Budweiser for microbrews? C'mon, can't Mayor Nutter cut a better deal for his bet with the mayor of St. Louis in anticipation of the upcoming ball games between the two hometowns?
I mean, it's not even PBR.
But Nutter spokesman Mark McDonald says we miss the deeper meaning behind Nutter's decision to bet a selection of Philadelphia microbrews should the Phillies lose to the Cardinals. If the Phillies win, St. Louis Mayor Francis G. Slay will send some Bud Nutter's way. Anheuser-Busch InBev, maker of the King of Beers, has North American headquarters in St. Louis.
"We produce some high-quality beverages in this city, and we think the mayor of St. Louis and the city needs to know about it and follow from example," McDonald said, "and after the fighting render the Cardinals wingless and speechless, they are going to need a beer, a quality beer."
