National Beer Day: A History

National Beer Day is celebrated every year on April 7th.  It's not official holiday, but hey, we need a holiday to celebrate what we drink on every other holiday.

The day is actually celebrating the Cullen-Harrison Act that was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933. This effectively ended prohibition and allowed people to begin selling, buying, and drinking beer.  As the story goes, people lined up outside of breweries and it is said that over 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed.

So get out and drink some beer! It's Thirsty Thursday after all!
