What is New Beer’s Eve?
New Beer’s Eve is an annual celebration that takes place on April 6th, the day before National Beer Day. The holiday commemorates the end of Prohibition in the United States, which began in 1920 and lasted for 13 years. On April 7, 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, legalizing the sale of beer with an alcohol content of up to 3.2%.
The end of Prohibition
Prohibition was a time in U.S. history when the production, sale, and transportation of alcohol was illegal. The movement, which began in the late 19th century, was led by various groups and individuals who believed that alcohol consumption was detrimental to society. The 18th Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in 1919, made Prohibition the law of the land.
However, Prohibition was not without its problems. The illegal production and sale of alcohol flourished, leading to the rise of organized crime and the establishment of speakeasies – secret bars where people could go to drink. Prohibition also had unintended consequences, such as the loss of tax revenue and the growth of the federal government’s power to regulate personal behavior.
Celebrate the end of Prohibition on New Beer’s Eve
The end of prohibition is a big deal for beer lovers everywhere, and if you’re a 21+ drinker, you can get in on the celebration by celebrating National Brew Day. This is the perfect excuse to check out your local brewpub. There will be fun activities and a chance to try some new beer styles! New Beer Day is a good time to celebrate the end of prohibition, and you can do it with a great night of science!
The Cullen-Harrison Act repealed the Volstead Act on December 5, 1933. The long dry spell in America came to an end on April 6, 1933, and President Roosevelt suggested that people drink beer to celebrate the change. This was so successful, that New Beer’s Eve was made into an official holiday. People lined up outside breweries and taverns to purchase legal beer. Around 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed on this day.
Go out and explore the craft beer wilderness
On New Beers Eve, we celebrate the craft beer industry. It is a vast wilderness of different brews that hasn’t been explored for many years. It’s an ideal opportunity to discover new brews and celebrate the end of prohibition! The end of prohibition gave brewers the freedom to experiment with their craft creations. If you’re an avid drinker, you can sponsor an event at your favorite pub and invite everyone to join. You can even host the event at your favorite pub or sponsor the event yourself!

Host a beer ball in Washington D.C.
In order to celebrate New Beers Eve in the United States, the first step is to get a beer ball. Before it was legal, it was illegal to sell beer in all but the District of Columbia and 19 other states. North Carolina, however, allowed sales of beer to people aged 21 and over. This allowed the capital to throw a party rivaling New Year’s Eve, but it was not legal to serve alcohol to anyone under 21.
