Pre-game indicators: Frank the Tank goes old school on Coach K!
Although National Beer Day is today (April 6) in the UK, it is recognized nationwide among beer enthusiasts as an unofficial holiday in the USA on April 7, thanks to FDR. For those of us in the Midwest, it may be a chance to celebrate early, on New Beer’s Eve, while we watch Wisconsin and Kaminsky beat Duke in March Madness finale. The Badger faithful will cheer for a special Frank the Tank sequel…Mad-City beer bongs may flow following an NCAA title.
Per Wikipedia: National Beer Day is a celebration of the Cullen–Harrison Act being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. That law went into effect on April 7 of that year, allowing people to buy sell and drink beer again as long as it was < 3.2% (4% ABV).
Here’s a vote for celebrating this holiday with beers that go to 11 (see strongest beers in the world list at BeerTutor), or, the margin of victory in tonight’s Wisconsin championship run. Sorry Dukies, you’ve had yours and Christian isn’t on you side this time around.
