Sam Adams Withdraws from Boston St. Pat's Parade

Posted: Updated:

(AP)-The maker of Sam Adams beer says it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston's St. Patrick's Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups.

The Boston Beer Co. says it's disappointed that an agreement couldn't be reached between the gay rights advocacy group MassEquality and parade organizers that would have allowed gay veterans to march.

the decision comes a day after a bar in Boston's South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer's affiliation with the parade.
