One of the world’s oldest prepared beverages, beer possibly dates back to 9500 BC when cereal was first farmed. It is recorded in the written history of ancient Iraq and ancient Egypt. Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage. Following water and tea, it is the third most popular drink overall.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Grab a beer and spend some time with friends. (Remember always to drink responsibly and never to drink and drive.) Use #NationalBeerDay to post on social media.
On April 7, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer, in the United States, as long as it remained below 4.0% alcohol by volume (ABV). 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.
Research found this day was created as National Beer Day by Justin Smith, a Richmond, Virginia Craft Beer Examiner, and his friend Mike Connolly from Liverpool, England. April 7th was chosen because the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law and became active on this day.
So Cheers to #NationalBeerDay and enjoy the weekend…it’s Friday! #TGIF
