GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Short’s Brewery in Northern Michigan is taking advantage of the news surrounding the recently discovered batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

The emails were found on the computer of former congressman Anthony Weiner. His estranged wife, Huma Abedin, is a top aide to Clinton.

By chance, Short’s has a beer called Huma Lupa Licious. So they send out a tongue-in-cheek statement this week:

“Over the past week, Short’s Brewing Company has received thousands of emails and phone calls about Huma’s involvement in the FBI investigation that led to the discovery of new emails potentially related to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State. Recent quotes from GOP candidate Donald Trump: “Thank you, Huma. Good job, Huma” have put Huma at the center of this heated political debacle.”
