Cheers to Boston: A Message from Jim Koch

We’re excited to congratulate the Red Sox on their World Series win!

As you may have heard, we had a little something on the line with our friends Schlafly Beer in St. Louis.

Here’s what Jim had to say after the big win:

With the Red Sox clinching the World Series, it’s clear we are home to the most dedicated and passionate players and fans. I toast a Sam Adams Boston Lager to all the players and coaches for their hard work this season.

Now, I can also look forward to sharing a beer and BBQ with my good friend, Dan Kopman of Schlafly Beer since he lost his bet on his beloved Cards. We’ve had a lot of fun during the series, but I know we’re happy to get back to what we know best – brewing beer.  Who knows?  Maybe we’ll have a chance to wager again next year!

Beers, Beards, & Baseball

Lager BaseballThe mayors of Boston and St. Louis might not have a wager going for the championship series, but we definitely do. The gloves are coming off with our fellow craft brewer Schlafly Beer in St. Louis!

The wager: Jim Koch is so confident that our hometown team will win the series that he is betting two cases of his favorite Boston Lager and a lobster dinner against Dan Kopman’s Schlafly Pale Ale and a dinner from Pappy’s BBQ ribs. To sweeten the pot, the losing city will have to send one of their brewers to the winning city to help brew a victory beer.

Here’s what Jim had to say about the bet : “Here in Boston, we are lucky to be home to some of the best sports teams in the country. The Boston Red Sox are the epitome of passion and true American tradition. I look forward to seeing the team bring home the World Series trophy once again – and then toasting with a Boston Lager. May the best team win!”

And here’s what Dan had to say: “St Louis is the home of the best fans in baseball and the best beers in the US.  I look forward to our 12th World Series victory  and then visiting my good friend Jim and toasting with a Schlafly Pale Ale.  May the best team win!”

Cheers to beers, beards, and baseball!
