Today is National Beer Day

More specifically, American Beer day, sorry foreign brews.

We all know that I don’t have a particular penchant for alcohol.  But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t imbibe.

“Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”-Ben Franklin

Well, if Benjamin Franklin says it’s okay….

I'm a picky foodie in training. I can't stop talking about food, so writing about it seems like a normal transition. There are so many foods I don't like, and that's a bit of a problem. I don't really know how to cook but I love to bake. So I'm on a culinary journey and I want to invite everyone to join me.

    I think you have two different beer holidays confused here.

    National Beer Day isn’t until April 7th.

    There are a lot of unofficial random beer drinking holidays in the US.

    New Beer’s Eve – April 6th
    National Beer Day – April 7th
    National Homebrew Day – May 7th
    American Craft Beer Week – Starts on the 3rd Monday in May and goes for a week
    International Beer Day – Aug. 5th
    National Beer Lover’s Day – Sept. 7th
    National Drink a Beer Day – Sept. 28th
    American Beer Day – Oct. 27th

    National Beer Day (April 7th) is the only with with a historically significant date.

    April 7th is National Beer Day here in the US. In 1933 during the prohibition era, the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on March 23rd. That law was enacted on April 7th allowing the brewing and sale of beer in the United States again as long as it was < 3.2% (4% ABV). It's said that people waited in line overnight on April 6th outside Milwaukee breweries in order to legally buy beer for the first time in over 13 years. As a result, April 7th is known as National Beer Day and April 6th is called New Beers Eve.

    National Beer Days around the world –

    March 1st – Iceland
    April 6th – England
    April 7th – USA
    April 23rd – Germany
