Love Tom Brady? Then stay away from Wee Mac Scottish Ale, which has a simple message on the bottom of 20,000 cans: "Tom Brady Sux." Not surprisingly, the brewer behind the prank supplies beer to the Indianapolis Colts' home stadium, Fox News reports. "A SKB employee had fun w the canning date coder," tweeted the Indianapolis beer-maker, Sun King Brewery. "While we don't condoned the message we understand his Colts passion." The three-word missive hit Wee Mac cans right after the Wells Report accused Brady of deflating balls, and the New England Patriots quarterback received a four-game suspension.

"It wasn't an idea we came up with at all," Sun King co-founder Clay Robinson tells the Indianapolis Star. "Every day, we change the thing on the bottom of our cans." Past messages have included "Turn left" or "Go fast" during the Indianapolis 500, one-liners like "Drink and Repeat," or occasionally just "Yummy." The employee behind the Brady message, identified by Sun King only as Biscuit, won't be reprimanded but apparently has to submit message ideas before stamping them on cans from now on. "We were like, 'Oh, wow,'" Robinson says. "We were like, 'What the hell were you thinking?'" (More beer stories.)
