Happy National Beer Day!!

In honor of National Beer Day, I will be swinging by my local BevMo to pick up some tasty brews on my way home from work.  I think I will treat myself to a Midas Touch.  Or maybe I'll try something new in honor of this fantastic holiday.  I love beer.

Did you  know that beer is said to help lactating mothers produce more milk for their babies?  It's TRUE!  When Lily was born, I was not producing well, so we had to supplement her diet with formula, which made me really sad because my goal was to avoid formula.  Thankfully, a lactation consultant suggested that I try having a beer a day to help increase production.  Well, it worked, and the formula is no longer necessary!  YAY BEER!!!

About National Beer Day:
"In 1933 during the prohibition era, the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on March 23rd. That law was enacted on April 7th allowing the brewing and sale of beer in the United States again as long as it was < 3.2% (4% ABV). It's said that people waited in line overnight on April 6th outside Milwaukee breweries in order to legally buy beer for the first time in over 13 years. As a result, April 7th is known as National Beer Day and April 6th is called New Beers Eve. So this April, tell all your friends about this glorious new holiday, and raise a glass, bottle, can, or mug to the deliciousness that is beer."
