Do you know that 80 years ago tonight people were lined up outside the breweries in Milwaukee waiting for their doors to open on the 7th and purchase some beer! President Roosevelt had Repealed Prohibition, It was a Thursday night and the people of that city were waiting with eager anticipation. When the doors opened that Friday and the numbers totaled it was said that in the first 24-hours after the Repeal of Prohibition over 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed. Make sure tonight you enjoy a good quality beer. Back then the government set a limit of 3.2%or 4% ABV for light beer only. Then enjoy another in memory of those hardy folks who were standing outside that night in Milwaukee.............. which I’ll bet was cold.
