Departed Soles Brewing Company in New Jersey is as upset with the Houston Astros brazenly cheating their way to two AL Pennants in three years as the rest of baseball fans, and they've taken their frustration to new heights.

The brewery created a special new IPA to show just what they think of that bunch, by releasing a "Trash Can Banger" IPA, which you can buy for just $17, a price point which can't be a coincidence.

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.

2017 grams of hops per barrel is a nice touch, even if it could make the drink taste insanely overpowering.

Yankee fans will clearly be buying up this beer as frequently as possible. On top of it potentially tasting great, they might have some interesting ammo to throw at Astros players whenever they come to the Bronx.

The Jersey City Brewery likely supports the Yankees, and even if they don't, this is a genius business decision to get diehards in the New York/New Jersey area on board with their anti-Astros campaign. Looks like Dodgers, Indians, Rays, Mariners, Angels, Rangers and Athletics fans are about to place an online order...
