Here are two beers with added . . . seafood. The first is Budweiser with Clamato. The second is Stout brewed with Oysters. The clam label provides an early example of allergen labeling.
With oregano, basil, tomato and garlic added to this beer, it must might be good. In fact, the label proclaims it to be so good “It Deserves…A Wine Glass”. Sadly, there is no word yet about whether this wine — “Wine That Loves Pizza” — is good enough to deserve a wine glass.
Wine and brandy don’t seem especially sinful to us. But that apparently doesn’t stop lots of companies from portraying these products as evil or sinful. TTB approves about 100,000 alcohol beverage products per year, year in and year out, and a large percentage of these come equipped with references to sin, the devil, skulls and crossbones, and illegality.
