Since we here in the states have to make every little holiday or day of importance an occasion to drink, what better excuse to down some delicious beer than to celebrate 

National Beer Day on April 7th


In 1933 during the prohibition era, the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on March 23rd. That law was enacted on April 7th allowing the brewing and sale of beer in the United States again as long as it was < 3.2% (4% ABV). It's said that people waited in line overnight on April 6th outside Milwaukee breweries in order to legally buy beer for the first time in over 13 years. (liquor manufacturing and sales were still outlawed).


Though the beer they enjoyed 78 years ago wasn’t anything like the 7%+ ABV craft beers that many of us are enjoying today, as they were only allowed beer with less than 3.2% alcohol by weight (4% ABV), it still probably gave them a nice buzz.


So on April 7th, tell all your friends about this glorious holiday, and raise a glass, bottle, can, or mug to the deliciousness that is beer. Get to your nearest bar (or even your refrigerator), get yourself a frosty brew and thank FDR and your forefathers who fought so hard for the right to get buzzed (legally).

It's been awhile since I've had a beer. I have to admit that picture looks pretty enticing right now.
