”Let’s settle this like adults” beer and coffee offers solution to dead end negotiations.
Kuopio based (400 kilometers north of Helsinki) microbrewery Rock Paper Scissors celebrates the meeting between President Putin and President Trump in a form of speciality coffee and craft beer. The two heads of Super States will arrive to Helsinki Summit on the 16th of July and microbrewery does not want to see important things not to be decided.
”Naturally we don’t offer this as a first solution for problem solving, but if there is a danger of a dead end, this is guaranteed way to solve issues.” says Samuli Huuhtanen, CEO of RPS Brewing Oy.
Despite the well-known fact that either of these two Presidents doesn’t like to drink beer, the brewery has decided to make an dry-hopped lager to celebrate this summit. ”Beer and specially lager beer is very universal drink. We want to offer an opportunity to people world wide to feel the atmosphere of this unique event by having lager beer in their home country.” explains Aki Railanmaa, Brewmaster of RPS.
For the meeting rooms of the world, they are also offering speciality coffee also called ”Let’s settle this like adults”. From Irmas Pereira farm in Brazil, this coffee suites perfectly to these head of States. ”The roast of the coffee will be perfect, like we hope the results of this summit, will be” says Jesse Parkkali, Roastmaster and CEO of RPS Coffee excited.
Very limited amounts of coffee and beer will be shipped out mid next week, just in time for the eve of the summit.
Both Brewery and Roastery are making very limited amounts of beer and coffee. 10.000 bottles of beer and 160 bags of coffee only will be sold out very soon. ”We’re not sure whether it is these products or are people interested of this solution we are offering, but nevertheless, demand has surprised us big time.” wonders Chairman of the Board of RPS, Janne Seppälä.
Beers and coffees are available on the 11th of July and are available as long as they last. QUESTIONS ASKED FROM US:
Q: How can you make sure that the Presidents knows how to play the game?

Q: What is the origin of Rock Paper Scissors as a name?
A: We founders go back a very long time. Rock Paper Scissors as a game has been our method to solve difficult and less difficult situations always. So it sort of solved this naming problem also. It is very deep in our DNA as persons, so it was natural choice of brand for us.
Q: Do you think the game RPS is a good game to settle high-level diplomatic negotiations?
A: We don't offer this as a first choice of making decisions but if nothing else helps, then this is adult way to settle things.
Q: Neither of the Presidents are known for love for beer. Why did you decide to go with beer?
A: World peace is a universal thing. We want people all around the world to be able to be part of this great summit and feel the spirit. Ot the other hand, many times in big meetings people drink coffee. That’s why we made “Let’s settle this like adulds” coffee.
