The fallout of Brexit may drive many Brits to drink, but Bostonians could be the first to swill back a nice hard cider named after Britain’s departure from the European Union.

Boston Beer Company, the makers of Sam Adams beer, reportedly want to create a Brexit hard cider. The brewing company applied last Friday to trademark the term, according to a Politico report.

Britain’s vote to leave the EU rocked the globe last Thursday. A day later, Boston Beer filed a trademark application on an ‘intent-to-use” basis for cider, Politico reported. Boston Beer aslo makes Angry Orchard hard cider.

According to Fortune, a small batch of Brexit cider could be made out of the company’s Angry Orchard research and development orchard in Walden, New York.

But the brewers weren’t the only businesspeople going for a Brexit trademark. Someone in Chicago also filed to trademark the term for clothing and a Colorado company applied to trademark it for dietary supplements.
