Happy National Beer Day!
On April 7th, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Cullen-Harrison Act into law, ending 13 long years of prohibition. While the act required the beer to be less than 4.0% ABV, it was beer none the less. In commemoration of this act, today – April 7th – has become known as National Beer Day. So join me in grabbing a tall frosty one and honor of FDR allowing us to continue to drink our beloved beer.
Happy Beer Day! If only we had current politicians like FDR maybe Congress could fix the budget and we could all focus on important things like drinking more beer.

Cheers!! My name is Justin Smith, and I am the founder of National Beer Day. When I started this holiday almost 3 years ago, I had no idea it would get so big so fast. It’s good to see this important day in our history start to get the recognition it deserves. Thank you for helping spread the word about one of my favorite days of the year!
