For fans of beer honoring a sex-abuse enabler, this one's for you.
Triblive.com reports that Pennsylvania brewery Dusquene Beer is naming a beer in honor of Joe Paterno.
The late Penn State football coach was fired for concealing decades of serial sexual abuse by convicted serial child molester and retired American football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Paterno died of cancer several months after the Sandusky scandal broke in November 2011.
The son of "JoePa," Jay Paterno, is leading the effort to honor his late father.
Jay Paterno, who coached as an assistant at his father's side for 17 years, has joined forces with Upper St. Clair lawyer Mark Dudash, a 14-year veteran of the brewing industry, to start the Paterno Legacy Series of beer.
The brew, a premium American lager available in 12-ounce cans, is set to roll off the production lines at Latrobe's City Brewing Co. in cases and 12-packs in time for tailgating season.
Jay says he was also solicited by Sandusky, at age 13.
"I told no one in my family what had happened to me. I feared that I'd be judged," Jay Paterno wrote in his book "Paterno Legacy: Enduring Lessons from the Life and Death of My Father."
Sandusky, 70, who coached as Paterno's defensive coordinator, is currently serving 30 to 60 years in prison for sexually abusing 10 boys. Some of the abuse took place in school locker room showers.
Jay Paterno envisions “the kind of beer my dad would have had around the house,” he said. “I think he'd say it sounds like it could be some fun. Of course, if it had his picture on it, he'd probably say, ‘Get it out of the house.' ”

A Closed and Common Orbit picks up immediately after Chambers’ first story, Long Way to a Small and Angry Planet concludes but is barely an extension of that tale, beyond further expanding on Chambers’ wonderful universe.

Seasoned chefs have a bit of a love-hate relationship with their cutlery. A really good set of knives has to prove its worth by being put through the wringer – and if they’re really good, they’ll still look great afterward. So it is with the Damasukasu Japanese 3-Piece Master Chef Hanshu Knife Set. Sitting in […]
