It's a backhanded compliment we Canadians will happily accept.

A Wisconsin brewing company has created a beer called "Blame Canada" inspired by our wildfires that have caused the smoke to billow to the U.S.

G-Five Brewing Company in Beloit, Wisconsin, teamed up with fellow brewer Rocky Reef to create something half-diss, half-delicious.

"Blame Canada" is described as an easy-drinking session India pale ale inspired by the smoke-filled skies plaguing much of the U.S. Midwest and northeastern states earlier in the summer.

In an interview with the Canadian Press, G-Five's head brewer,Tim Goers, explained that the idea for the beer was written in the smoke-filled sky.

"When you have a business that is cyclical like that, you don't want your patrons to be outside because of air quality, so it does hurt business a little bit," he explained in the interview.

The idea was also inspired by the South Park: The Movie" song "Blame Canada."

As Goers explains, the beer is a hit.

"Out of 12 available options on tap, it's our number 3 best-seller right now, and it hasn't even had a full month of sales." he says.

The label also lays all the blame on Canada, with the Toronto Skyline on fire and a maple leaf in the background.
