Guess what today is?
Groundhog Day? No.
Valentine's Day? Also no.
It's a day that few people know about and more people should:
On March 22, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition in the U.S. and signed the Cullen-Harrison Act, permitting the sale of beer with 3.2 alcohol by weight (4.05% by volume). The Act became effective on April 7th, and beer drinkers across the nation celebrated the ability to buy and drink beer for the first time in 13 years.
Think about that. Thirteen years of no beer.
Thirteen years of yardwork in the hot summer sun with...no beer. Football games...no beer. Watching the sunset by a bonfire...no beer.
So, how can we celebrate this historical day? Share a few pints with friends, check out the new craft brewery in town (Indiana is FAMOUS for craft beer), or just swinging by your favorite neighborhood pub for a nice cold draft.
