    House passes Beer Resolution

    While most of Washington was focused on Tuesday's election results, the House was busy doing something else: Passing a resolution about beer.

    House Resolution 1297, sponsored by Rep. Betsy Markey, supports "the goals and ideals of American Craft Beer Week."




    "We've got quite a number of microbreweries and entrepreneurs that are creating jobs, and we wanted to celebrate that this is a craft," Markey told POLITICO.




    "I think beer has been a tradition since this country was founded," said Markey. "We wanted to celebrate entrepreneurship — and good beer!"
    Yup, under the radar, among all the election results is one of the most important resolutions ever passed by Congress. The making of beer is now officially a craft. Good ole' all American beer.

    I'll drink to that...........................

    .....................After I get off probation next year. LOL.

    Technically whiskey would be the more authentic American alchoholic craft. It was the dominant beverage of the 18th and 19th centuries, among men, women, and children.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    For real. It is even better when your best friend's neighbor works there and you get free beer.

    Indeed. In fact, it was used as a form of currency amongst the farmers and hunters who lived in the wilderness. That's why when Hamilton got Congress to pass a tax on whiskey, some farmers revolted and Washington had to command troops as President in order to quell it.

    Anyways, I prefer rum and whiskey to beer.

    He's making the mistake in thinking Budweiser, Coors, etc, is "beer."

    It's not.
