A Pittsburgh bar has announced it will not be selling Boston beer during the Bruins-Penguins series, Yahoo! Sports's Puck Daddy blog reports.

Howler's Coyote Cafe posted a photo to its Facebook page of a barroom sign that reads "Two days left to order any Sam Adams. We will not be serving any Boston beers during the Eastern Conf. Finals!"

The photo on Facebook was posted with a notice that the message was a "public service announcement."

Howlers is located in Pittsburgh's "Little Italy" section, according to its website. The bulk of Samuel Adams beer actually used to be produced under contract by the Pittsburgh Brewing Company, whose current beers do not rate very highly among beer geeks. Visitors to Pittsburgh will have much better luck at The Church Brew Works. Try the Celestial Gold, a German Pilsener.
