HAPPY NATIONAL BEER DAY!





April 7, 1933:  Washington, D.C.  

Today, it’s a reason for beer drinkers to celebrate, grounded in history…..


On this day in American history, sales of beer (and wine) became legal again (as long as it was under 4% ABV; 3.2 alcohol by weight). National Beer Day celebrates the return of beer into the public marketplace on April 7, 1933, following passage of the Cullen-Harrison Act, signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. The law went into effect on April 7, 1933, and it allowed people in this country to legally buy, sell and drink beer again for the first time in 13 years following Prohibition! Can you imagine?

When FDR signed that law, he proclaimed: “I think this would be a good time for a beer,” the now-famous quote.  Later that year, on December 5, 1933, Prohibition officially ended, with the ratification of the 21st Amendment and Repeal of Prohibition.

So, raise a glass, bottle or can, and make a toast to FDR and beer today! (And, if you're an Untappd follower, there's a badge for that!)

Cheers!
