Crazy HorseMalt Liquor
American Indian Movement activist Vernon Bellecourte and and others yesterday renewed their call for a boycott of Crazy Horse Malt Liquor and other products manufactured by G. Heileman Brewing Co. and/or Hornell Brewing Co. The use of the Crazy Horse name on alcoholic beverages is offensive to Native Americans, especially given that the revered spiritual leader Crazy Horse was strongly opposed to the use of intoxicating spirits by his people.
This boycott was first called in June of 1992 by the American Indian Movement, the National Coalition on Racism in Sports and Media, the International Indian Treaty Conference, and the Wisconsin Green Party. Products included are: Crazy Horse Malt Liquor, Old Style, Special Export, Red, White & Blue, Carling Black Label, Ranier, Mickey's Malt Liquor, Colt 45, Blatz, Kingsbury, Schmidt, St. Ides's, and Arizona Iced Tea.
Crazy Horse brand has been banned in three states due to its offensive name. To register your complaint, call Hornell Brewing Co. (owners of the brand) at 718/284 -1200 or G. Heileman Brewing Co. (bottlers) at 608/ 785-1000.
