National Beer Day

at Voyageur Brewing

Another reason to celebrate beer! Join us on April 7th to celebrate the end of Prohibition and raise a pint to the delicious beverage we make in house. Join us for our Saturday brewery tour to learn about the brewing process and taste samples of our flagship beers! Here's our historical rationale for the party: "National Beer Day is celebrated in the United States every year on April 7, marking the day that the Cullen–Harrison Act was enacted after having been signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. Upon signing the legislation, Roosevelt made his famous remark, "I think this would be a good time for a beer." The law went into effect on April 7 of that year, allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer containing up to 3.2% alcohol by weight (or 4.05% by volume) in states that had enacted their own law allowing such sales. People across the country responded by gathering outside breweries, some beginning the night before. On that first day, 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed, inspiring the future holiday. Today, April 7 is recognized as National Beer Day and April 6 is known as New Beer's Eve."
