Everyone knows that beer is God's drink of choice, but not everyone knows that God's beer of choice is a Boston lager named after puritanical founding father Samuel Adams. The Boston Beer Company, which owns Sam Adams, was recently forced to address a glaring error in their Fourth of July-themed advertisement: the ad omits any mention to God (or rather "their Creator").
The ad drew from the Declaration of Independence, stating:
All men are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
God forbid the "Creator" get a shout out from his favorite beer on national television in His best country. Here's the original text:
…that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Christians facebook users from all over the country caught the error and took it upon themselves to inform the heathen beer company. When asked, a spokesperson for the Boston Beer Company said that there were certain codes and regulations disallowing them to make any religious references. Specifically, "beer advertising and marketing materials should not include religion or religious themes."
Great. Glad that's cleared up. Now if we could get back to the far greater issue: Sam Adams sucks.
