(Jackson, Wyo.) - Today - April 7 - is National Beer Day. According to this Fortune.com 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.
