21st Amendment has released thus far – Brew Free or Die IPA, Hell or High Watermelon Wheat, and Back in Black. There are a lot of people looking forward to Monk’s Blood. However, a new release will precede Monk’s and it’s called “Fireside Chat.”
One of 21st Amendment’s “Can Evangelists” pointed me over to 21A’s Facebook page where the early details have been released. From their post:
Fun facts about this art and the reason why we did this:
-Art is titled – FDR “Beer Geeking” with an elf!
-On March 12, 1933 FDR conducted his first “Fireside Chat”. This was a series of thirty evening radio speeches given by FDR between 1933 and 1944. These Chats were a way to communicate to the American public many things, along with how the country was going to recover from the great depression. “After the first Fireside Chat,” writes Alter, “Roosevelt relaxed in his office with Howe and Rosenman, his two top aides. At about 11:30 p.m. he said: ‘I think it’s time for beer.’ Preparations for a bill to speed the end of Prohibition began that night.”
-On March 22, 1933 FDR signed a bill legalizing 3.2% beer.
-This was accomplished by Rewriting the Volstead Act to categorize “nonintoxicating” beverages as ones containing up to 3.2% alcohol
-FDR was in office when the 21st Amendment was passed (December 5th, 1933). Utah was the final state to come on board and make the 21st Amendment official.
