Every year since 1933 when President Franklin Roosevelt signed into law allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer up to 3.0% alcohol by volume, April 7th was marked National Beer Day. April 7th was when the Cullen Harrison act went into effect and changed the law of the consumption of alcohol.

National Beer day was first recognized in 2009, when Justin Smith a local from Richmond, Virginia was celebrating and promoting it on social media. His actions were more than noticed from beer lovers all over and now takes place every year on April 7th.

Every day is a beer day for us but heck- come celebrate with us today anyway! Here is what we have newly tapped at the Wharf Pub:
