The Founder of Sam Adams Beer Thanked Trump for the Tax Break ― Now a Local Mayor Wants a Boycott

The founder of Boston Beer Company, Jim Koch, thanked President Donald Trump for signing the Job and Tax Cuts Act — and not everyone is happy about it.

The Samuel Adams beer founder told Trump that the tax cuts helped him to become more competitive with international breweries. Koch told the president, “Now we have a level playing field, and we’re going to kick their ass.”

According to the Boston Globe, Koch wasn’t kidding. The company’s tax rate fell from 36 percent to 28 percent.

Koch told the president that he represents the 7,000 small breweries that are excelling under the new tax cuts.

“When I started Sam Adams, American beer was a joke, and it pissed me off.“ Koch said. ”And now, American brewers make the best beer in the world. And the tax reform was a very big deal for all of us, because 85 percent of the beer made in the United States is owned by foreign companies.”

So, Koch thanked the president. Predictably, the some on the left lost their minds.

Joseph Curtatone, mayor of Somerville, Massachusetts, took to Twitter to express his disdain for the president and brewery owner, calling them white nationalists.

As expected, many of Trump’s supporters attacked Curtatone for his boycott.

Despite the public backlash his boycott has received, Mayor Curtatone doesn’t seem to care.

It is likely that Curtatone’s boycott will be as successful as the boycott of Laura Ingraham’s Fox News Show, Vanguard Group’s gun manufacturing, and Publix grocery stores — all of which failed.

Boston Beer Company produces Sam Adams beer, Angry Orchard ciders, Twisted Tea, and Truly sparkling waters.
