Happy National Beer Day!
As many of us know, April 7th is a day chock full of celebratory drinking events, but did you also know that April 7th is considered National Beer Day?
April 7th, 1933 was the date when sale of beer would become legal for the first time in 13 years, signaling the beginning of the end of Prohibition. FDR signed the Cullen-Harrison Act - an amendment to the Volstead Act – that allowed beer to have an alcohol content of 3.2% by weight (4% ABV).
On the evening of April 6th, people lined up outside of bars to have their first taste of beer since the start of Prohibition. It’s sometimes even referred to as New Beer’s Eve!
This date signaled change, and without the Cullen-Harrison Act, we’d probably be sipping on some juice or drinking in some shady back alley today. Go out and celebrate – our not-so-distant ancestors fought for it!
If you want a great way to celebrate, come join us any time from the 7th to the 9th for Victory Over Prohibition, running all over the city!
