Carleton Place – After only one day on shelves, a beer from Stalwart Brewing Co. has been discontinued by the LCBO.

Dr. Feelgood IPA, which was for sale as of yesterday at many Ottawa-area LCBO stores, was removed from all stores today due to label artwork concern.

“Rooted in a concern for public safety, the LCBO has interpreted our beer to be labeled as medicine, which is prohibited by provincial legislation. The reference to the Rod of Aesculapius from Greek mythology and the intersection of the letters R and X (a shorthand for “to take” in Latin) are their points of concern,” writes Stalwart Brewing in a statement on social media.

“Rx” is typically associated with prescription medicine.

The LCBO greenlighted the beer and its artwork three times over a nine month approval process, says the brewery, giving it formal approval in October 2017.

Dr. Feelgood IPA was the brewery’s first product to be available at the LCBO.

Stalwart Brewing notes they are scrambling to replace labels on 5,000 cans.
