Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: Celebrate National Beer Day

April 7, 2017

At first I was confused... National Beer Day?! Isn't that every day? Well, apparently not. April 7th marks a historic event - the day that the Cullen-Harrison Act was entacted 85 years ago. 

 

If you're not familiar with the Cullen-Harrison Act, let me bring you up to speed.... FDR signed this law on March 22nd, 1933, which made it legal to sell low-alcohol beer in the US, MONTHS before Prohibition had been completely repealed. The law allowed for beer with up to 4% ABV to be openly sold after a 13-year ban on booze! Way to go, FDR! You certainly paved the way. Even dogs are excited about it!

Fast forward to today, where we have craft breweries popping up EVERYWHERE, and it's estimated that our country's beer business generates about 1.5% of the United States' total gross domestic product. Here at KISW, we love being in the business of beer, so it's no surprise The Mens Room is ALL over #NationalBeerDay...

 

Although low-alcohol beer isn't my usual thing, as I am an IPA connesseiur, it's certainly what I take on camping trips, river floats and music festivals! Whether it be high or low ABV, whatever you are drinking tonight, be sure to raise a glass to Franklin Deleanor Roosevelt and National Beer Day. 

 

Happy Adventuring,
