Today (April 7th) is National Beer Day

#143384 2 years, 4 months ago
Today is National Beer Day! People have been brewing beer ever since they began cultivating domesticated grains 8,000 years ago. Beer has been an important part of human culture ever since. For example, over 4,000 years ago an anonymous poet wrote an ode to Ninkasi—the Sumerian goddess of beer and brewing! Today, beer is the third most popular beverage in the world behind water and tea.

So why is National Beer Day celebrated on April 7th? On this day in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer as long as it remained below 4.0% alcohol by volume (ABV). Despite the low ABV, Americans were thrilled to be able to purchase beer for the first time in thirteen years!

Happy Beer Day to all. I will be enjoying New Belgium's seasonal brew "Dig" today and toasting the fact that they finally announced that they are opening a brewery here in our NC mountains. Sierra Nevada is also moving into the same area.

If your beer drinking sends you back to the couch pre-show, check out How Beer Saved The World on Netflix streaming.

Have a Hoppy Saturday!
