Seventy-Five Years Ago: Don’t Worry. We’re Ready

Counting Down to April 7, the Anniversary of the Return of Legal Beer

March 18, 1933:

A reporter in Milwaukee set out to answer a question plaguing the newspaper’s readers: Were the city’s brewers really ready to go?

The answer? Yes.

“Our tanks are fairly bulging,” said one brewery representative, “and if they don’t give us the word to go pretty soon, the sides of our building will be pushed out.”

Well, okay, a slight exaggeration. But who cared? The sweet smell of real beer was in the air.
