Best Little Bitch

Crooked Fence's Little Bitch Otter beer

Staff Pick

The bottle for Crooked Fence's India brown ale shows a scowling cartoon otter dressed in a cowboy hat and tie. But the fuss over the brew had nothing to do with the bottle's adorable illustration. It was all in the name: Little Bitch Otter. A jab at Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter, who asked the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to put a hold on legalizing gay marriage back in May, the beer was released to show support for marriage equality and Idaho's LGBT community. Crooked Fence earmarked 10 percent of the proceeds from the Little Bitch Otter release party for LGBT advocacy groups Pride Foundation and Add the Words. Idaho's same-sex marriage case was heard by the 9th Circuit in early September, with a ruling expected sometime this fall. Otter has vowed to take the fight to the Supreme Court of the United States, so hang onto those bottles of Little Bitch--you might need them for a celebration (hopefully not to drown your sorrows). crookedfencebrewing.com
