The UK-based 'Hardknott Brewery' released a new atomic bomb-themed beer that comes with an important message about the devastating impact of nuclear warfare. The new beer is intended to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the 1945 bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasak. The beer highlights this dark moment in history and reminds drinkers of the devastating consequences of this specific type of warfare.
The new beer is called 'Nuclear Sunset' and Brewery founder David Bailey explains that the brew is designed to "commemorate the awful loss of life during the first and only military deployment of nuclear weapons." The controversial pilsner is not intended to dispel the benefits of nuclear power, but rather to recognize this specific tragedy and to remind the public about the impact of nuclear warfare.
