Proof that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has redeeming qualities is manifested by Scott Brown, Cape Cod potato chips, and Samuel Adams beer. The latter has been brewed since 1984 by Boston Beer Company, stated and still operated by Jim Koch (don’t know if he is related to David and Charles, current betes-noir for the left, and don’t much care, but he was a Harvard classmate of Mitt Romney). In an interview with William Bostwick about the success and direction of his craft-beer brewing company, Mr. Koch has this to say:
Bostwick: The names Boston Beer and Samuel Adams imply a specific story, or at least a history. How’d you settle on them?
Koch: We’re in Boston, so that wasn’t hard. And you don’t have to be a genius to know that you don’t put the name Koch on a product 26-year-old men put in their mouth.
You don’t say.
