Jimmy's Famous Seafood Hosting Launch Party For Limited Time Beer 'PETA Tears'

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Last summer, PETA released billboards in Baltimore urging people to stop eating crabs.

The billboards had the image of a blue crab and read, "I'm ME, not MEAT."

When the billboards were launched by PETA, Jimmy's Famous Seafood fired back with a billboard of its own and series of tweets directed at PETA.

"Good morning, @peta!" one tweet said with an image of a pile of freshly steamed crabs.

A year later, Jimmy's Famous Seafood is celebrating the moment with a refreshing new locally brewed lager called - PETA Tears!

The lager is a limited time release and is, "paired perfectly with steamed crabs."

"Turns out that their tears are in fact quite delicious!" Jimmy's Famous Seafood said in a Facebook post.

A launch party will be held Wednesday, July 24. Part of the proceeds will go to Show Your Soft Side.
