How Does Sam Adams Beer Respond To The Gay Participant Discrimination At South Boston's St. Patrick's Day Parade? In The Best Way Possible!

sam adams supports equality


This is such a HUGE win!!!

The Boston Beer Company, ya know the ones who brew Sam Adams, have pulled OUT of the annual South Boston St. Patrick's Day parade because the event has refused openly gay participants from marching in the parade!

SO rude!!

The Boston Beer Co. decided to revoke their support because they were called out by a Boston restaurant who vowed they wouldn't serve its beer anymore, which prompted the courageous decision by the company!

They released a statement today that said:

"We have been participating in the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade for nearly a decade and have also supported the St. Patrick’s Day breakfast year after year. We’ve done so because of the rich history of the event and to support veterans who have done so much for this country.

We were hopeful that both sides of this issue would be able to come to an agreement that would allow everyone, regardless of orientation, to participate in the parade. But given the current status of the negotiations, we realize this may not be possible.

We share these sentiments with Mayor Walsh, Congressman Lynch and others and therefore we will not participate in this year’s parade. We will continue to support Senator Linda Dorcena Forry and her St. Patrick’s Day breakfast. We wish her all the best in her historic stewardship of this tradition."


It's starting to feel like a good day for a nice cold Sam Adams beer to us!

We commend you, Boston Beer Company, for your outstanding decision!!

Keep being awesome!!!

    So sick of you going on with all your political gay rights all the time. People and other countries have a right to their own beliefs! Children are starving and dying around the world, don't see you campaigning for that at all! Campaigning gay rights is not GOSSIP! Go and dump on a political blog if that is what you continually want to go on about, as we aren't on here to hear that all the time!!!

    Re: Nikki
    Yes Nikki, everyone has a 'right to their own beliefs' but that right stops at the point when their beliefs deprive others of theirs.
    Sorry but bigotry towards anyone, no matter what their sexual orientation, has no place in our society yesterday, today and forever.

    Once again, the gays bully a company into doing what they want. Never buying a Sam Adams again.

    The Boston St Patrick's day parade is a long standing tradition. It has nothing to do with Gay rights. Gay people are encouraged to walk in the parade BUT the focus is not about them!

    There gays go ruining something else. Jesus christ can't we do anything these days without it having to turn into something political?
