It’s National Beer Day…..There Is a Reason For It!!!
Ya know......At first I thought some drunk people just randomly came up with this day just like there is a "National Hamburger Day", "National Donut Day", etc
But today, April 7th, is a HUGE deal in the world of beer and alcohol.
"National Beer Day" celebrates the ending of prohibition when people could buy, sell and drink beer for the first time in 12 years.
According to Wikipedia:
Recognized nationwide among beer enthusiasts,[National Beer Day is an unofficial holiday in the United States celebrated every year on April 7, celebrating the ending of prohibition when people could buy, sell and drink beer for the first time in 12 years.
National Beer Day is a celebration of the Cullen–Harrison Act being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. That law went into effect on April 7 of that year, allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer again as long as it was < 3.2% (4% ABV). People across the country responded by gathering outside breweries, some beginning the night before. On that first day, 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed, inspiring the future holiday. Today, April 7 is recognized as National Beer Day and April 6 is known as New Beer's Eve
