Jimmy Carter fact of the day

When Jimmy Carter signed Senate Amendment 3534 in 1978 he single-handedly revolutionized the American brewing industry. A portion of the amendment gave each household permission to produce up to 200 gallons of tax-exempt beer each year.

The American public had decided it liked its beer cheap, bland, and less filling, and the industry—which, after decades of consolidation, consisted of a mere 44 breweries in 1979.

Three decades later, the U.S. boasts 1,463 breweries, including 975 brewpubs. Bud Light and its analogs still dominate the market, but even your corner market may have at least a few selections to tempt the palate of Joe Microbrew: summer ales, double bocks, black lagers, maybe even a honey orange wheat ale.
