Mayor Martin J. Walsh comes out against boycott of Samuel Adams beer

Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh came out against any boycott of Samuel Adams ale yesterday as Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and others vowed to never drink the Boston Beer Co. product again.

Curtatone, in a flurry of tweets, blasted the company’s founder, Jim Koch, for meeting with President Trump and other business bigwigs last week to thank the president for tax cuts.

But Walsh told the Herald yesterday, “I think that if you start talking about boycotting something against elected officials, including the president, there’s not much stuff we’d be able to buy in the country.”

Walsh said he didn’t know the specifics of Koch’s meeting with Trump and “whether he was a supporter of the president or if it was just dinner.”
