Hello, My Name is Vladimir

Not for gays

Hello, My Name is Vladimir

You can buy some Hello, My Name is Vladimir here


Hello, my name is Vladimir. I am a beer for uber hetero men who ride horses while topless and carrying knives. I am a beer to mark the 2014 Winter Olympics. But I am not for gays. Love wrestling burly men on the Judo mat or fishing in your Speedos? Then this is the beer for you!


The sick, twisted legislation brought about in Russia that prevents people from living their true lives is something we didn't want to just sit back and not have an opinion on. Our core beliefs are freedom of expression, freedom of speech and a dogged (no pun intended) passion for doing what we love. Thus, we are donating 50% of the profits from this beer to charitable organisations that support like minded individuals wishing to express themselves freely without prejudice.


This beer is a double IPA brewed with Limonnik berries. We heard they're great for improving sexual performance, so we've sent a case to the Kremlin as we suspect there is someone there who would appreciate a little helping hand.


Grab a bottle of Hello, My Name is Vladimir from the BrewDog shop here

Always felt there was something a bit gay about poor Vladimir. This should help him understand why he likes topless riding and Speedos.Good one guys, you nailed it

I support a free world where we are not told by political clowns who tell us what they think is good for us or not. We are living in 2014, and not in 1914, I support this action!
