let there be beer

Companies have long argued that they do not adverts vice categories (tobacco, booze etc) but only vice brands. Thus they get around complaints that they are encouraging people to start consuming vice products by arguing they only want to advertise to people who have already decided to consume them and that they want to convince, for example, existing smokers to switch brands. It’s a compelling argument. But… let there be beer kind of undermines it.
