BrewDog then tweeted that it would run a promotion offering free beer to anyone who “supports LOVE not hate.”
For its part, Scofflaw tweeted that it also had no prior knowledge of the promotion and was working with its PR company to “fix this error.”
Brewdog and Scofflaw initially announced a partnership in late 2017, giving Scofflaw access to the brewing and canning operation at BrewDog USA's new state-of-the-art U.S. headquarters near Columbus, Ohio.
The agreement, which was reached by James Watt, co-founder and CEO at BrewDog, and Matt Shirah, co-founder and president of Scofflaw, includes an expansion that will increase Scofflaw’s capacity to 30,000 barrels annually at its Atlanta brewery.
Scofflaw is the latest Atlanta brewery to come under fire of late due to political issues. Monday Night Brewing received some negative attention on social media earlier this month after agreeing to host an event for Republican gubernatorial candidate Brain Kemp.
