Title: ‘Sweet Baby Jesus’ beer pulled from Ohio grocery store shelves

A Cleveland-based grocery chain has yanked a popular beer after one too many customers complained about its name: Sweet Baby Jesus.

The chocolate and peanut butter porter, released two years ago by Baltimore-based DuClaw Brewing Co., started selling in Ohio just two months ago. But now, after hearing from customers who said they were offended by its name, Heinen’s Grocery Store, which has 22 locations in Ohio and Illinois, has pulled it from its shelves, the Baltimore Business Journal reports.

Sweet Baby Jesus accounts for about 35 to 40 percent of DuClaw’s total sales, making it the brewery’s most popular beer.

“When you push boundaries and try to get one group excited about it, inevitably people are going to get upset on one side or the other,” DuClaw founder Dave Benfield told the Business Journal.

He said he’s heard complaints about the name before, but this is the first time the beer has been pulled from an entire chain of stores. 

“We liked the phrase, which, at least to us, is a phrase of excitement or astonishment,” Benfield said.

“It’s not meant to be offensive, it’s not meant to be derogatory. If we thought we’d stepped over the line and offended people, we probably wouldn’t have done it in the first place.”

According to the Baltimore Sun, Sweet Baby Jesus was previously pulled from military bases—but typically restocked a few weeks later. The company has received numerous calls and letters about the name, but Benfield is standing by the label, even though it could impede the brewery’s expansion plans into the Midwest market. 

“We don’t censor ourselves because it might cost us dollars,” he said.

Sweet Baby Jesus is still sold in 18 other locations throughout Ohio. DuClaw is working on expanding into other grocery chains, including Harris Teeter and Kroger in North Carolina, Virginia and Kentucky.

People need to toughen up. ISIS gets mad over the same shit. If you are offended, don't buy the beer.

This companies freedoms are more important than your weak, pathetic feelings.

I'd stop shopping at this chain store, because they caved into the minority... and the weak.

The people who are offended are just going to stop shopping there. Maybe a church vigil or protest.

While I dislike boycotts in general, it seems to me that the Left is so unrelenting about intimidating and co-opting businesses and big corporations, the Right needs to learn to play the outrage theater game as well as the Left has.

Bingo. No need to boycott the store or the manufacturer. The lack of sales sends the stongest message any manufacturer would understand.

Unfortunately, the attitude today is that if some are offended then everyone must pay the price.

No, it won't. The store will benefit from selling its blasphemous beer while the Christians continue to subsidize it.

If the merchant thinks it's fine to insult Christians, let them live off the irreligious customers instead.

American churches have gotten kicked around enough. It's time to recognize that there's no real tolerance or willingness from the Left or these corporations bent on profits from marketing anti-Christian liquor.

No person, group, religion or race is protected or guaranteed to be not verbally "kicked around" in a FREE SOCIETY. Not one constitutional amendment protects against that. I suggest everyone toughen up, that included ALL RELIGIONS, races and terrorist groups.

"sweet baby Jesus" is a southern phrase... and my freedom to say it, sell it or buy it out rumps your feelings.

Fine. Then you and the irreligious can all support the local stores who choose to carry your intentionally blasphemous beer.

Good luck with that.

Naming a beer "sweet baby Jesus" is not hostile towards religion...suck it up, TC. You sound like ISIS.

Because people like it ... and you think they shouldn't ... and you're going to take it away from them to show them the error of their ways.

The merchant didn't make the beer or label it. For you, he's simply the most convenient and easiest target. Why not the producer of the beer?

Yea, let’s stop selling this product and then move on to clean the shelves of 20 more tacky religious products that are guaranteed to anger God.

Get organized into groups to destroy these products, even title the unified event as “Christianallnacht” … that would sound appropriate.

Maybe people accept they can't stop the company but they don't want it shoved in their faces when they buy groceries.

Plenty of liquor stores can still sell it. Or groceries that don't want Christian customers.

Puh-leeze. What a drama queen.

I guess you wanna play Victim Of The Hour because your local grocery might stop selling a blasphemous beer.

Hell, if it was a truly worthwhile or original beer, it wouldn't need a blasphemous name to sell it.

Suck it up, heathen. Or be prepared support the merchants who sell it along with your fellow-blasphemers. Why should Christians support a store that mocks their religion so that hostile elements like you are free to buy their blasphemy beer conveniently?

Come on. Religion is shoved in many faces, unwanted around this country. People at your door, bumper stickers, signs... for all the agnostic to read. EVERYONE needs to suck it up and be more tolerant towards anything that's LEGAL... like the name of a beer or a religious bumper sticker. Black and white... no hypocrisy.

We've evolved into a weak intolerant society.

Has nothing to do with drama... and everything to do with your hypocrisy.

Non threatening verbal or printed speech IS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT. Even if it offends you.

I haven't suggested otherwise.

Christians are equally free to boycott stores that carry blasphemous products.

Freedom: you just don't like it unless you can force Christians to purchase goods from stores with blasphemous goods.

So, if a store chose to carry a large selection of dildos and hardcore smut, would Christians have any right not to shop there? After all, those are also perfectly legal products. How about a store that carries a (perfectly legal) Virgin Mary sex doll to sell to the pervs? Should Granny from the local church have any right not to shop there and see that?

I never claimed you did, nor do I deny any group to "boycott". I condemned the store for being weak and caving into your intolerance.

My point is we all need to be thicker skinned if you want to hold on to our freedoms. YOU CANT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS (see my original post)

It's not your objection. Your objection is understandable. It's your solution.

I say don't buy the product. You say shut down the manufacturer or, failing that, shut down the distribution channels.

This one product accounts for about 35 to 40 percent of total sales. Obviously it's popular with many people. And you want to deny THEM because it offends YOU.

That's what liberals do.

I never said to shut down the brewer. And the 35-40% is the share of DuClaw brewers total market offerings.

The grocery store was that Heinen's chain. And this is apparently going to spoil DuClaw's efforts to try to expand into even more grocery chains where they can insult even more Christians by catering to beer drinkers who want to swill down a little blasphemy along with their alcohol.

And Heinen's is a distribution channel. So I am advocating what you suggested. You just don't like it (or perhaps don't understand who the brewer and the vendors are).

"I never said to shut down the brewer."

Then what were you implying when you said, "Maybe people accept they can't stop the company ..."?

I took that to mean that the best solution is to shut down the company, but people accept that won't be possible.
