In 1932 with Prohibition in full swing, Jimmy Walker (New York City's Mayor) was a flamboyant showman but prohibition was making life difficult for New Yorkers. He organized the Beer for Taxation March which quickly turned into the We Want Beer parade after thousands turned out for an all day event. Starting down Fifth Avenue from 80th St. in Manhattan, the marchers went west on 59th St. and back north on Central Park West parading into the night. 

“Interestingly, at noon, the marchers paused for a minute of silence in honor of Charles Lindbergh Jr., whose body was found dead in woods in New Jersey two days earlier.”

It started as a fairly small protest, but quickly swelled to an estimated 100,000 marchers (and some accounts put that number closer to 150,000). One of the slogans they chanted was “Beer for Prosperity” and they also chanted the call and response “Who wants beer?” followed by “We Do!”

Prohibition soon ended in 1933.

Great gift!

Okay I haven't actually given it to the intended recipient yet, but I know he will love it! Feeling the neoprene material I know the sleeve will do its job and the print work on it is great- sometimes screenprinting doesn't look good on certain materials, but this has nice crisp lines and you can't see through the paint to the neoprene color. Would purchase again.

Keeps your beer cold. And let's everyone know you do not support prohibition.
