Lone Star Beer and Blackened Voodoo


Recommended Posts

Back in 1991, the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission banned New Orleans-brewed “Blackened Voodoo” beer on the grounds that it was satanic. In a letter to the brewery, the TABC said, "We feel this kind of label and name would be detrimental to the industry as would witchcraft and other cult organizations." In retaliation, the Louisiana legislature threatened to ban Lone Star, which I guess was a nice compliment for Lone Star in that it acknowledged the beer as the signature Texas beverage, but still ... annoying. Texas eventually dropped the ban and Louisiana reciprocated, once again making it okay to drink Lone Star beer on Bourbon Street.
