What is love? In 1989 actor John Cusack defined it by lifting up high a heavy boombox stuffed with a dozen D batteries in the iconic Say Anything — the only way to really get the girl back then. Fast-forward to 2019, and we’ve finally approached a period where family-owned Diebolt Brewing (with a little help from Photoshop) can really make fans giggle with big sex Vladimir Putin reenacting history’s most romantic exchange. Whose love is he trying to win? Whose indeed …

And be on the lookout for a newly tapped session stout: The Vla-di-da-di, We Likes To Party (a 3.2% stout made from the second runnings of Vladislav).
