Every year on April 7th we celebrate National Beer Day. This year it falls on a Friday, which allows us to celebrate as soon as the work day has ended! Or maybe you work for a sweet startup company that celebrates this holiday during the work day! Anyway, the question is, why is April 7th National Beer Day? Well, here is your answer!

National Beer Day commemorates April 7, 1933, the day that the Cullen-Harrison Act was sanctioned after being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. After 13 dreadful years of prohibition, on this day, in 1933 the sale of beer (ABV below 3.2%) became legal again in the US. Senator Pat Harrison and Representative Thomas Cullen are the ones to thank for this miraculous day.

President Franklin Roosevelt made a famous remark while signing the legislation, “I think this would be a good time for a beer”. And he was right!

Crack a beer open and celebrate this joyous holiday. What a time to be alive!

Cheers to beer,
