Otter Beer Causes Stir In Boise

A new beer will hit Boise soon. Crooked Fence Brewery says it will put out Little B**** Otter India Brown Ale next week. Crooked Fence says its beer just so happens to be called Otter beer. “It's not necessarily named after the governor. It is an otter with a cowboy hat, so we're leaving that up to people's interpretations,” said Kelly Knopp, Crooked Fence owner. Knopp also say it's a coincidence that their beer supports equality during the recent same-sex marriage court rulings. “Crooked Fence will always stand for equality and we're always against anyone trying to take away freedoms or rights of individuals,” Knopp said. Customers at Barrel House Pub haven't tried a drop but they say they like the name/Eric Gonzales, KBOI. More here.

DFO: See if you recognize anyone in the video — about the 00:58 second mark.

Question: Do you think the name for this India Brown Ale is disrespectful?
