Quoted from the article in the NY Times LINK:

“Mr. Florke, 51, and Mr. Maloney, 47, who was elected in 2012 as New York’s first openly gay congressman, were married last month at a church near their home in Cold Spring, N.Y., as their three children looked on. Representative Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, gave a toast. Joan Osborne, the pop singer, crooned a ballad for their first dance. Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 5.32.58 PMA keg of lager called “19-33 Queens Lagrrr”, from SingleCut Beersmiths in Astoria, was provided so guests could stop for a refreshment on their way to the reception.

We’d like to summarize this event in the words of another notable figure, Randy Bachman of Bachman Turner Overdrive: “I think that any love is good lovin'”.

Bravo Mr. Florke and Mr. Maloney. We all at SingleCut Beersmiths hold our pints high in salute of your historic event.
