Once upon a time, beer lovers were sad when our government ratified the 18th Amendment to the Constitution. In 1920, they banned all intoxicating liquors including beer and it started Prohibition.

Then on April 7th, 1933, the very same government saw the light and President Roosevelt ended Prohibition. So if your only going from the kitchen refrigerator to the living room table, grab a brew and celebrate the ability to drink.

Here's another question: What brew do you want to enjoy? How about one that will help out a good cause at the same time. I call that a "win-win." There is a Brooklyn brewery that is selling an IPA called "All Together" beer to raise money for out-of-work hospitality employees.

They shared the recipe and label art online, so other breweries could use it. If you're interested in the recipe, go here. Hundreds of breweries are using it to do the same thing and we hope one of our local breweries will participate too.

So while you wait to visit your favorite bartender at your favorite establishment, crack one open and support them from home.
