Last week, it was reported that Ben Affleck, a devoted Red Sox fan, refused to wear a Yankees hat in “Gone Girl.”

Apparently the Boston native doesn’t have a problem with Kansas City beer, because his character sports a Boulevard Brewing Co. T-shirt in the movie.

The gray T-shirt, which has the words “Let’s get some beer” on it, is an interesting wardrobe choice for a man whose wife is missing. Although, he is a bar owner …

Boulevard marketing manager Julie Weeks says the “Gone Girl” wardrobe team approached the brewery last year during filming in southeast Missouri.

“Since the film was based in Missouri, they wanted to work in the local/state aspect,” Weeks said.

The T-shirt is still available at Boulevard’s online store, but only in size small. Weeks said the brewery’s gift shop sells two more versions of the same shirt.
