From the moment Bryce Harper put a reporter in his place for asking a dumb question during the Nationals recent trip to Toronto, everyone knew great things were on the horizon. As you have likely heard, a reporter asked Harper on Tuesday if he planned to have a celebratory beer after Washington’s win over the Blue Jays since the drinking age is 18 in Toronto. Harper, who happens to be a Mormon, simply responded by telling him, “That’s a clown question, bro.”

The quote became an instant classic, and the Denver Beer Co. has already put it to good use. According to the Denver Westword, the brewing company has started brewing a Canadian lager called “Clown Question, Bro” that is set to be ready by June 25 when the Nationals visit the Rockies.

“Maybe he’ll come here, although he can’t drink it here,” Denver Brewing Co.’s Charlie Berger said. “It is definitely his favorite beer, and maybe we’ll serve it with a big red clown nose.”

No, it’s not his favorite beer since Harper’s religious beliefs prevent him from imbibing in alcoholic beverages. Still, the beer is another great way to cement that reporter’s question in infamy. First we have the Laser Show insisting he plans to let the reporter have it when the Red Sox go back to Toronto, and now this? As much as I used to hate Harper, this is actually starting to make the kid grow on me.
