Few people need an excuse to treat themselves to a beer or two over the weekend, but sampling a pale ale or a pilsner this coming Sunday would be particularly appropriate given the day marks National Beer Day.

When is National Beer Day?

Celebrated each year on April 7, National Beer Day falls on a Sunday in 2019. The day before April 7 is known as New Beer's Eve. Admittedly, there are worse days to partake in a celebration of the amber nectar than a Sunday.

What does it celebrate?

National Beer Day was established to celebrate the day the Cullen-Harrison Act came into force in 1933. Signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22 of the same year, the act allowed Americans to buy and drink beer as long as its alcohol percentage did not exceed 4.05 by volume.

It is estimated that on the day the act came into effect, some 1.5 million barrels of beers were consumed, with people gathering outside breweries from the night before.

The act marked a crucial step toward ending prohibition, with the Eighteenth Amendment repealed on December 5, 1933.
