The owner of a brewery in California is facing a firestorm of criticism for his brewery's name and logo.

The name of the brewery is Special Ed's Brewery. The owner, Ed Mason, says that 'Special Ed' has been his nickname his entire life.

The brewery also sells T-shirts with the phrase "Ride the short bus to special beer."

People who do not like the name have taken to social media to express their disgust. They say that the logo is insensitive to children with speacial needs.

A recent post on the brewery's Facebook page suggested that the owner is considering a name change.
