It’s always a good time for beer.
This Sunday, April 7, marks National Beer Day, when brew lovers come together to celebrate the day the Cullen-Harrison Act came into effect 82 years ago. Signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the law allowed the flow of low-alcohol beer and wine after more than a decade of Prohibition.
