    National Beer Day came into being on April 7, 1933. Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt had taken the first step toward ending Prohibition. For the first time in 13 years, people were allowed to buy and sell beer, as long as it had less than 4 percent alcohol by volume.

    so thank fdr for your pbr

    4% beers are pretty weak. I'm liking the 6-9% beers these days and Bro is a fag.

    You should cohost on the Anthony Cumia show.

    He needs a cohost.

    Sweetwater makes a killer IPA I got to try when I was in Naples. Can't seem to find them up North.

    Highly recommend this one.

    This is a pretty elusive Christmas beer that if given the opportunity you should definitely try.

    I got it on tap when I was in Cape May New Years Eve. Definitely worth a try.

    i haven't had more than 2 beers at a sitting in 30 years. i kept hearing about craft beers and i have tried a few. not impressed so far.

    i go to a beer snob site to see how they rate the stuff i buy. i got one that they ranked 4.5 stars out of 5. it was terrible. i threw out 4 of them. it was very "hoppy" which i now know means tastes like shit.

    i'm still seeking the perfect beer. it'll be a long journey but if the good lord is willing, i've got time. :grad:

    Don't know anyone who has, but I would worry a bit about where and how long they have been sitting around.
    Do you have any "bottle" shops or "mix a six" places near you?? That would be my advice to try different stuff.
