End of the World

If you haven't yet done what you've always wanted to do, it's too bad and too late, at least according to the ancient Mayan calendar

So don't regret what you didn't do yesterday, or fret what you won't be able to do tomorrow, just suck it up and enjoy your last beer today!

Wish List: Hydro Flask

Lucky the craft beer loving hiker who finds a Hydro Flask Growler under the tree this Christmas. From the brewery to the woods, keep your precious cargo cold for 24 hours without refrigeration.

Since it's made of stainless steel, it's safe from light, and won't break like a glass growler.

No skunky beer with this growler!
Besides the 64 ounce wide mouth growler, choose Hydro Flask sizes from 12 to 40 ounces for cold water or hot tea.

The double wall vacuum insulation is resistant to bacteria and odors, making it perfect to use as a food grade thermos.

This Day in Beer History

21st Amendment Ratified
On this day 79 years ago, the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, repealing the 18th Amendment
, which made the manufacture, distribution, and sale of alcoholic beverages illegal.

Before signing the legislation to finally end the "Noble Experiment," President Franklin D. Roosevelt cracked wise, "I think this would be a good time for a beer." Hey, who are we the people to disagree when the President declares that it's beer o'clock? 

So cheers to 21st Amendment Brewing and all the craft breweries that have flourished since the 14 year drought of Prohibition!
