April 7 is National Beer Day, an unofficial holiday – marking the end of Prohibition. It was at 12:01 a.m. on April 7, 1933 that the Cullen-Harrison Act went into effect – meaning that beer customers could buy 3.2 per cent alcohol beer rather than “near beer”. Some 1.5 million barrels were immediately purchased at breweries that day, many having waited on-line for hours the day before.
