Happy National Beer Day! April 7, 2011 April 7, 2011

It was on this day in 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act, signed a month earlier by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, legalized the sale of beer with an alcohol content of no more than 3.2% and in the United States. This act paved the way for the eventual repeal of the 18th amendment bringing an end to the “dark times” known as Prohibition. So raise your glass and give thanks!

Cheers!

    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!

      What a great holiday! Our world would probably look a lot different than it does now, and not in a good way, if prohibition was never repealed. Thank you for bringing awareness to this important time in our nation’s history!
      Cheers!
