National Beer Day 2012 - Saturday April 7th | International Beer Day, Aug 5th
- The year is 1933 and the United States has been in a state of prohibition since 1920. That's 13 long, dry years with no booze of any kind. But all that was about to change as President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Cullenâ€“Harrison Act into law, stating that on April 7th, 1933 it would once again become legal to sell beer with an alcohol content of less than 3.2% by weight.Now that may sound like a watery beer nowadays, but after 13 hard years of prohibition the American public was overjoyed! On the evening of April 6th, thousands upon thousands of excited Americans lined up outside the country's bars and breweries, waiting for midnight when they would once again know the sweet taste of beer. When midnight struck, citizens around the country erupted into beer-fueled celebration, earning the night the enduring title New Beer's Eve.
