Summary
On this day in 1933, the sale of beer containing less than 3.2% alcohol by volume was permitted in the U.S., having been banned since the imposition of Prohibition in 1919.

On this day raise a cool, frosty one to celebrate the Cullen-Harrison Act going into effect in 1933.

This bill, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt allowed for the sale, purchase and consumption of beer once again. Alcohol was prohibited from the years 1920-1933 due to President Woodrow Wilson’s veto of the 18th Amendment.

After he signed, Roosevelt reportedly remarked to his aide Louis Howe, “I think this would be a good time for a beer.”

  • Did you know? Mississippi officially ended Prohibition on January 1, 2021.

The official day was created by Justin Smith who was a Virginia Craft Beer Examiner, and his friend Mike Connolly from Liverpool in England, according to the website. In 2009, Smith and Connolly created a National Beer Day Facebook page celebrating the holiday on April 7 coinciding with Roosevelt’s Cullen-Harrison Act.

To celebrate the holiday individuals are encouraged to grab a beer and spend some time with friends or post their beer-filled glasses on social media with #NationalBeerDay. Those celebrating are reminded to drink responsibility.
