"I think this would be a good time for a beer;" that's what Roosevelt said 78 years ago when beer was legalized after 13 years of prohibition. Have wiser words ever been said? Where would this country be without it’s beer drinkers? St. Patrick’s day would have probably hosted “Most Illegal Activities Day.” Thankfully, beer is here to stay, and in most cases, so is your beer belly. Back then people blamed society's problems on alcohol, but we only blame it for our bloated stomachs. In honor of National Beer Day and spending all our money on Heinekens, Guinness, and Corona’s at the local bar, we have constructed an awesome “how-to” guide on hiding that beer gut.

April 7th is National Beer Day, and even though I don't need a special reason to drink, I will most definitely be crafting this into some sort of excuse come Friday morning. Unfortunately, many people have no idea that National Beer Day even exists, so for the uninformed: National Beer Day marks the date that one of our most hard-drinkin' presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt, brought beer back into legality in the United States. That date was April 7th, 1933, a long 13 years after prohibition began. So Thursday night, get out to one of these bars, tilt your glasses upwards, and try to stay on your barstool.
