If you need an excuse to have a drink on a Thursday, here’s a great reason…it’s National Beer Day on Thursday, April 7th! This year, instead of settling for just any old six-pack, pick up a bottle of Sauza Silver Tequila. Swapping out your standard beer can be a bit more exciting especially with a delicious cocktail that combines beer, limeade and of course, Sauza Tequila!
So now you’re up for a tasty drink, but also wondering how National Beer Day came to be? Here’s a quick explanation…Go back to January 16, 1919, when Congress passed the 18th Amendment which banned the making, transportation, and sale of alcohol ~ Prohibition. Although some thought this to be a great idea, there were many who disagreed, thus leaving those people to find underground and illicit methods for obtaining and drinking the stuff they had grown to love.
When President Franklin D. Roosevelt took office in 1933, he and his new staff set out to repeal this crazy amendment and on March 22, 1933, he signed the Cullen-Harrison Act which once again allowed the sale and consumption of low-alcohol wine and beer in public. This act went into effect on April 7, 1933, which is precisely why we now celebrate National Beer Day on April 7th!
