 Top Totty beer banned from Parliamentary bar in case if offends women

You remember the story from a week or two ago concerning the beer called “Top Totty” which was banned in the bar at the House of Commons because it..heaven forbid…offended some feministas? Now read on…

“A feminist campaign which led to “Top Totty” beer being banned from the House Of Commons bar has backfired – after sales increased across the country.  Family-run Staffordshire brewer Slater’s revealed it has seen sales jump since one of its ales upset a MP Kate Green and attracted headlines around the world last week. Slater’s sales director Fay Slater announced that the firm has been bombarded with phone calls and emails from landlords wanting to get their hands on barrels of Top Totty. The welcome boost for the popular ale comes after the four per cent beer was removed from sale at the Strangers’ Bar, in the Houses of Parliament, after shadow equalities minister Ms Green said the pump clip, which features a half-naked lady, was offensive. Now Slater’s says it has sold around 50 more barrels than it shifts in an average week, with around half a dozen pubs saying they want to start selling the controversial ale too.

That seems like a good result, don’t you think?

  1. Even funnier. The brewery sent a replacement ale to the HOC bar. It’s called ‘Kangaroo Court’. Pity they didn’t send one called ‘idiot feminista’ or’twisted bitter old hag’. I suppose they were being a tad subtle.
    Reportedly (Guido Fawkes) KC is very popular (as was Top Totty before it.)

  2. One small (backwards) step for feminists………….One giant leap for Beerkind!

    Enjoy your “toddy Schadenfreude” .. Slater’s family!

  3. It just shows that any publicity is good publicity.

    New strapline: “Top Totty – the beer they tried to ban!”

  4. I wonder what the reaction would be to a whisky whose advertising displayed an erection and the, ahem, strapline read, “Time for a stiff one”.
