All Politics (and Beer) is Local
Thursday night's "beer summit" may be international news -- but all politics is local.
Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.) quickly penned a letter to the president Wednesday suggesting that Obama serve -- instead of Bud Light, Red Stripe and Blue Moon -- bottles of Sam Adams, "the largest American-owned brewing company." Which happens to be based in....Neal's home state.
"These craft brewers have done a great job with domestically-produced beer," the lawmaker told us today. "Since the incident happened in Massachusetts, it would have been nice to have Massachusetts beers." Neal said he quaffs brews from local faves Sam Adams, Berkshire ("they do a great pale ale"), and Northampton -- as well as the occasional Bud, though the King of Beers is now manufactured by a Belgian conglomerate. "I have an integrated approach to beer," said Neal.
So, what does he think of the president's choice of Bud Light? "I think we should use it as a teachable moment."
