    Had no idea! I planned on sipping some IPA's I've kept for a rainy (it's actually sunny) day. Now I have a little more reason, not that I needed it :grinning:

    Well, if you want to be authentic...:wink:

    You should only drink beer 4% abv or under and only in these states which changed their laws in time to permit 3.2 abw on April 7, 1933, the day the Feds legalized beer thanks to the Cullen-Harrison Act.

    The true fanatic will pay a nickel for a glass of beer, but you're probably better off working that out with the bartender ahead of time. (The BLS says that 1933 5¢ is worth $0.94 in today's dollars).

    Sadly, I have a half marathon tomorrow so will not be partaking.

    Three trades have shown up the past two days, and I already have a packed fridge from my beer haul from when I visit up north. I'll have a hearty lineup tomorrow. Including a maibock for the online tasting!
