Like many of you, I was very disappointed when Chick-Fil-A came out strongly against gay marriage. I mean, it’s not like we expect the businesses that we patronize to be above board. After all, behind every great fortune is a great crime. But, c’mon, $2 million to anti-equality assholes? That doesn’t even help you sell fried chicken. Sadly, as a New Yorker, I can’t do anything to boycott Chick-Fil-A, as the chain’s only outlet in the city is somewhere on the NYU campus and I’d never want to go there anyway.
But there’s one thing that New Yorkers love, and is available in every bodega: craft beer. So last night, I asked Dogfish Head if they were down with marriage equality and this was their reply. Yay Dogfish Head! I will buy you at the bodega the next time I go there.
Anyway, that gave me the idea for the Beer Equality Project. I ask you, my dear followers and readers, to ask all the breweries that you care about what their stances on marriage equality are. Please e-mail me at robertbigwheel at gmail with any responses that you may get, and I’ll do my best to keep tabs of who stands for equality. It can act as a primer the next time you’re at the store trying to determine what beer to buy to buy. Together, we can drink awesome beer and stop eating cheap chicken sandwiches.
“Hop” to it!
