Dallas just fired back at Weyerbacher's anti-Cowboys beer – lehighvalleylive.com

Weyerbacher Brewing has set off a battle of the beers in the NFC East. 

The Easton-based brewery released its new Dallas Sucks pale ale last month in hopes of bringing together (most of) the NFC East in common cause: Hating the Cowboys. 

The beer earned national attention and set off bitter reactions from Cowboys fans. Now, one Dallas brewery has taken the response a step further by going after the Philadelphia Eagles with a beer of its own. 

Noble Rey Brewing Co. announced Tuesday that it will fire back at Weyerbacher with Eagle Tears, a limited edition gose beer set to be released Nov. 5 in cans and on tap at the brewery’s taproom. That’s two weeks before the Cowboys and the Eagles meet in Dallas on Nov. 19. 

“When we heard some guys from PA made a beer called ‘Dallas Sucks’, we did what we do best…make a better beer w/ a better name, & a WAY BETTER DESIGN!!!” the brewery posted on Facebook and Instagram. 

The beer’s label design depicts a bawling bird in front of an Eagle-green backdrop. 

The gose beer has 6 percent alcohol by volume. While the beer will be released exclusively at Noble Rey’s facility in Dallas, Eagles-haters far and wide are already clamoring for a chance to try it themselves. Noble Rey, a small brewery, said it has no plans for a wider release, but might expand its run with another batch later in the year.

Weyerbacher is tasking the response in stride. The brewery’s chief operating officer, Joshua Lampe, told Guidelive that the brewery had hoped for a friendly rivalry, and had even reached out to some Dallas breweries with no response. 

And to demonstrate that the rivalry is good-natured, Weyerbacher says it will donate a portion of the proceeds from Dallas Sucks sales to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, according to Guidelive. 

For now, Philadelphia fans can let the records speaks
