National Beer Day is a fake holiday celebrated on April 7th every year. In 1933, April 7th marked the end of prohibition, which meant Americans could finally – for the first time in 13 years – legally buy, make, and drink beer. Upon signing the legislation, President Franklin Roosevelt made his famous remark, “I think this would be a good time for a beer.”
But this year, we have to drink beer for an even higher purpose. If you’ve been following Donald Trump‘s primary campaign message, you will know this for a stone cold fact: we don’t win anymore. We don’t win when it comes to China.
From Fox Business:
The Chinese are officially guzzling down more beer than Americans—making them the world’s largest beer market.
In 2015, they drank almost two times (about 25 billion liters) the amount of beer than Americans, who downed about 18 billion liters, according to a report by Euromonitor International, a market research firm.
While it’s true China has a population of 1.3 Billion vs America’s 320 Million, still, it’s beer. Beer is practically America’s national sport. We cannot afford to have our assess whupped in this department. It is a crisis of national identity. Now boys and girls, pick up your glasses, and drink up. If we each did 100,000 liters extra this year, we’ll crush them in no time.
