Good for them! NBC Channel 4 Los Angeles (h/t Jacquie)

Dock Street Brewery, at 50th Street and Baltimore Avenue in West Philadelphia, announced the beers last week. Its first brew is "Short-Fingered Stout," described on the brewery's website as "a bitter and delusional stout with an airy, light-colored head atop a so-so body."

The word "Drumpf" in the series' name comes from a recent episode of "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver," devoted to mocking Trump's candidacy for president. Oliver brought up a book by journalist Gwenda Blair entitled, "The Trumps: Three Generations That Built An Empire," which said Trump’s family name was actually “Drumpf.”

The Brewery's website invites most people to try the anti-Drumpf brew:

All are invited and welcomed, no matter what your political views are. Except one person...

Go home man, you're Drumpf.

In related news, that Drumpf episode of "Last Week Tonight" is the most popular in the history of the John Oliver show. CNN:

The "Donald Drumpf" segment is Oliver's most popular video by far, with 23.3 million YouTube views so far.

It has almost doubled the previous record-holder on Oliver's YouTube page, a dissection of the FIFA scandal, which has 12.5 million views. Five other episodes have cracked the 10 million mark.

On Facebook, it has received 62 million views to date.

With 85 million video views combined, "this is a record for any piece of HBO content," according to a network spokesman.
