Even breweries are making fun of the sign-stealing Houston Astros.

Departed Soles Brewery, based in Jersey City, New Jersey, has released a new hazy IPA called the Trash Can Banger. And yes, you guessed it, it is very clearly inspired by the Astros.

Trash Can Banger beer?! Yes, it's real. It's from @DepartedSoles. Tell the nearest Yankees or Dodgers fan. https://t.co/OArkTp6yNQ

In the Instagram post unveiling the new brew, Departed Soles had some fun describing its latest concoction: "Some of you may have already gotten the Signs that this was coming today, but beer releases are like a pitcher's arsenal, and you never really know what's coming and when... unless, of course, you cheat."

They added: "And, well, we don't mean to breg, man, but this new beer is Reddickulous, and you won't want to miss it!"

The puns were flowing like an open tap. They didn't mention any ideal food or snack pairings, but the concept alone might be enough to help New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers fans wash away the bitter taste from their mouths.
