"Brew Year's Eve" Festivities Tonight At JL Beers

Posted: Updated:

 

If you didn't already know, tonight is "Brew Year's Eve."  It marks the 80th Anniversary of legal beer in America.

The Cullen-Harrison Act, signed in 1933 by President Franklin Roosevelt, made 3.2% beer legal.  To celebrate, JL Beers is gearing up to mark the occasion New Year's Eve style.  They say beer has a special place in our culture.

"As everyone knows, I mean you have a couple beers and your day's worries start to go away.  It brings people together.  It's a celebratory drink, and sometimes a way to drown your sorrows, as well.  So, it's a drink for the everyman and it's a way to bring people together," says Curt Miller, General Manager, JL Beers.

While festivities start early, you still have time to join in on Brew Year's Eve at JL Beers.  A big part of the celebration affords revelers the opportunity to poke fun at Andrew Volstead, the Minnesota Senator who authored the law that started prohibition.
