US RE­TAILER Wal­mart is be­ing sued for in­vent­ing a fake craft brew­ery.

In an at­tempt to be hip, and slap up the prices on its mass pro­duced beers, the re­tailer started sell­ing its own line of bou­tique beers in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the brewer Trou­ble Brew­ing.

The only ‘trou­ble’ with this was that the com­pany sim­ply didn’t ex­ist.

Ac­cord­ing to US Gov­ern­ment fil­ings the beer was made by WX Brands in Costa Rica, known for pro­duc­ing “cheap col­legeparty sta­ples”.

The law­suit it seek­ing dam­ages for those who bought the se­cond rate brew.
