#NationalBeerDay: 5 places to celebrate local suds

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Today - April 7 - is National Beer Day. According to this article, "National Beer Day is closely linked to the end of Prohibition, a 13-year period of time that ran through the 1920s and early 1930s in which it was illegal to consume, produce, or distribute alcoholic beverages. Specifically, the holiday is closely tied to the Cullen–Harrison Act, which was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 to mark the end of the alcohol ban." To celebrate, here are 5 places to grab a local beer: *1. Snake River Brewing:* Snake River Brewing offers many different locally brewed beers on tap , including favorites Pakos and Jenny Lake Lager. *2. Thai Me Up:* If you've never been there, Thai Me Up is an interesting place -- it is half Thai restaurant, half brewery. This was the original brewing location for Melvin Brewing before they moved operations down to Alpine. According to its website , they offer 20 craft beers on tap -- some from Melvin, some from other craft breweries. *3. Q Roadhouse and Brewing Co.:* Located in Wilson, the Q offers in-house brewed craft beer, cocktails and food. They have 19 beers on tap, which rotate daily. Here is their current tap list. *4. The Bird:* South of Jackson, the Bird has lots of beer on tap including local and regional craft selections. Check out what's on tap right now at the Bird. *5. The Silver Dollar Bar:* This historic Jackson Hole bar has no shortage of craft beers. They offer beers from Snake River Brewing, Grand Teton Brewing, Roadhouse Brewing, and Lander Brewing. Head there for dinner and pair your food with a local craft beer. As always, if you plan to indulge, make sure to have a safe way home. *Feature Photo: h/t Ethan Barnowski via Giphy / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
