Fear and Loathing in Michigan: Flying Dog brewery is suing to overturn the ban of its Raging Bitch Ale by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, which was denied a license on the grounds that its label, designed by Ralph Steadman, was “detrimental to the public health, safety and welfare.” Steadman, famous for illustrating Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and other Hunter S. Thompson works, responds to the ban:

Freedom of speech and artistic expression is as fundamental to our being as the alphabet itself.

Founded by Thompson associate George Stranahan, Flying Dog also seeks damages for lost revenue in Michigan of the brewer’s best-selling product.
