UPDATE, Friday a.m.: Sam Adams drops sponsorship of the parade.
Club Cafe on Columbus Avenue says it is dropping Sam Adams for its decision to continue sponsoring the St. Patrick's Day parade in South Boston.
In a post on its Facebook page, its owners say they'll resume sales of the beer when either LGBT groups are allowed to march openly in the parade or the Boston Beer Co. stops sponsoring the parade.
It is hard to understand how a community like Boston, where Gay members of the Police force, military and others have, and continue to, put there lives on the line for ALL BOSTONIAN's, that organizers of The St.Patrick's Day Parade feel it is just to discriminate against us as a community, and that Sam Adams does not take seriously the impact that their support of bigotry will have on their relationship to the LGBT community and their business.
