National Beer Day origin

On April 7, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer, as long as it contained 4 percent alcohol by volume or less. This was the first step taken toward ending prohibition and was the first time U.S. residents were able to buy beer in 13 years.

Then, in 2009, Justin Smith, a Richmond, Virginia Craft Beer Examiner, and his friend Mike Connolly from Liverpool, England, founded National Beer Day by creating a Facebook page, honoring the day U.S. residents were allowed to brew and sell beer again.

The act signed by President Roosevelt signed was called the Cullen-Harrison Act, Senator Pat Harrison, and Representative Thomas H. Cullen, who both pushed for the legalization of beer and wine with a low alcohol content.
