Yule of it.

Dearest Friends, Neighbours, & Kinsfolk,

As rain doth fall upon frosted moistened glass,
from which reflects le Grand Jack-de-Gas,
please knoweth our thoughts go to
those who make dear Acres true: (that's you).

Bringing your lively minds & delightful jokes
the Acres is want for you dames & blokes.
You see, without you our pleasant, orange-hued din
is simply not the same as when you're in.

o many thanks for completing us,
our wishes well go out to you, thus.

Happiness to you.

The Acres

Jaw of the Moose

The first day of January, 1917: a cold & fearful day in the trapezoidal province of Saskatchewan. It is this fateful day, after two years of having alcohol sales prohibited at any non-government establishments, that all liquor consumption & sales are halted completely throughout the wheaten lands.

Fortunately for wanting imbibers, the law of prohibition contained no clause against the pioneering spirit. One huge network of tunnels later, dug under the humble burg of Moose Jaw, and Saskatchewan becomes the centre for all who sought the casual pleasure of libation. Underground speakeasies provided carbonated brews & drinks to keep your upper lip stiff.

And so no one saw the light of day until 1924, when those fair prairie folk realized outlawing delicious porters, scrumptious hefeweizens, elegant lagers, & smooth lambics was downright crazy! Phew!
