This brewery and pub is run by husband and wife Luke and Catherine Mitchell.

Luke Mitchell told the BBC, "They're all tongue-"They're names – a nicer outlook on some horrible dictators. We've woken up the last couple of mornings with thousands and thousands and thousands of notifications. Everyone laughs when they see the names on the bar. As far as I'm aware, no one's been offended, but I'm sure there is someone out there." (Also Read: 4 booked for carrying beer, liquor sans permit in Chandigarh)

His wife, Catherine, said to the BBC, "It's been crazy. The phone just hasn't stopped for the last 48 hours." However, she feared that someone might take offence to the names of the brews. She added, "I think there's always a risk of somebody being offended."

From every barrel of Osama Bin Lager, the brewery pays £10 to a charity that aids the victims of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. (Also Read: 3,108 cartons of illicit liquor, beer worth 79 lakh seized in Chandigarh)
