  • 75 Years Ago Today - One we can all agree on

    Prohibition was repealed 75 years ago today. This should be a national holiday. It was one of the greatest moments in the history of our country. To celebrate, I brewed 25 gallons of beer yesterday and began drinking at 10:30 in the morning. I'm paying for it now, but I am a patriot.

        Yep. The clydesdales were first used to bring out/deliver the first post-prohibition batch of beer...

          I knew that because the Cardinals gave me a poster at the game yesterday that said so.

            Cool Poster...If you actually go on the brewery tour and not just sneak in to the tasting room, they tell you that...

              I have been on the tour many times but that is something that did not stick in my head. I was probably dizzy from the smell of the place.

                              I'm pretty much a libertarian, so I'm not much into prohibition.

                              However, just for the sake of discussion, and just because one of my best friends was an alcoholic who died much too young, I wonder how many lives might have been saved had they been able to make prohibition stick. They couldn't, of course -- people like to be free to make their own choices -- but I can understand the feeling behind it. Seemed a little ironical to see the Clydesdales and the Bud p.r. people trying to turn this into a national holiday, since it hasn't even been a year since our relief pitcher got drunk and got killed, and a little more than a year since our manager was arrested for DUI.

                              I guess I'm sort of saying I find it a little unseemly that the Budweiser marketing people have decided to turn this into another St. Patrick's Day.
