Seventy-Five Years Ago: The Day Hope Arrived In A Glass

Celebrating April 7, the 75th Anniversary of the Return of Legal Beer

April 7, 1933. Sirens blared. The beer trucks rolled. People danced in the streets and crowded into taverns to raise a glass in honor of legal beer.

It was the day hope arrived in a glass.

I’ve written a piece about that day. It’s in today’s Los Angeles Times under the title “The day the beer flowed again.”

I hope you’ll take a look.

I hope you’ll listen to the recording of the speech Gus Busch gave that day.

Perhaps you’ll share a beer with your family and friends, or join one of the special events hosted by bars and breweries around the country.

But no matter where you are, or who you’re with, take a moment to honor the day hope arrived in a glass.

Thanks for taking time these past few weeks to share this countdown with me.

Now go! Have a beer!
