Our nation was born on alcohol. According to Mike Rowe, who joined The Cycle table today, takes us through a liquid history ride from Plymouth Rock to the Moon Landing on Discovery’s newest 3-part documentary: How Booze Built America. The documentary premiers tomorrow evening at 10pm and shows how Paul Revere rode tavern to tavern during his midnight ride, Thomas Jefferson brewed his own beer, George Washington Distilled his own whiskey and much more. Did you know that in the mid 1600’s here was a tavern every 8 miles on every road in New England.
Mike Rowe eloquently explains the history and more when he sat down with The Cycle gang during today’s show. Check it out.
