National Beer Day 2017. Friday, April 7th

According to Wikipedia “National Beer Day is celebrated in the United States every year on April 7, marking the day that the Cullen–Harrison Act was enacted after having been signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. Upon signing the legislation, Roosevelt made his famous remark, “I think this would be a good time for a beer.”

The law went into effect on April 7 of that year, allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer… in states that had enacted their own law allowing such sales. 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, inspiring the future holiday.”

Today, April 7 is recognized as National Beer Day and April 6 is known as New Beer’s Eve.
