Speaking of re-defining the term “harm” …

Happy hump day with a new beer release!!!

FUCK PG&E is a classic California pale ale, featuring Cashmere and Simcoe hops and a touch of malt sweetness. Coming in at 5.8%, come try it for happy hour!!!!

aaaaaand… the obligatory apology letter;

I recently released a beer called “Fuck PG&E” and it seems it’s upset some people. …[the name was] chosen in some contempt for the corporation itself… trial for negligence …loss of 22 people, 5,643 structures, 1.2 billion in damages, and the burning of 36,000 acres in my hometown alone…

…We even have some regulars that are employed by PG&E, who understood the beer name’s meaning and found it hilarious. …

After that well-written, clarifying, educating, and honest post came this:

You may not have intended to Harm the Hard Working PG&E Employees Whom Give Their ALL and More….
“But YOU Have !!!!”
They endure Horrific moments by the Public as they Work to Help One and All. You didn’t harm the Corporation… Only the Employees … [sic]

It goes on for another coupla paragraphs in the same …style yet nowhere is the “harm” described or defined.

Hence the ‘promotion’ to Harm™

Aside:

The Democratic Socialists of America are having a rally to call for the nationalization [state-ization?] of the utility.

…because they’ve never heard of Venezuela.

    Ah, the Robert DeNiro gambit, only instead of aimed at President Trump, it’s aimed at PG&E.

    Note to PG&E: Cut the power, say fuck you and close.
