?
Bernie’s Smitten Mittens is ‘a warming, maple s’mores stout with maple syrup, milk sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, graham cracker and marshmallow,’ according to the brewers.
It was inspired after the senator’s special gloves appeared to go viral.
The famous mittens were knitted by Jen Ellis who teaches in the Essex Westford School District.
‘His mittens, they have the s’mores colors, but then, because we’re in Vermont, it has to be a maple s’mores stout.’ ‘ Four Quarters Taproom Manager Will Havens said to the Milton Independent.
The 79-year-old’s wool mitten and signature brown coat stood in stark contrast to the long flowing overcoats and leather gloves at the Capitol
Jen Ellis is the woman behind the mittens worn by Bernie Sanders during Biden’s inauguration. She has long since sold out of the comfy hand-warmers
The special beer is only available for a short time over Valentine’s weekend
The stout supposedly tastes of caramel, maple and smores in true New England style
The idea for the beer was that of the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, Vermont’s largest craft beer, wine and liquor store.
It created a spoof beer can complete with mitten graphics for the special ale.
‘Can someone for the love of god please make this beer!’ the caption on the Instagram post read.
‘Beverage Warehouse was just so excited about it, so we said, ‘Let’s do it,” Havens said. ‘We thought if there was ever a time to make a beer for a meme, it would probably be this one, just given how close to home it all was.’
A portion of the sales from the beer will be donated to a local food bank.
Cans of Bernie’s Smitten Mittens will be available in Winooski starting at 10am on Friday and also at Four Quarters Brewing on West Canal Street in the town.
There were countless memes portraying Sanders wearing his comfy knitted gloves in all kinds of amusing places and situations
