April 7th is National Beer Day!

April 7th is #NationalBeerDay marking the day that the *Cullen–Harrison Act was enacted after having been signed into #law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933.

*The Cullen-Harrison Act was designed to permit the sale of beer before Repeal of National #Prohibition. It amended the much-hated #VolsteadAct of 1919, which was the act of #Congress that enabled the 18th #Amendment and Prohibition.

Back in 1919, some of the #politicians who voted for Prohibition assumed that #beer and #wine #sales wouldn’t be banned – just hard #liquors – until #Prohibitionists used the Volstead Act to broaden the #booze ban.
