Cleveland brewery honors LeBron James with a beer called 'Quitness'

July 16, 2010 |  3:03 pm

A Cleveland brewery is releasing a beer called "Quitness" in honor of LeBron James' decision to leave the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.

"Quitness" is a dry hopped India pale ale that leaves a bitter aftertaste in its drinkers mouths -- a sensation that many Cavs fans already feel.

James announced his decision to go to the Heat last week after seven years with the Cavs, leaving his disillusioned former following craving revenge.

Great Lakes Brewing Co. says 30 gallons of "Quitness" sold out in three hours on Wednesday.
