NATIONAL BEER DAY CELEBRATES THE RETURN OF BEER .... in 1933


April 7, 1933:  Washington, D.C.


Not sure that anyone today can relate -- after all, with over 6,000 breweries in the US now, we sure do like our beer! Get a beer in your hand on Saturday, April 7 to toast National Beer Day! And, yes, it would be ... "a good time for a beer" ...


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). What's now known as 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!

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 beer,  FDR and National Beer Day on April 7. (And, if you're an Untappd follower, there's a badge for that!)
