National Beer Day April 7
NATIONAL BEER DAY
National Beer Day is celebrated annually on April 7th. Celebrate with a pint of pale ale, lager, stout, wheat beer or mild ale.
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.
NATIONAL BEER DAY HISTORY
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). Beer drinkers celebrated and were happy to be able to purchase beer again for the first time in thirteen years.
Our research found that this day was created as National Beer Day, an “unofficial” holiday by Justin Smith, a Richmond, VA Craft Beer Examiner and his friend Mike Connolly from Liverpool, England. April 7th was choosen because of the Cullen-Harrison Act being signed into law and becoming effective on this day. In 2009, a National Beer Day Facebook page was created by Smith and Connolly from which they invited friends to join. From that page, word has spread and April 7 is known by many sources as National Beer Day.
