Today, April 7, is a national holiday. Close to the end of the dark, dark era of this nation known as The Prohibition, FDR's signing of the Cullen-Harrison Act on March 22 "allowed people to buy and drink low-alcohol content beer and wine in public," according to The Constitution Daily. It went into effect on April 7, enabling people to slug down a Pabst or the like freely until the 21st Amendment negated the horrible, terrible 18th Amendment that December.
A good, crisp, less filling read of the Daily's summary is on tap here.
As such, today is known as National Beer Day. Take one down, pass it around. Have a beer.
