While some fans honor Beyoncé Knowles by naming their kids after her, creating unique paintings or inking their bodies, one super fan attempted to pay homage, but hugely failed.
Consequently, Queen Bey didn’t take too well to the attempt and instead slapped Brooklyn’s Lineup Brewing Company with a cease and desist; ordering a stop in production of their new pilsner, “Bïeryoncé.”
Furthermore, Katarina Martinez, owner of the company, claims since she couldn’t make it to one of Bey;s concerts; despite having purchased tickets; she instead created a new flavor, specially named after the 36-year-old singer.
Additionally, the Bey-flavored drink will no longer be mass produced following the order, but still remains in New York while supplies last.

In addition, Martinez tells Pitchfork:
“As a Hispanic, female run business, I am very inspired by her so I thought I’d pay homage. We’re disappointed she didn’t take it as a compliment, but oh well. It was fun while it lasted!”
While there still remains some batches of the Bey-inspired brew, there’s no indication on whether the remaining can be shipped outside of the state; specifically for those living elsewhere wanting to grab before they disappear.
Meanwhile, Bey just landed herself on the Forbes highest-paid musicians list, raking in a cool $105 million.
