A Reminder On National Beer Day That Beer Is Good For You

Written by | Almost Like History, Food, Health


Today is Tuesday, April 7, which happens to be National Beer Day. So what better way to celebrate than by grabbing a couple of brews and toasting to your health?

Whether you’re a beer snob who won’t touch anything that doesn’t can’t be described as “craft,” a hipster who chugs frosty PBRs (or even Heineken!), or just someone who enjoys the occasional cold one after a long day’s work, there are plenty of benefits to drinking beer (I mean aside from having that sexy Dad Bod).

So why April 7? It’s not just a random day. April 7 is the day the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, which legalized the sale of beer with 3.2% ABV. This effectively repealed the Volstead Act, which enabled the enforcement of Prohibition, a dark time in this Nation’s History, and was a precursor to the passage of the 21st Amendment, which repealed the 18th Amendment that banned the sale of alcohol.

So hoist a pint or a can or a bottle of your favorite beer or lager or ale and think of all your poor bastard ancestors who had to break the law to enjoy their tasty beverages, and check out some of the healthy affects of beer below.
