‘Woke-free’ Bud Light beer alternative Ultra Right rakes in $500,000 in just 12 hours after releasing special edition can with Trump mugshot
A “woke-free” beer created to rival Bud Light made half a million dollars in 12 hours after it released a special can featuring former President Donald Trump’s mugshot.
Seth Weathers, CEO of Ultra Right Beer, shared this FOX business that post-launch sales of the special edition were equivalent to more than five tractor loads of cans.
“We knew people would go wild for these collectible cans, but we had no idea the response would be so crazy,” the businessman said.
He described the beer cans called “Conservative Dad’s Revenge” as the most sought-after collectible beer can in American history.
‘Sales have been pouring in from the moment we launched. “With more than $1 million in beer and merchandise sales, we raised more than $50,000 for the legal defense of Georgia Trump voters and the Georgia Republican Party,” said Weathers.
Ultra Right Beer launched a special edition can featuring Donald Trump’s mugshot. The six-packs will be sold through October 1st for $25.00 plus shipping
Seth Weathers, known as “Conservative Dad,” founded the company as an alternative to “woke” Bud Light
The beer company’s website promises to donate 10 percent of sales to the GOP defense fund in Georgia.
“Conservative Dad’s Ultra Right Beer puts our money where our mouth is – doing our part to fight back against the unjust persecution of American patriots,” Weathers said.
Featuring Trump’s historic mugshot in black and white on a black background and the words “100% American Beer,” the cans cost $25 for a six-pack plus shipping.
Weathers further predicted that sales will likely surpass $2 million on Sunday at 11:59 p.m., when the special edition officially goes off the market.
Trump made history by becoming the first former president to pose for a mugshot after his arrest for trying to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia.
He has denied guilty of the charges and has used the photo to raise money for his campaign.
Although it claims it is not endorsed by Trump, the website repeats the narrative that he is under fire from corrupt, politically motivated forces seeking to sabotage his 2024 bid for the White House.
They are sold online with the caption: “Each sale defends conservatives against unconstitutional prosecution by Fulton County’s communist district attorney!”
Mulvaney teamed up with Bud Light in April as part of their March Madness campaign and was gifted a can of light beer with her face on it
Weathers managed Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign in Georgia, where his company is headquartered.
He founded the beer company to protest Bud Light’s Dylan Mulvaney’s “woke” marketing campaign.
In April, Bud Light teamed up with the trans influencer and sent her a personalized can with her face on it for their March Madness NCAA campaign.
Conservatives were outraged and when they boycotted the brand, sales of the beer plummeted. Liberals accused the company of not doing enough to stand in solidarity with her.
Anheuser-Busch has since added more than $27 billion in market value and two of its top executives have taken a “leave of absence.”
Just 12 days after the Ultra Right Beer company launched in April, Weathers said it had gained more than 12,000 customers and sold 20,000 six-packs.
