American Patriot Beer is no brew for Unions

John Bealís All-American Beer Companyís American Patriot Beer may sound like a good idea. A cold brew made in America.

But Beal, the rat roofer turned beer baron, is no friend of unions.

ďI think for any union household thatís into drinking beer in St. Louis, thereís only one and thatís AB/InBev,Ē said Jeff Aboussie, executive secretary-treasurer of the St. Louis Building and Construction Trades Council. ďAB has contributed hundreds of thousands of manhours of union construction to the St. Louis area for decades. Iím sure Patriot Beer is going to have a hard row to hoe to come into this market.Ē

Beal, who does business as John Beal Incorporated, John Beal Construction, Inc., John Beal Door Company, LLC and John Beal Roofing, does residential and commercial roofing, siding, windows, gutters, masonry, kitchens, bathrooms, basements, additions and decking and none of it is done union.

2. It Is A Union Made Beer - Teamsters Local 695

Why would they say this if the beer is made by Teamsters Local 695? Did they not know this? This beer is in fact Union made. I thought Unions supported Unions. I guess not. Also it says to support AB products... Well the people that own that company do in fact own and operate other business that are not Union. Double standard if you ask me.
