Hart-starting-roastDAYS OF LOT –  Boston Beer, the makers of the popular Sam Adams brand, have reportedly pulled their support from the Boston St. Patrick’s Parade following the event’s long-standing ban on the participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) groups. The company issued a statement through MassEquality, the organization pushing for the inclusion of gay veteran groups in the parade, on March 14. A portion of the statement tells consumers that Boston Beer previously remained 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.” MORE
