Fairport Brewery Issues Apology, Lifts Ban on Dark Beers

Fairport, NY – The owners of Fairport Brewing Company have admitted that one of their employees was involved in the tearing down of “Black Lives Matters” posters and issued an apology. The Inner Loop Blog was messaged the following early draft of the apology from an unverified source from a beer rating website ‘IPAsMakeIPee.’ 

“We at FBC are all about diversity, that’s why in addition to our donation to BLM, we’ve decided to start brewing darker ales, stouts and maybe even a few browns. FBC prefers to call the browns, amber ales so as not to make the locals nervous. Previously, it was the brewery’s decision to stick to lighter, wheat, or white beers. We personally believe that they’re far superior to the darker ales. A lot of the lighter beers such as the pilsners or Hefeweizens are from Germany and we love Germany’s long rich history especially the years from 1933-1945. But in light of recent events, we have changed our stance on that. We hope that the community sees this as growth and continues to drink our very mediocre beer.

Kappell/Warren Hearings Come to Halt After the Former Meteorologist Tries to Use the Word “Niggardly”

Rochester, NY – Former News10 WHEC meteorologist Jeremy Kappell has taken Mayor Lovely Warren to court over her statements following his televised “linguistic flub” where he “accidentally” said a racial slur.

Kappell’s attorney alleges the Mayor put pressure on his former employer by calling for his firing and that his client was terminated 18 minutes after the mayor’s Facebook post was published.

Sources tell The InnerLoop Blog that closed-door hearings have come to a screeching halt after Kappell described the City of Rochester refusing to pay restitution as “niggardly.”

This was the proper use of the word which the dictionary defines as “not generous; stingy.” Unfortunately, Kappell’s voice did slip a little bit and it may have sounded like he switched the ‘ar’ sound to a hard ‘er’ sound.

His representation says this is a huge misunderstanding and that Kappell had a frog in his throat.
