Raise your glass because Tuesday is National Beer Day! Whether you consider yourself a connoisseur, a weekend warrior or just have a brew here and there, today is the day to sip on a cold one.
National Beer Day is a celebration of the Cullen-Harrison Act being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933. It went into effect on April 7 of that year, allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer again after a 13-year dry spell, thanks to Prohibition in America banning the sale and consumption of alcohol.
When United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill into law, he reportedly said, “I think this would be a good time for a beer.”
