Hoppy National Beer Day-April 7, 2019

Toward the end of Prohibition,

Many people had ambition

To make a legal beer and sell it too.

Though, no stronger than 4.0

T’was better than nothing don’t you know.

So celebrate and have yourself a brew.

From the National Beer Day webpage:   On April 7, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer, in the United States, as long as it remained below 4.0% alcohol by volume (ABV).  Beer drinkers celebrated and were happy to be able to purchase beer again for the first time in thirteen years.
