About National Beer Day
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.”
