    Guy from NYC flies to Vietnam in the middle of the war. He tracks down buddies on the front line and buys them a beer.

    U.S. Passes 4,000 Breweries
    September 28, 2015

    This is a remarkable achievement that would have been unthinkable in late 1970s, when the number of American breweries dipped below 100.
