Ganesha’s face, Lakshmi’s body on beer bottle

Brookvale Union, an Australian brewery from New South Wales has a juxtaposed image of Hindu god Ganesha’s head and Hindu goddess Lakshmi’s body on its ginger beer bottles. This image has upset some Indians in Australia. “Is it just me or does anyone else find this ginger beer bottle offensive?” asks Taneea Thapliyal from Melbourne.

Last year Oregon-based Burnside Brewing Company had to apologise following widespread outrage for naming a beer after Hindu goddess Kali.

Brookvale Union’s tagline says, “Quality Nonsense”. The company’s website has the same juxtaposed image moving across the page and putting the cursor over the image replaces Ganesha’s head with that of cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.
