The Boston Red Sox are going head to head in the 2013 World Series. That has prompted a beer bet between St. Louis, Missouri’s Schlafly, and Boston’s Samuel Adams.
Jim Koch is confident the Red Sox will win. He’s got two case of Boston Lager on the line, plus a lobster dinner. Schlafly’s Dan Kopman put two cases of Pale Ale and dinner from Pappy’s BBQ Ribs. In addition, each brewer is inviting the competitor to brew a beer of their choice at their respective breweries. All expenses paid.
Jim Koch on the bet:
“Here in Boston, we are lucky to be home to some of the best sports teams in the country,” said Jim Koch, Samuel Adams brewer and founder. “The Boston Red Sox are the epitome of passion and true American tradition. I look forward to seeing the Red Sox bring home the World Series trophy once again – and then toasting with a Boston Lager. May the best team win!”
“St Louis is the home of the best fans in baseball and the best beers in the US,” said Dan Kopman, Co-Founder of Schlafly Beer, St. Louis’ oldest and largest locally owned brewery. 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!”
The World Series kicks off tonight at 8:07 in Boston.
