The beer itself has received tremendous publicity, most of which came as a result of the beer being banned in Ohio. Buried in the fine print of the Ohio administrative code is "Rule 44" which specifically states: "No nakedness. No obscenity. And, Nothing sensual." They really know how to have fun in the ole Bible Belt. Mari-jean Siehl, deputy director in the Ohio Liquor Control Department, said the ruling was no close call, stating "clearly, a frog with his middle finger up is unacceptable." One might argue the fact that with only four digits, the frog couldn’t possibly be flipping us off with his middle (word middle in italics and bold) finger. Other states have jumped on the frog-control bandwagon and have ultimately forced the brewery to remove the slogan stating, "He’s mean, green and obscene." Consequently, the beer is being bought up from collectors around the country as the brewery has been allowed to use up it’s existing inventory of the original labels. So keep your bottles, they may be worth absolutely nothing someday. The Bad Frog Brewing Co. has actually filed for patent to the "flipping of the bird" and hopes that someday walking into a bar and flipping off the bartender will be synonymous with ordering a Bad Frog Beer. Wauldron has already come out with a complementary malt liquor and has plans to introduce two more specialty beers this year.
