Today is National Beer Day, which commemorates April 7, 1933, the day that the Cullen-Harrison Act was enacted. It was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on March 22, 1933.
The law allowed for the legal sale of low-alcohol beer in the United States before Prohibition was completely repealed.
There are more than 4,000 active breweries in the United States, and the Beer Institute said roughly 1.75 million Americans have job as a result.
Those jobs contribute nearly $79 billion in wages and benefits each year to the U.S. economy. That's a lot of beer... huh? The most rapid growth in the past decade has been the number of craft brewers.
