For Americans fond of their brewskies, Dec. 5, 1933, was arguably the biggest day in history. That Sunday, Utah became the all-important 36th state to vote an end to Prohibition. To show their gratitude to Franklin D. Roosevelt—who’d reportedly said, “What America needs now is a drink”—two brewers sent gifts to the president. One was Anheuser-Busch and other was D.G. Yuengling & Son. But while the Clydesdales dropped off only a case of Bud, Yuengling brewed up a batch of its “Winner Beer”—and sent FDR an entire truckload of the stuff.
