EWH3 #1346: New Beer’s Eve Trail – April 6, 2023 – Lyman’s Tavern (Georgia Ave/Petworth)

Trail will be one leg with no beer check. Bag drop and opening circle at Lyman’s Tavern. End circle on the patio with beer provided until the hash cash runs out. Bring your ID.

Once upon a time, the beer lovers of the United States were very sad. The government ratified the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, banning all intoxicating liquors, including beer, beginning the period of American history we now know as Prohibition. However, in 1933, Prohibition came to an end. On April 7, President Roosevelt signed a bill allowing the sale of beer and wine with up to 3.2% alcohol content. It was a small step that paved the way to the full repeal of Prohibition in December. Now, we celebrate New Beer’s Eve each year on April 6! So grab a beer and toast to your ability to drink it!
