National Beer Day

After scrolling through Facebook, I discover that today is National Beer Day! I’m very worried that I only find this out after 10pm. What is happening to me?? People have been brewing beer ever since they began cultivating domesticated grains 8,000 years ago. Beer has been an important part of human culture ever since. Today, beer is the third most popular beverage in the world behind water and tea.
So why is National Beer Day celebrated on April 7th? On this day in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer. Whether you prefer pale ale, stout, or lager, enjoy a pint of your favorite beer today to celebrate National Beer Day!
 Shown below are a few of my own favorite home brewing photos.
