I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified
-- St. Paul, I Corinthians 2:2
Since this depicts God giving Adam a stein of beer, would it, by any chance, be Sam Adams pale ale?
Who knows? But I doubt it, in view of how the Boston Brewing Co. (makers of Sam Adams) treated the Lord, when it sponsored a radio contest that resulted in contestants having sex in St. Patrick's Cathedral. The on-air hosts thought this very funny (they were fired), but the Boston Brewing Co. never apologized, nor to my knowledge, even acknowledged any error or offense.I say that, because I sent, not one but two emails to the company, asking for clarification and urging an apology, and got no response whatsoever; and I have seen nothing on this subject elsewhere.I love Sam Adams' beer, but I am extremely annoyed that the company can't be bothered to distance itself from this sacrilegious behavior carried out with its sponsorship. Big joke. Not to me.
... As it has been awhile since I looked into this Sam Adams business, I did a little more poking around online.I found some second- and third-hand information suggesting the company had backed off, and maybe apologized, but such info is not very reliable.So I wrote the company again. I gave them this link. Let's see what happens (not that I'm a big fish or anything).
SAM ADAMS APOLOGIZES:I received a prompt reply from the Boston Brewing Co. today, which I will post in a new thread.
I'm inclined to believe that God would provide a Trappist brew: perhaps a trippel. Or at least a religiously-themed brew such as Salvatore. Still, it's good to hear that Boston Brewing realized they needed to distance themselves from that kind of behavior.
