I saw that you mentioned National Beer Day (perhaps by miastke) in your article. I just wanted make sure everyone knew that International Beer Day and National Beer Day are two very different holidays. There are a lot of unofficial random beer drinking holidays in the US. New Beer's Eve April 6thNational Beer Day April 7thNational Homebrew Day May 7thAmerican Craft Beer Week Starts on the 3rd Monday in May and goes for a weekInternational Beer Day Aug. 5thNational Beer Lover's Day Sept. 7thNational Drink a Beer Day Sept. 28thAmerican Beer Day Oct. 27th National Beer Day (April 7th) is the only with with a historically significant date. April 7th is National Beer Day here in the US. In 1933 during the prohibition era, the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on March 23rd. That law was enacted on April 7th allowing the brewing and sale of beer in the United States again as long as it was < 3.2% (4% ABV). It's said that people waited in line overnight on April 6th outside Milwaukee breweries in order to legally buy beer for the first time in over 13 years. As a result, April 7th is known as National Beer Day and April 6th is called New Beers Eve. National Beer Days around the world March 1st IcelandApril 6th EnglandApril 7th USAApril 23rd Germany
