TFA: "If the trademark is approved, Boston Beer said it will allow others in the beverage category to use the "Boston Strong" phrase so long as 100 percent of profits are donated to charity."

Don't you sound like a bell end, subby?

Brewed in a pressure cooker, it's a light and homemade tasting, portable beer that explodes shrapnel of delicious hops to get you to the finish line of flavor.

So they are trying to trademark it for the beverage industry only with all profits going to charity.  They will allow others to use it in this specific industry if the profits go to charity.  I have no problem with this.  They have been a local homegrown company and have supported the race and local industry for a long time.

Make it a good, nice dark stout.

Oh no! We certainly wouldn't want to use a tragedy for someone to grandstand and get attention for themselves or their product. It would be terrible if anyone did that.

Sold only in pairs, contents under pressure, drink responsibly or alcohol content can cause impairment and loss of footing.

I'd actually compare Carter more to AOL- he opened it up to EVERYBODY. Now, whether or not that's a Good Thing is debatable, but it is what it is.

Also, I've noticed that most craft brewers don't like to acknowledge just how much the idea of "beer can be more than a tasteless lager" was driven home by Coors marketing Killian's Irish Red. Actually, allow me to rephrase that- I've noticed that most craftbrew FANS don't mention that...

I would dare say that Mr. Maytag was doing the craft brew thing before the repeal of the prohibition on lawful homebrewing.

leagalising homebrewing ones beer opened the flood gates that would eventually spur the craft beer movement as a whole.

Homebrew and craft breweries are two different animals.

Fritz was brewing Anchor Steam in 1971, so Carter is out of play.

Well, some DMS is formed during fermentation but more is lost in this period due to CO2 scrubbing.   But you're essentially right:   the vast majority of DMS is formed form S-methylmethionine during wort heating, and is lost due to volatilization during boiling.

Malt is a source for DMS also.  Especially under-dried malts like Pilsner.

+1 for the Fritz Maytag nod.  Indeed, it was him that revived American craft brewing...much as Charlie Papazian was the guy who drove homebrewing to the front.

You obviously don't know the Craft Brewing industry well enough, so I can't explain it to you.

This is right up Boston Beer Company's alley.  Never met the guy, but his heart always seems to be in the right place.  Or his PR team deserves a raise.  Maybe both.

Add me to the "I'm OK with this" group - Jim and his company have always (from everything I've read) been very philanthropic, from sharing hops during shortages to incubating start-ups, to the donations mentioned in TFA.

/but PLEASE don't put it in cans!! (I know, too late)

ou obviously don't know the Craft Brewing industry well enough, so I can't explain it to you.

Let me put this in different terms- Little Richard was playing rock n' roll in Atlanta in 1950. He even had some records that were locally successful.

But none of that really mattered in the grand scheme of things until Elvis came along.

Knowing the craft beer industry in Massachusetts like I do I can definetley say there are some morally decrepit arseholes whom would capitalize on the charity aspect and take the majority of the profits for themselves.

Jim is a totally solid dude. Apparently he just "samples" his brew all day and drives around to different beer events. He's truly living the American dream.

Also, I know for a fact that he was dead set against the cans (overheard the conversation in the mens room) but it makes sense that they'd do it now considering how many competitors are. It's the only way you can bring beer into a lot of venues that don't want to clean up broken glass.

Hasn't can technology gotten to the point where its just as good as putting it in bottles?

And, cans are great for public events that allow beer/liquor, but no glass bottles.

Also, it's not light-struck. Heineken in a can > bottle.
