WEST PALM BEACH (CBS12) — Raise your mug, it's National Beer Day!
So what makes April 7th date so special? That is when beer became legal again in the United States after the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1933 and enacted on April 7th.
According to NationalBeerDay.com, the celebratory day was created by craft beer blogger Justin Smith and Mike Connolly in 2009. They petitioned for the date to become a national holiday, and there you have it.
And right here in our own background, these Florida breweries are producing some of the best beers in the world! (Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, Last Snow, Strawberry Shortcake, just to name a few!)
