BOSTON (CBS) – A sports bar in New York is banning a certain Boston-based beer during next Sunday’s Super Bowl game.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope reports.
There will be no Sam Adams beer served during the game between the Patriots and the Giants at Foley’s New York Pub and Restaurant across from the Empire State Building.
Owner Shaun Clancy said he really doesn’t mean anything by the decision.
“It did hit a nerve, but there was no malice intended,” said Clancy.
Clancy also has a bet with McGreevy’s in Boston. The losing bar owner will have to travel to the winner’s city and work a bartending shift while wearing the other team’s jersey.
Clancy is sure, though, he won’t have to do that.
“Someone asked me that question, he said, ‘Hey, what size jersey should we send you?’ I said, ‘No need, I’m not gonna need it,'” said Clancy.
Each bar will also donate proceeds from the sale of Shepard’s Pie to charity.
