Today's Reason to Celebrate

April 7, 2015 is

National Beer Day

Today is National Beer Day! Send a free Beer Day eCard to spread the word! People have been brewing beer ever since they began cultivating domesticated grains 8,000 years ago. Beer has been an important part of human culture ever since. For example, over 4,000 years ago an anonymous poet wrote an ode to Ninkasi—the Sumerian goddess of beer and brewing! Today, beer is the third most popular beverage in the world behind water and tea.

So why is National Beer Day celebrated on April 7th? On this day in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer as long as it remained below 4.0% alcohol by volume (ABV). Despite the low ABV, Americans were thrilled to be able to purchase beer for the first time in thirteen years!

Whether you prefer pale ale, stout, or lager, enjoy a pint of your favorite beer today to celebrate National Beer Day!
