Happy National Beer Day to all the beer aficionados out there! Today is not just any other day; it's a day dedicated to celebrating one of the oldest and most universally enjoyed beverages in human history. Whether you're a fan of a hearty stout, a crisp lager, or an adventurous craft brew, today is the perfect opportunity to raise a glass to the rich history and diverse culture of beer.

The History Behind National Beer Day

National Beer Day is observed in the United States on April 7th, marking the day that the Cullen-Harrison Act was enacted after having been signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This act led to the repeal of Prohibition for beer, allowing people to legally buy, sell, and consume beer. Roosevelt famously remarked, "I think this would be a good time for a beer," and thus, a national day of beer appreciation was born.
