ABOUT NATIONAL BEER DAY
"I think this would be a good time for a beer."—Franklin D. Roosevelt
April 7, 1933 is the day that the Cullen–Harrison Act was enacted. This law, signed by then President Franklin D. Roosevelt, allowed people to buy, sell and drink beer in states that had enacted their own law allowing such sales for the first time since Prohibition.
People across the country responded by gathering outside breweries, some beginning the night before. On that first day, 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed.
National Beer Day was first created in 2009 by Justin Smith of Richmond, VA.
