Pittsburgh bar bans great beer, blames it on hockey

Blog Photo - Pittsburgh bar bans Boston beers during Eastern Conference Finals vs BruinsThe Pittsburgh Penguins are playing the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Finals for the right to go to the Stanley Cup Finals.

As an attempt to show their support for all things Pittsburgh, a Pittsburgh bar is banning all Boston beers until the end of the series.

The thing is... the joke's on them.

Sam Adams is the best American beer maker on the market today. So not only will Penguins fans be frustrated by the greatness of the Boston Bruins, they'll also be upset at the lack of high quality Boston lager.

Congrats to the Penguins on making it to the conference finals, but was this really necessary?

Whatever. It's your loss. Boston always does it better.

Try this instead of Kentucky Ale's Bourbon Barrel.  You might like it better.

It appeals to my roots. I thank the bourbon gods for it.  It's available in Kentucky, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, and--wait for it--Massachusetts.  So you should be able to find it.

No s***, Sherlock.  Doesn't change the fact that you're still a bandwagon hockey fan.

False. I'm a Bruins fan 100% of the time. Just not quite to same level as the Celtics, Sox and Patriots.

Big deal, so they're having a little fun.  This is one bar that's doing this out of how many in the city?  I rest my case.

Boston bars would respond in kind, but I'm guessing they're smart enough not to carry any of the Pittsburgh-area swill.

Well played...Pittsburgh fans. Being that both cities are two of the douchiest fan-wise. This type of thing should really be happening in a higher volume throughout the series, for my amusement. I'm rooting for (fun) escalation!


Because it IS The Cup!

Well if it comes from Boston .............   (this is where the CoC comes into play)

Hah! I think it's kind of funny...just a little fun, "Because it's the Cup"
