Gender ID Needed To Buy Beer
A man in Wales sued a brewery claiming that he was "forced" to identify as a woman to buy a beer. To
celebrate International Women’s Day, the brewery and pub chain BrewDog, the infamous outfit that once
killed squirrels to serve as packaging for their not very good beer, introduced the so-called Pink IPA. It
was the same exact beer as the company’s popular Punk IPA, but it was sold to women for 20 percent
less. The campaign was allegedly an attempt to highlight the gender pay gap.  Plaintiff Dr. Thomas
Bower said he asked to buy the Pink IPA at one of BrewDog’s locations in Cardiff, Wales, but the
bartender would not sell him the beer at the discounted price, While he could still buy the Punk IPA
Bower wanted to purchase the cheaper drink (the Pink cost about $5, and the Punk cost about $6).They
continued to refuse to sell him the beer for the lower price if he did not  identify as female, The company
said it wasn't discrimination because the price difference was part of a campaign to raise awareness
about the gender pay gap  Bower took BrewDog, which is based in Scotland, to small claims court for
“direct discrimination and breach of the Equality Act 2010,According to court documents", Judge Robert
Philips agreed that Bower was discriminated against because of his gender and awarded him over
$1,200 which Bower donated  to charity. He also sent equal amounts to the Young Women’s Trust..
Beer AppTracks the Military and CIA
A beer networking app with millions of followers inadvertently allowed security researchers to track
military and intelligence personnel, including at a top secret CIA facility. Researchers with the group
Bellingcat discovered check-ins at places as diverse as the Pentagon, Germany, and Greenland. The
researchers also discovered shared photos that included shots of government ID cards, documents,
and military hardware. The data could be used to reconstruct travel and work habits of military and
intelligence personnel, including precise locations.The beer rating app Untappd has a big following in
the U.S. and Europe, Users rate beers and most importantly share that information with others. Untappd
has 8 million users, including those in armed forces and intelligence agencies worldwide. .Mr. Brewski
says when posting on untappd, do not include credit cards or top secret documents in picture

Unintended Consequences
Pastor Todd Barker of Canyon, Texas took out a prominent newspaper ad that began with the words,
“Craft beer is the devil’s craft,” it was a very on-brand decision. Barker is a Baptist teetotaler, and
countering the evils of alcohol is a centerpiece of his ministry. The newly opened local watering hole he
was targeting, the Imperial Taproom, honored his printed ad as a coupon valued at $1 — and that
eventually led to the bar being the most popular in the local community.
