The Houston Astros cheating scandal has faded out of the spotlight due to MLB's current shutdown. Yet many have not forgotten what took place and are just waiting for the opportunity to boo and hate on the team.

The Departed Soles Brewing Company in New Jersey decided to troll the Astros with a beer called "Trash Can Banger." It's simple and funny -- not that big of a deal. However, some Astros fans are not understanding the humor and are trying to ruin the brewery's business.

Once again, this is a Jersey brewery. This has no effect on the lives of Astros fans, but here we are. What was meant to be a simple joke has gone way too far because some fans just lack a sense of humor.

Sometimes you need to bend the rules a little to Marwin the day, so we're up and at 'em a little earlier than we should be, getting a fresh new Hazy IPA in cans Justin time for a surprise Sunday release! Some of you may have already gotten the Signs that this was coming today, but beer releases are like a pitcher's arsenal, and you never really know what's coming and when... unless, of course, you cheat. When this pandemic first struck, much of our staff worked from home, while Brian rededicated himself to the Art of Brewing.. rewatching brewing school classes, reading new studies, and pouring over interviews, trying to Luhn(h)ow we could improve our efficiencies and processes. The result is a Fiers new approach to everything we do, from mashing in, to dry hopping, water treatments to canning, and everything in between. And, well, we don't mean to breg, man, but this new beer is Reddickulous, and you won't want to miss it! Brewed with Citra in our whirlpool, and given a touch of milk sugar for complexity, this juice bomb was twice dry hopped... first with more Citra, then with 2017 grams per barrel of Galaxy and Strata Hops... and just like an Asteroid, the flavor is out of this world! Like a craft beer Minute Made orange juice, to enjoy at a Park this fine day! Need some #TrashCanBanger in your life? Maybe Collin a favor with a friend if you're stuck in Correa, to have 'em pick you up some, or Cora ride share from Dallas to the brewery. If all else fails, throw a Belt & ran to the brewery, with a little Springer in your step, to be here at noon when we open up and release it to the world... Assuming our canning run goes off without a Hinch, 4 packs of this new #DefinitelyNotGlutenFree Banger will be available at noon for $17. Set your alarm to buzz, or tape an electrode to your chest to make sure you don't forget! The show Musgrove on! We're open from noon until 8pm, accepting same day delivery orders up until 4pm. Usual minimums, fees, etc. apply! Menu in story.

That is an amazing can design! New Jersey is nowhere close to Texas geographically and the fact this has angered Astros fans just goes along with the team's strategy of never properly acknowledging the cheating that took place. This is not going to magically go away and Astros fans, and the team, are in for far worse than an IPA.
