Still looking for the perfect "guy" present? Well look no further for the coolest sweatshirt in all the land. From the Mad Brewers of Fredrick, Maryland comes the Flying Dog 'The Hoodie That Says It All' ($44).
A brief history lesson: Ralph Steadman, artist for small-time writer, Hunter S. Thompson, hooked with with the owners of Flying Dog, and captured the gonzo spirit as it translates to beer. In the beginning of the Steadman/FD relationship, they took his art and put it on their Road Dog Porter, emblazoned with the logo, "Good Beer, No Shit." This ruffled some feathers at the Colorado Liquor Board, who then attempted to censor the phrase. They called it obscenity and pulled it off the market. With some help from the ACLU, after a four year legal battle, free speech won.
So rock your love of the 1st amendment and good beer - massive win/win!
