Friday is New Beer's Eve
April 6th is the unofficial holiday celebrated by beer-lovers everywhere to commemorate the night before beer could once again be sold legally after the repeal of Prohibition. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Cullen-Harrison Act on March 23, 1933, followed by his famous remark, "I think this would be a good time for a beer."
He, along with everyone else, had to wait until April 7, 1933, before this was legally allowed. On the night before, April 6, lines of anxious people began forming outside of breweries and taverns, eagerly awaiting the stroke of midnight when they could buy a beer for the first time (legally) in over 13 years. Luckily, today we don't have to wait for midnight. We can celebrate this important moment in American history all day long!
Saturday is National Beer Day
Saturday the celebration continues! Since April 7th was the official day when beer could once again be purchased, this date is now a holiday celebrated all across the United States. Beleive it or not, it took until 2009 before someone had the good sense to bring some attention to the date.
National Beer Day was first created by Justin Smith of Richmond, VA only 9 years ago in 2009. Smith's friend convinced him to dedicate a Facebook page to the day, and that page was noticed by Colorado Beer Examiner, Eli Shayotovich. After Smith began promoting the day on various social media outlets, his efforts were rewarded with the beer drinking app "Untapped" creating a badge especially for National Beer Day. #NationalBeerDay has been trending ever since.
The holiday was officially recognized by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe in 2017, as well as on the Congressional Record by Congressman Dave Brat that same year. Just this year, in 2018, House Joint Resolution 90 was introduced in Virginia General Assembly to officially recognize National Beer Day in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It took a while, but now you can come into the Boot and celebrate this old/new holiday here with us!
