"A brewery has launched a low alcohol beer called Nanny State after being "branded irresponsible for creating the UK's "strongest beer". Scottish brewer BrewDog, of Fraserburgh, was criticised for Tokyo* which has an alcohol content of 18.2%. " BrewDog founder James Watt explained on his blog: "Anyone who knows BrewDog, knows beer, or anyone has more common sense than a common (or garden) gnome will know that the scathing and unrelenting criticism we faced was pretty unjustified. "If logic serves the same people who witch-hunted and publicly slated us should now offer us heartfelt support and public congratulations. "However I fear that this, unfortunately, is an arena devoid of logic and reason." Nanny State is described as a "mild imperial ale containing more hops per barrel than any other beer ever brewed in the UK". http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/north_east/8278312.stm And launched during the Labour Party conference too. Tsk tsk.
