National Beer Day – April 7, 2020

Tue Apr 7

On April 7, 1933, President Roosevelt took the major first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law allowing people to brew and distribute beer in the United States. Upon signing the legislation, FDR famously stated, “I think this would be a good time for a beer.” For the first time in thirteen years, beer drinkers celebrated and we’re happy to be able to purchase beer again. On that same day, 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed, inspiring the holiday celebrated today. For all you beer lovers out there – remember, always drink responsibly and never drink and drive. So, take a toast with us by celebrating National Beer Day on April 7, Cheers!

Why We Love National Beer Day

  1. The taste

    According to researchers, the taste of beer releases a chemical in the brain which makes people want to drink more. Moreover, beer’s taste - without even any effect from alcohol - can trigger the production of dopamine in the brain, the study by researchers from Indiana University found.

  2. Beer brings people together

    Beer provides that little bit of a reason needed to hang out with those we love. “Hey Hubert, want to grab a beer sometime?” Or “Hey Rihanna, want to grab a beer sometime?” I like to pretend I’m friends with Rihanna.

  3. Beer is a reward

    Beer is not just a drink, it is an achievement of sorts. From all the hard work that gets done – it ends with everyone getting together for a beer. It's sort of like a gold medal at the end of anyone's day.
