When Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper refused to answer a question regarding his favorite beer by saying those now-infamous words -- "That's a clown question, bro" -- he was, it seems, shutting down any notion that he partakes in any sort of illegal activity.
Even though he is legal drinking age in Canada.
But Denver Beer Co.'s Charlie Berger says that wasn't what Harper, 19, was saying at all. Reports Cafe Society on Westword.com:
What most people don't know, insists the Denver Beer Co.'s Charlie Berger, is that Harper was actually answering that clown question by naming his favorite beer -- even if he didn't know it. "You just have to change the emphasis of the words in his comment," Berger says.
And so, Denver Beer Co. is creating a Harper-inspired beer, appropriately a Canadian lager called "Clown Question, Bro."
The beer will be ready June 25, which happens to be the start of a four-game series against the Colorado Rockies.
Harper will not be able to legally drink it.
