Duquesne Brewing Company announced its “Paterno Legacy Series” beer earlier this year. Pre-sales have been going extremely well. The company expected to sell out an initial run of 500 barrels. They have already sold 2,800 barrels, without offering it in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh. They will be offering it in kegs and local bars.

If you’re wondering what this beer tastes like, it’s “very, very drinkable.”

“Basically, it’s a red lager with a mild caramel taste, very smooth,” Dudash said. “We used 100 percent two-row barley. It gives you a really smooth taste with no aftertaste on your tongue.

“It’s smooth as silk. It’s not going to be overly hopped, but it’s going to have a mild bite to it, just enough. It’s going to be a very, very drinkable beer that you can just enjoy.”

Sounds perfect to drown out the fact your storied football program’s clear, blatant misconduct allowed a serial child rapist to carry on in public for more than a decade.
