Saturday marks the 9th edition of National Beer Day: report


Saturday marks the ninth edition of National Beer Day, according to Newsweek, an unofficial holiday celebrating the most widely consumed alcoholic drink in the U.S.

Newsweek on Saturday reported that the event started in 2009 when two friends, Justin Smith of Richmond, Va. and Mike Connolly of Liverpool, England, created a Facebook page for it.

National Beer Day celebrates former President Franklin D. Roosevelt signing the Cullen-Harrison Act into law on April 7, 1933.

Fortune on Saturday reported that the legislation made it legal for people to buy, drink and sell beer containing up to 3.2 percent alcohol by weigh (or 4.05 percent by volume).

The measure helped pave the way for the repeal of Prohibition in the U.S. in 1933, ending the constitutional ban on alcoholic beverages nationwide after 13 years.

National Beer Day 2018 will result in beer deals and specials across the America, and readers can test their knowledge about the beloved beverage in our quiz below:
