"Bottoms Up" Beer Glass Bill Inches Forward in Gridlocked State House

As the state budget impasse draws closer to a new record, our Lehigh Valley state legislators are hard at work. Mike Schlossberg is doing what he can to trumpet his social media business. Gary Day is drumming up support for an official "Bottoms Up!" beer glass.

At a time when school districts and nonprofit human service agencies are running out of money, he's honed in like a laser beam on the Samuel Adams Boston Lager Pint Glass. Last time i checked, Sam and Boston were both in Massachusetts.

Here's his memo to other state reps about this important piece of legislative drivel.
Samuel Adams is a large craft brewer in Pennsylvania. Despite it's name, two-thirds of their products are produced in Breinigsville, Pennsylvania, which is located in my district. While I am not seeking to name them as the official beer of Pennsylvania, I am seeking that a specifically constructed beer glass be named as the official beer drinking glass of the Commonwealth.

The Samuel Adams Boston Lager Pint Glass is the first glass specifically designed to showcase Samuel Adams Boston Lager as the brewers intended. It has been demonstrated in research that the right glassware can optimize the consumer's drinking experience.

While many Pennsylvanian's may argue over the best beer in PA, I believe it is safe to say that most brewers will not go to the length of designing and producing a specifically patented vessel for beer serving and consumption.
Don't get me wring. I'm all for it, so long as Samuel Jackass Badass Ale is recognized as the official beer of Gary Day.

Did you make this up? Sometimes you try to trick us. No way would even Schlossberg who sells his book at lectures try to introduce an official beer glass.
