NATIONAL BEER DAY

National Beer Day is celebrated in honor of the day it became legal to buy, sell and drink beer and wine. If you are a beer lover, you can thank President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who signed a law in 1933 allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer and wine for the first time since Prohibition in 1920. The law did not affect restrictions on high-alcohol-content liquor, but it did allow people everywhere to legally crack open a cold beer and drink it without worry.
