You might be asking yourself, how did such a day even originate? Well wiki says,
National Beer Day is a celebration of the Cullen–Harrison Act being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. Upon signing the legislation, Roosevelt made his famous remark, “I think this would be a good time for a beer.” The law went into effect on April 7 of that year, allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer containing up to 3.2% alcohol by weight (or 4.05% by volume) in states that had enacted their own law allowing such sales. People across the country responded by gathering outside breweries, some beginning the night before. On that first day, 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed, inspiring the future holiday. Today, April 7 is recognized as National Beer Day and April 6 is known as New Beer’s Eve.
Either way, we’re delighted to drink a draught or three as the U.S. once again turns another regular day into an excuse to drink. -like we needed it!-
Once you’ve quenched your thirst with our award winning brews, check out our awesome food menu. We’ve got pizzas, sandwiches, wings and salads. Give our pizza of the month a go – it’s the “You Gotta Be Bruschetting Me.” A pie topped with green sauce, seasoned chicken, bruschetta (tomatoes, garlic, balsamic), with chopped basil and a balsamic glaze drizzle.
And with that, we’ll just say CHEERS!
