“Red, white and brew”

"Red, white and brew”—“red, white and blue” are the colors of the American flag—is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Look not upon the hootch when it is red—white—and brew” was printed in many newspapers on April 9, 1922 (during Prohibition in the United States).

“Red, white and barbecue” and “Red, white and booze” are similar terms based on America’s colors.


9 April 1922, The Sun (Baltimore, MD), “Tony Sarg’s Almanac” by Tony Sarg, pt. 4, pg. 2, col. 1:
“Look not upon the hootch when it is red—white—and brew.”

25 September 1926, The Billboard, “Furman and Evans,” pg. 20, col. 3:
The selection has words relating to the liquor question and he courts the laughs—they were weak when reviewed—by emphasizing and repeating the travesty on the national colors, “Red, White and Brew.”

19 January 1929, The Wall Street Journal (New York, NY), “By the Way,” pg. 1, col. 2:
True “red, white and blue” is between “red, white and ‘blue law’” and “red, white and ‘brew.’”

20 March 1933, Philadelphia (PA) Inquirer, “The Once Over” by H. I. Phillips, pg. 14, col. 2:
Hooray for the Red, White and Brew!

There may be a paucity of manufacturers, but there is no dearth of consumers who offer three cheers for the red, white and brew.

Summary:
Red, White, and Brew is the ultimate beer run across the United States, during which Brian Yaeger visits fourteen breweries of various sizes and talks to founders, owners, brewmasters, consumers, and anyone else he meets on his odyssey and who enjoys the making, tasting, and appreciating of brews. Red, White, and Brew pursues the roots of brewers who brought their craft with them from their homeland and investigates how the tradition is faring today and where it may head in the future. Covering everything from fifth-generation family-run brewing companies to first-wave microbreweries, this book is a travelogue, guide, and genealogical study of beer families and homebrewers from Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon. It is filled with eclectic characters and shrewd businesspeople who populate an industry as old as the New World, and who produce liquid philanthropy, one keg at a time
