New Zealand Beer Company's Cheeky Dig At Aussie Cricketer Steve Smith

New Zealand Beer Company's Cheeky Dig At Aussie Cricketer Steve Smith

It pains us to say this, but well played Behemoth Brewing... well played.

The New Zealand-based beer company have taken a savage dig at our Aussie cricketers.

More specifically, they've taken aim at the individuals involved in the notorious 'Sandpapergate scandal' from 2018 which saw Steve Smith, David Warner, Cameron Bancroft and former coach Darren Lehmann all slapped with lengthy bans for ball tampering.

So to celebrate the Kiwis' recent T20 victory over Australia, Behemoth Brewing have released a new beer simply called "There's No Crying In Cricket".


Why? Well for some context, it's a clear nod to Smith, Warner, Bancroft and Lehmann who all shed a tear or two during their emotional press conferences following their punishments.

Cheeky from Behemoth, very cheeky indeed.


And to top it off, they're shipping 100 cases of the exclusive IPA to Australian shores.

"We wanted to have it out in time to send to the Aussie lads in quarantine while they were here," Company founder Andrew Childs told AAP.

"We didn't quite have it ready in time.

"So now it's a nice way to celebrate the series win for New Zealand. They don't happen that often.


"As the old adage goes, New Zealanders support two teams. New Zealand and anyone facing Australia."

This isn't the first time Behemoth Brewing have been bang on the money with their references.

During Donald Trump's impeachment trial, they released an "Im-peach-ment" peach sour ale and an American pale ale titled "Dump The Trump".
