Following the recent news, Lion Brewery Co. is answering the call to “Brew for Ukraine”, an initiative by Ukrainian brewery, Pravda, to brew its Dry-Hopped Golden Ale, Putin Huilo at the Thirty Six Brewlab & Smokehouse brewpub to help raise relief funds for Ukraine.
Pravda Brewery, an award-winning Ukrainian brewery, went viral on social media for its courageous response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. As part of this, Pravda put out a massive call on Instagram inviting the global craft beer community to “Brew for Ukraine” by openly sharing their beer recipes, beer labels and other visuals online to help raise relief funds for Ukraine through brewing their beers.
Lion Brewery Co and Thirty Six will be supporting the initiative with a limited-edition one-off brew, the Putin Huilo. Roughly translating to “Putin is a Dickhead”, it has become a rallying cry for brave Ukrainians who are defending their families, friends, freedom and homeland. A dry-hopped Belgian-style golden ale, Putin Huilo is a beautifully aromatic brew that also has an 8% alcoholic kick.
The beer is currently being brewed at Thirty Six, and a launch date is TBC. When it is ready, the Putin Huilo will be available in-restaurant starting from $11++, and for takeaway starting from $21++.
A donation of $5 per pint, $3 per half-pint and $1 per taster will be deposited to the Red Cross Ukrainian Fund.
