A bar in Chicago's Roscoe Village neighborhood is vowing not to buy certain beers after a company executive held a fundraiser for President-elect Donald Trump over the summer.

The Green Lady at 3328 North Lincoln Avenue, is discontinuing the purchase of Miller Lite and Miller High life after, citing the Denver Post, MillerCoors Vice-Chairman Pete Coors supported Trump this summer.


"This is news from back in June but it's important to keep in mind in the post-election landscape.

"We will no longer buy Miller lite or Miller High life - the remaining cases that we've already purchased will be sold for $6 a bottle and all profits will be donated to Planned Parenthood in Pence's name," the Wednesday Facebook post said.

The post continued with a list of brands to avoid, but did not indicate if those brands would also no longer be sold at The Green Lady:
Coors
Killian's Red
Keystone
Hamm's
Mickey's
Miller
Milwaukee's Best

Olde English
Sparks
Steel Reserve
Magnum
Blue Moon
Crispin
Leinenkugel's
Saint Archer
Peroni
Pilsner Urquell
Batch 19

Grolsch
Henry Weinhard's
Tyskie
Cusquena
Cristal
Terrapin

The Denver Post article reports Coors co-hosted the Trump fundraiser, with entry at $10,000 per couple, at the home of former Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan. The event was cohosted by others, the Post said.

Trump lost his primary in Colorado to Sen. Ted Cruz, and lost the state in the general election to Hillary Clinton.

"I didn't know about it in June," owner Melani Domngues told GuysDrinkingBeer.com. "If I had I would have gotten rid of it a long time ago."

"I'm not trying to judge anyone for what they do, but as a publican and a citizen, this is how I can stand up and be counted and model behavior for my 5-year-old girl," Domingues told the Chicago Tribune.
