Beer Brand Samuel Adams Pulls Out Of St. Patrick’s Day Parade Due to Lack of LGBT Inclusivness

Samuel Adams Lager is the first beer I can remember – it was a beer my parents enjoyed when I was young and we lived in New Jersey. Though I didn’t have one until almost exactly 2 decades later, it still was a positive memory: The American beer that wasn’t terrible for Germans.

Now there’s more reason to like the beer: After negotiations to allow a LGBT Veterans group to march in the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Boston failed, the company announced that they wouldn’t participate in the event:

“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,” the Boston Beer Company said in a statement. “But given the current status of the negotiations, we realize this may not be possible.”

Cheers to that, Sam!
