Is this my favorite beer label…ever? I try to ignore the cute backstories that breweries love to turn out, but this portrait of a grandfatherly Franklin Delano Roosevelt cradling a late-night snifter of beer (that he’s sharing with an elf, apparently) is adorable. That’s FDR, the same U.S. president who repealed Prohibition in 1933 — by signing the 21st Amendment. Which of course is the name of the brewery.
Fireside Chat, a strong, dark, spiced winter ale, comes out October 15 and will be around for three months, long enough to be at every feast this holiday season.
