Lakefront Brewery "Putin is a D***" crawler label

Lakefront Brewery announced its "Putin is a D***" crawler label, designed as a way to show support for Ukrainian refugees, has raised more than $54,000.

In a Facebook post, the Brewery said it recently wired more than $33,000 to the United Nations' Ukraine humanitarian fund, bringing the total to $54,206.16.

The brewery's crowler is a 32-ounce aluminum can, filled with any one of Lakefront’s draft beers and taken to go. From time to time, brewery officials have used the crowler – via a custom label – to help those in need.

They can only be purchased at the brewery and online for pickup. Lakefront initially anticipated raising at least $10,000 for Ukrainian refugees.
