Brewery culture remains a cesspool of sexism, racism, and libertarianism. It’s no wonder that women brewers quit because they outshine men and make them look bad, that misogyny remains a thing on beer labels, that these are often nearly all-white spaces if not actually all-white, and that these people hate unions with the heat of a thousand suns. So I was far from surprised to hear the owner of Threes Brewing in Brooklyn have a, uh, less than reasonable take on vaccine mandates.
The chief executive of a popular brewery in Brooklyn, who attracted wide criticism last month when he called coronavirus vaccine mandates a “crime against humanity” and drew comparisons to the Jim Crow South and Nazi Germany, is leaving his post, the company announced on Tuesday.
In a statement posted on its social media accounts, the company, Threes Brewing, said the executive — Josh Stylman, one of the brewery’s founders — had decided to resign.
“This decision was not made lightly, and comes after careful consideration,” Threes Brewing said. “He believes that his fiduciary responsibilities as C.E.O. of Threes Brewing are in conflict with his duties as a parent and a citizen.”
Tell me, is a safe and effective vaccine that keeps people alive more akin to lynching or to gas chambers? Logical Conclusion indeed.
