Ontario Craft Brewers is in a brouhaha over a photo with controversial Progressive Conservative MPP Sam Oosterhoff, who has vowed to fight abortion rights for women.

A lobby group representing about 80 of more than 300 craft breweries in the province, the OCB posted a picture on Twitter of some of its members raising a glass with the 22-year-old Oosterhoff following a round-table discussion about the industry at Bench Brewing in his Niagara West riding on the weekend.

Social media then exploded with criticisms the photo amounted to an endorsement of the views of Premier Doug Ford's youngest MPP, prompting the brewers' organization to post an apology and subsequent explanation — which also backfired.
