Happy National Beer Day!

Happy Nation Beer Day!

Happy holiday, everyone!

Each year on April 7th we celebrate National Beer Day in the US.  This date is chosen because it’s the day that sale of beer (below 3.2%) became legal again in the US in 1933, after 13 long years of prohibition.  We can thank Senator Pat Harrison and Representative Thomas Cullen, who sponsored the Cullen-Harrison Act, for helping us to legally enjoy beer again.  This allowed it on a national level but individual states still hate to pass legislation to allow it as well.

Crack a cold one tonight and celebrate our FREEDOM to have a beer here in the good ol’ US of A.
