Happy 75th Anniversary on Beer Being Legal Again!
Dear St. Arnold’s Army:
It was 75 years ago today,
FDR thought we’d gone astray.
The economy was at a nadir,
And nobody could enjoy a beer.
So he modified the Volstead Act,
Prohibition shall not remain intact,
“Beer must be allowed!”
The cheers in response were loud.
Away with the legacy of Carrie Nation,
Toasted people with their favorite libation.
On April 7, 1933, beer was again legalized. It was not until 8 months later that the entire Volstead Act was repealed allowing for the sale of wine and liquor.
So raise a Saint Arnold this evening and toast to the 75th anniversary of beer being legalized again!
SAINT ARNOLD AT MINUTEMAID
When you go root for the Astros, you will be happy to know that you can enjoy a Saint Arnold on the field level (one location along the right field line) and in the club level (4 locations). We are not discriminating against the upper level, but we haven’t gotten a location there yet. Sorry!
BOURBON BARREL IMPERIAL STOUT CASKS POPPING UP AROUND TOWN
Each of our normal cask accounts will be getting one cask each of our bourbon barrel imperial stout as are a couple of other places. Please ask at the regular cask accounts as to when those will be tapped.
In addition, the Porch Swing will be tapping one of these casks next Monday, April 14. Rudyard’s will be having a promo a few days later, but you need to contact them to get details.
MID-TOWN PUB CRAWL COMING ON FRIDAY, APRIL 25
More details to come, but put the date on your calendar!
Good luck to our MS150 team next weekend! May the wind be at your back and the beer in front of you.
Two more 120 bbl fermenters arrived here on Friday. We hope to get these into service quickly. Naming rights on one of them will follow.
Thanks for your support!
