Doesn’t it depend on what beer they were drinking in the Red Sox clubhouse as to how big a sin it was? Why has no one asked this very important question?
First off, if it was something that said Busch, Miller, or Coors on it, that’s just wrong. It’s like rooting for the Cardinals, Brewers, or Rockies. The same goes for Blue Moon, which is part of Coors and there is a Blue Moon Brewery attached to Coors Field.
Even worse would be if they were drinking a Bronx Pale Ale from the Bronx Brewery.
For the Wilpon conspiracists: If they were drinking a Brooklyn Brewery Pennant Ale ’55, Fred wants to trade for Lester. Pennants aren’t won in September either.
Perhaps the best beer they could’ve been drinking was a local microbrew: Wachusett Green Monsta IPA. Although it says it has a homerun of hops in every sip, so perhaps that’s more of a David Ortiz beer.
Presumably anything from Sam Adams would be appropriately Boston, except Oktoberfest. If they were drinking an Oktoberfest that’s ridiculously presumptious when they hadn’t even made the playoffs yet.
What beer do you think they were drinking?
