Celebrate National Beer Day by learning, first hand, how beer is made at Veracious Brewing on Thursday, April 7, at 6:30 p.m. This workshop, sponsored by the Trumbull Library, will demonstrate brewing a beer, answer questions, go into the history and beer styles and provide samples of three-to four different home brews.
Veracious Brewing Company is located at 246 Main Street, Monroe and is owned and run by Trumbull residents Tess and Mark Szamatulski.
Registration is limited to those over 21 years of age and to the first 50 registrants. Register early on the Trumbull Library’s website, trumbullct-library.org. Be sure to include only one name per registration or registration will be voided.
April 7 is the date beer became legal again in the United States after the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on March 23, 1933. That law was enacted on April 7, allowing the brewing and sale of beer in the United States again as long as it was less than 3.2% (4% ABV). It’s said that people waited in line overnight on April 6 outside Milwaukee breweries in order to legally buy beer for the first time in more than 13 years. April 7 is a very beer specific celebration since prohibition did not officially end until December 5 later that year.
The Szamatulski’s have lived in Trumbull for more than 25 years.
