BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Maryland brewery is responding after a western Massachusetts brewery released 12,000 brewed and canned beers with the question “Is Joe Flacco elite?” stamped on the bottom.
Eastern shore’s RaR brewery in Cambridge, Md. retaliated on the question, by releasing cans of beer with “Don’t worry bout Joe” stamped on the bottom.
The brewery even took the photo, with AL East standings in the background. The O’s are currently in second place, with the Boston Red Sox in third. Yankees currently are in first place.
In past seasons, the “elite” debate has appeared on teammates T-shirts, been featured in a nationwide poll and was even asked of President Donald Trump.
Andrew Pillsbury, Tree House packing line operator, told ESPN’s Jamison Hensley, “In the regular season, he doesn’t look too elite. But sometimes he comes through there in the playoffs and it gives us a little scare. But we got Tom Brady, so we’re not really worried.”
Last season Flacco posted a career high and franchise record of 4,317 passing yards. Flacco has led Baltimore to a Super Bowl win, and to the postseason in six of his nine years as the Ravens’ starter.
Tree House even sent some cans of beer to the Ravens’ Maryland facility.
