On this day in 1870, the United States begins using postcards! Postcards have been a wonderful way to send a short message along with a unique image of persons, places, things, and ideas. (That’s a noun really.) Some of the most fun and lighthearted postcards surround the beer industry.
Come to think of it, both Boston Beer Company in Boston, Massachusetts and New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins, Colorado have great postcards in their taprooms for beer-lovers to scribble on and send. They even pay the postage!
