Finnish brewery produces limited edition of ‘problem solving beer’, to mark Trump, Putin Summit in Helsinki

Ahead of Monday’s summit in Helsinki Finland between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, a Finnish brewery has released a limited-edition “problem-solving” beer to commemorate the event.

The beer, released by Rock Paper Scissors Indie Brewery, depicts the two leaders playing rock paper scissors with the tagline “Let’s Settle This Like Adults” and “Making Lager Great Again.”

The brewery launched 10,000 bottles on July 11 and reportedly sold out in a few days, The UK’s Sky News reported on Sunday.

Bottles were also sent to the both the U.S. and Russian embassies in Helsinki, where the two presidents will be meeting on Monday.

The company also released limited-edition specialty coffee.

“With rock paper scissors, we have solved all kinds of problems and since we know everything there is to know about solving problems, we decided President Putin and Trump maybe needed to know this secret source of problem solving,” RPS Brewing CEO Samuli Huuhtanen told Sky News.

“A couple good beers can help any negotiations,” he added.

Trump and Putin: meeting in Helsinki Monday

Trump arrived in Helsinki on Sunday for the summit, days after 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted by the Justice Department for hacking into the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump’s summit with Putin has left some lawmakers and administration officials anxious. Trump has been condemned for maintaining a generally friendly air with the Russian leader and a number of lawmakers are pressing the president to take a hardline stance with Putin over Russian election meddling.

The visit also comes after Trump’s four-day visit to the United Kingdom, where he met with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II before heading to his Turnberry Golf Resort in Scotland.

A Scottish beer company trolled Trump’s visit to their country. Scotland’s Tennent’s Lager released tiny cans of beer in honour of Trump’s arrival, a hint at the long-running joke about the size of Trump’s hands.
