Celebrate National Beer Day - April 7, 1933

On this day in 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act, which ended Prohibition and was signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, went into effect. The legislation allowed Americans to buy low-alcohol (3.2 percent) content beer and wine in public for the first time in 13 years. Prohibition was fully repealed Dec 5, 1933 with passage of the 21st Amendment.

So this day is officially known as National Beer Day Serve up a cold one and celebrate this day

Great to hear! I just restocked my beer fridge with 16 different microbrews from Oregon to Indiana. I think I'll try one.
