Why April 7 is National Beer Day?



Friday, April 7, is National Beer Day, which commemorates April 7, 1933, the day that the Cullen-Harrison Act was enacted.


It was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on March 22, 1933.


The law allowed for the legal sale of low-alcohol beer in the United States, several months before Prohibition was completely repealed.


Roosevelt made his famous remark upon signing the legislation: ?I think this would be a good time for a beer,? noting the end to the nation?s 13-year-long dry spell.
