PM Mdfles, Algona. IOWA. April 22, 1043 Grandma Hoskins knows a lot about history-but when «?e asked her where the first brewery was built In America, she •wouldn't take sides. "Yon sec," says Grandma, •'wherever the colonists settled, one of the first things 'they thought about was food and beer ... In fact, one reason why the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock was because the Mayflower was rnnnin' short of beer." Well, that was a new one on us, but Grandma showed it to us oe Marsh -Just as It was written In the Mayflower's log. And It seems that all through our early American history beer sort of tempered the hardships and helped to make us a tolerant, moderate people. From where I sit, beer is the American drink of moderation and friendliness—kind of a symbol of our personal liberty.
