So the man who owns a bar less than three miles from Gillette Stadium, where the Patriots play, called up the microbrewery that makes some of his bar's beers and asked them if they could supply him with a blonde IPA.
On Tuesday, Horne's dream came to fruition as his bar, the Eagle Brook Saloon in Norfolk, Massachusetts, unveiled the Free Brady Blonde IPA on its menu.
"A wrong has been committed, and we as Patriots fans want to support Tom Brady," the description on the saloon's menu reads. The bar promises that one dollar from each sale will be donated to a charity of Brady's choice.
Despite the $6.75 price point -- most of its microbrews cost $5.25 -- many patrons haven't flinched. In six days, Horne said, the bar has sold more than 500 glasses of the beer.
"We just feel like the NFL is taking a shot at the big guy on the block to make a statement," Horne said. "It's ridiculous."
While the Patriots won't appeal the $1 million fine and the loss of two draft picks from Deflategate, Brady is appealing his four-game suspension. The appeal will be heard by commissioner Roger Goodell.
