Thanks to one man from Richmond, Va, every April 7 is National Beer Day. According to this report, while Justin Smith and his friends were at Buffalo Wild Wings, his waiter said to them “happy national beer day,” and their brains got to turning. After doing some research they saw it was a holiday in Iceland but not in the United States.

After starting a Facebook page and getting the attention of the Brewers Association of America, it spread like wildfire.

This day is to celebrate the Cullen- Harrison Act being signed into law in 1933, reversing the prohibition on selling beer in the United States. Beer comes in hundreds of types, flavors, and proofs and is one of the most widely consumed alcoholic drinks. Beer has always been a huge thing on this earth, research has shown evidence of beer production that dates back to 7,000 BC.
