Sam Adams Beer pulls out of South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade
boston.com ^ | 3/14/2014 | David Zimmerman

Posted on 03/14/2014 8:51:46 AM PDT by reegs

Yesterday South End restaurant Club Cafe announced that it would no longer serve Sam Adams due to the brewer's association with the parade. In an open letter on its facebook page Club Cafe stated that they were "disappointed that Sam Adams does not understand that the organizers of the St. Patrick's Day Parade continue to demonstrate that they do not respect LGBT Irish Americans by excluding LGBT members of this community from openly marching in the St.Patrick's Day Parade."

This morning Sam Adams released a statement that said, in part "We share these sentiments with Mayor Walsh, Congressman Lynch and others and therefore we will not participate in this year’s parade."

Too bad they took this stance. I used to like their beer. The real Sam Adams is rolling in his grave.

If I had not quit drinking I could boycott their beer of which I once consumed mass quantities.

I don’t drink alcoholic beverages, but if I did, I wouldn’t touch “Sam Adams” swill with a barge pole.

I’d brew my own first. Easy enough to do, by the way.

Regardless of the quality, taste or variety, the VERY LAST beer I would ever buy is one made in Boston. Especially Sam Adams.....they should have that name revoked, IMO.

Another company caves. This is really getting tiresome. Why won’t anyone fight back as the “gays” force their immoral and unnatural lifestyle on the entire country?

Just how many “LGBT Irish Americans” are there? I mean they must be a significant demographic for this company to alienate the rest of their customers.

Face it, the gay agenda is being shoved down our throats. Its a global effort by the same people who are put bam bam in office.

I’m still trying to get an answer from these gay groups, just what exactly does the St. Patricks parade have to do with sexuality but so far I’ve gotten no reply. There’s different types of sexuality but for some reason gays feel the need to be obnoxious about theirs.

Here you can write them yourself. I asked them “What does the St. Pattys day parade have to do with sexuality and why would you think people would give a damn about what gets you off sexually? Today I took a sh*t, does that interest you? Then why would you think I give a damn about what gives you an orgasm?”

OK, fine. If the business they pick up exceeds the business they’ll lose (mine, for one) then it was a sound decision. If not, well, feeling good doesn’t pay the rent.

Sam Adams (The Boston Beer Company) is a public company and probably controlled by the same people as Bud & Miller.

I guess local beers are the way to go.

Nobody’s going to care. There any numbers of bars along Broadway where other types of beer are available.

Probably because they don’t want to fight back.

IMO, until one of these companies gets to really get slammed financially, they will continue to roll over. I drink a beer or two very occasionally but be certain it will NEVER be a sam adams in the future.

And they take delight in making any gathering, traditional or otherwise, distasteful to the degree that you or I will no longer participate.

I don’t drink either, never developed a taste. I would try making my own before buying as well.

I miss the good ole days of 70s and early 80s beer commercials, especially the less filling vs taste great ones.

Disagree. Their market is unaware of and/or indifferent to all this, so they lose nothing whatsoever by giving in to the bullies.

Here’s the story of st Patrick. It is a true story:

http://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=89

And he is who is honored on st Patrick’s day. And Catholics believe that he lives, as Jesus teaches, after death, sharing in His resurrection, and tgat he, st pat, can speak to and appeal to Jesus in prayer and petition, and that there is a blessing over this parade.

Here is what the church says about homosexuality:

http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p3s2c2a6.htm

St Patrick helped the Irish. He led them out of paganism into the light of faith. Not even all the drinking can eradicate that. He saw worse pagan worship than the mayor and Sam Adams Beer co are exhibiting here

That they think they are bigger than the faith, that’s pride. They are ignorant of history that they’re doomed to repeat

They are worshipping money and earthly power. I won’t buy their beer, and I’m glad to be of Doyle ancestry and not of Walsh, no offense, and I’m sure there are as many faithful walshes as Doyle’s, its just a fleeting sentiment today

But whatever I do, it will be nothing compared to what they’ll have to explain one day, using homosexuals and their misguided power play in order to gain power, and mis using a great saint to do it

They are the pagans he himself converted and they are completely idiotic and likely as ignorant of st Patrick, his life and influence and true power as any green beer drinking idiot

Up until very recently, St. Patrick’s Day was not a big deal in Ireland itself:

In modern-day Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day has traditionally been a religious occasion. In fact, up until the 1970s, Irish laws mandated that pubs be closed on March 17. Beginning in 1995, however, the Irish government began a national campaign to use St. Patrick’s Day as an opportunity to drive tourism and showcase Ireland to the rest of the world. Last year, close to one million people took part in Ireland ‘s St. Patrick’s Festival in Dublin, a multi-day celebration featuring parades, concerts, outdoor theater productions, and fireworks shows.

There is something bad wrong with this country when perverts have this much power over private businesses.
