I hate telling people what to do and what not to do, but you might want to reconsider drinking Samuel Adams beer, and for that mater anything that comes from the Boston Beer Company. I kept hearing rumors that Samuel Adams sponsored, on a number of occasions, a contest called "Sex for Sam" that encouraged contestants to engage in sex in some strange places: Times Square, NBC Today, on a Bus, in a museum (click here for the list); each place the contestants had sex, they would receive points for its corresponding location.
Now what does this matter to a Christian? Well the contest Hosts, Opie and Anthony of the Opie and Anthony radio show, encourage a couple to have sex in Saint Patrick's Cathedral in New York. The couple were arrested, Opie and Anthony were fired, and the radio station fined over $300,000. But despite firing, it did not discourage Opie and Anthony to drop the "Sex for Sam" contest when they entered the arena of XM/satellite radio, neither did it stop Jim Koch (owner of Sam Adams and Boston Beer Company) from sponsoring the event.
Besides sponsoring the event, Jim Koch was a guest on the Opie and Anthony show, and while a guest he became the "Celebrity" of which people (5 couples) attempted to have sex in front of him in order to gain 30 points towards the contest. Jim did nothing to stop it. In fact, Jim felt embarrassed . . . for the three couples who did not succeed in capturing the celebrity voyeurism points (Jim was the celeb). Jim then went on to say that all the competitors were, "awesome, all of 'em, better teams. The quality gets better every year."
Now, I don't know about you, but I don't think I want to buy beer from a guy who promotes and encourages exhibitionism, displays a low moral character, and appears to lack the backbone to get up and leave. In other words, I don't think I'll be buying beer from Jim Koch any more.
If you want more information, the people over at The Smoking Gun reported more on the story. They also have links to the radio show and the Fox5 news cast that reported the story of the couple having sex.
