Bitter, Lebron-inspired brew re-released
CLEVELAND -- A Cleveland brewery is re-releasing a bitter beer inspired by LeBron James' decision to leave the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.
Great Lakes Brewing Co. says 30 gallons of "Quitness" ale sold out in three hours Wednesday at the company's downtown brewpub.
The beer will return Saturday on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The brewery says "Quitness" is a dry hopped India pale ale that leaves a bitter aftertaste, perfectly describing the mood of Cleveland sports fans these days.
After seven seasons and no championships in Cleveland, James, the NBA's two-time reigning MVP, announced last week he was joining stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.
