The Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals are facing off in Major League Baseball's World Series, and while its customary for politicians in opposing cities to make friendly wagers, two local breweries are getting in on the act.
Boston's Samuel Adams and St. Louis' Schlafly are making a beer and food bet.

Samuel Adams founder and Boston Beer Chairman Jim Koch is putting up two cases of his flagship Boston Lager and a lobster dinner. Dan Kopman, co-founder of Schlafly Beer, is betting two cases of Schlafly Pale Ale and a BBQ rib dinner from Pappy's Smokehouse.
"Here in Boston, we are lucky to be home to some of the best sports teams in the country," said Koch in a statement released by the brewery. "The Boston Red Sox are the epitome of passion and true American tradition. I look forward to seeing the Red Sox bring home the World Series trophy once again—and then toasting with a Boston Lager."

Not surprisingly, Kopman sees things a little differently.
"St. Louis is the home of the best fans in baseball and the best beers in the U.S." he said. "I look forward to our 12th World Series victory and then visiting my good friend Jim and toasting with a Schlafly Pale Ale."
While the brewers may not agree on which team will win, they both punctuated their comments with the same sentiment: "May the best team win!"
