In an absolute sexist move, a pub in Gurugram recently launched a new variety of an absurd beer, claiming it to be 'India's first female beer.'
In an assumptious and misogynist claim, the pub on social media advertised the new product as a 'non-bitter beer for women'
The sexist ad read:
"Women don’t generally like bitter beer and that is why they have introduced this lady-friendly beer that is sweet in taste. Gone are the days when beer was called a man’s drink ‘cause it’s bitter and strong’ cause now we have Beer cocktails that are perf for the pretty ladies too!”

This shameful gender-biased distinction in a beverage was not taken well by the netizens who furiously lashed at the pub. Following the dissent, the post was taken down, however, the post instantly garnered attention on social media:

Gurugram brewpub: LET'S MAKE A "FEMALE" BEER BECAUSE WOMEN CAN'T DRINK "BITTER AND STRONG" BEER LIKE MEN. pic.twitter.com/TxpUUhzREZ
As horrific as the entire thing is, that infernal "women's beer" isn't even beer but a beer cocktail. THIS IS ANNOYING ME MORE THAN ANYTHING NOW.— Ram Vaidyanathan (@zoopertrip) July 18, 2019
So they're serving this cocktail in bottles, cuz as per the promo, results are accounted for after 'three botttles' down. And what is 'sulk down any tiger'. I dont want to drink this of it makes my tigress sulk any more. I infact want all the sulking to vanish.— Wills Docker (@willsdocker) July 18, 2019
It's only female beer if having it enables you to mute men who can't stop bragging about their own achievements after drinking male beer.— Sayantan Ghosh (@sayantansunnyg) July 20, 2019
Lulz, what even is a "female beer". Quite a few females I know can out-drink many males in "male beer" contests. pic.twitter.com/L7KKU5OTJH— Wanderer (@DisDatNothin) July 20, 2019
